Out Of Line Music
Release: 27 October 2021
Caitlin Stokes, the frontlady from Corlyx, comments about the single: “The Echo is my Postpunk revival but I’m doing it my way, I’m deeply inspired by the 80’s and 90’s so I sort of mashed the two together, I’m also not a typical goth singer either so this track has its own vibe happening, it’s a song about running from my demons, the voice in my head, the sirens.”
Corlyx is Caitlin Stokes and Brandon Ashley, originally formed in Los Angeles until the duo set out for Berlin, now living in Brighton U.K. Corlyx adds a live bassist to their lineup and have been exploring the realms of darkwave/postpunk with a modern production. “We are so excited for the new record coming out spring of 2022 and the amazing opportunity we have been given to join the Out Of Line family, big plans to bring the live show everywhere we can, I’m loving the live guitars, bass and synths approach we’ve got going now, the perfect blend of electronic and live instruments, follow us on @corlyx_official for updates!” – Caitlin Stokes, CORLYX –
Singer Caitlin commented earlier on “The Echo”, that the song is also deeply influenced by the passing of her mother and helped her get through grief and serves as a therapeutic release as well as an upbeat anthem for coping and moving forward. The song harkens back to the earlier days of the band with an electro-influenced melding with their darkwave/post-punk sound. The music video is filmed in Torino, Italy, and is also directed and produced by the vocalist Caitlin Stokes.
