The Cinema Echo was founded as in Denton, Texas in 2006 so that a few musicians could make some noise. It has involved several musicians in several roles over the years, and each has left an imprint on the band's sound. The band pulls influence from Dream Pop, New Wave, Jangle Pop, Shoegaze, Electronica, Folk, Jazz and Surf music to make a sound very much their own.
The Cinema Echo released it's first album, entitled Glow, in December of 2009. The album pulled in the best elements of the band and showed off the bands love of playing through multiple styles of music with jangling rock songs like "Liars", hard charging rockers like the album opener "Untilted" and "(909) Panic", and even the avant-garde such as "Everyone Here is in Love with You". It also featured other standout tracks including the ambient and danceable "Bright Child", and the arena folk rocker "Closed Captioning".
On April 3, 2012 the band released Last Light. Like it's predecessor it is a complete DIY effort from the band. The first single "Pixels" is massive sounding New Wave song that combines acoustic and electronic percussion with fuzzy, propulsive bass line that drive atmospheric keyboards and jangly guitars. A concise nine song record, Last Light rewards multiple listens. Last Light also includes "Everything Everything" (the opening track, inspired by the band's love of eighties music by bands such as The Cure and The Police), "RSVP" (a homage to 60's surf and pop music), and "The Great Aerial Wanderer."
In 2013 The Cinema Echo released the Industrial Super Permanent EP, which not only included the title track, but also new songs "Burning Down the Halls," "Overpaid for Mussels," and "Sara, Soda, Dakotas." Currently the band is working on their third LP.
