Canadian brother-duo who blend influences of early Posies, some Fountains Of Wayne with some moody, post-BritPop sounds. Skates gently through a quietly pretty blend of the aforementioned sounds all woven together with solid poppy laid-back songwriting. Echoes In All Directions contains a consistently enjoyable melange of striking influences brought together with great care in each songs arrangements and the craftsmanship of each song. “4 stars. Skytone are probably the only Ottawa band – maybe the only Canadian band – producing power-pop this melodic, structured and free from pretension. The `70s/`90s British influences just drip out of the speakers, as if Badfinger had climbed on stage with The Bluetones at Glastonbury. But why steal Skytone`s thunder with comparisons? The melodies are simple, with notes drawn out over the full four bars in most songs – just how good, catchy power-pop should sound.”- HourCanada.
