Dead Leaf Echo released their full-length debut effort, Thought and Language earlier in the spring. And for a debut, the album is a concept album which details the life of a child from conception, birth, and until they finally grasp and command thought and language. As you may know, “Kingmaker” is the first single from the album, and the band released the official video for the song not too long ago. 

I think when you hear the song, you’ll probably compare it favorably to the Stone Roses, the Jesus and Mary ChainA Storm in Heaven-era the Verve and others – thanks to the fact that the guitars glisten and shimmer, creating a gorgeous yet dreamy feel. 

The band is opening for the Ocean Blue at the Mercury Lounge on June 1st, and they have a Northside Festival show on June 14th at the Trash Bar
