    Wonderfully accomplished in construction, devastatingly powerful in delivery, Echo Lake have just raised the bar one notch higher for everyone around them.

    Wild Peace is a largely subdued affair, but there's so much happening just below the surface of the music that it's easy to miss some of the album's buried brilliance while you're distracted by its glimmering melodies.

    What the south London quintet have made is an album full of delicious dream-pop.

    [At times on Wild Peace] you might wonder if Echo Lake are merely a caricature of every previous shoegaze and dream-pop outfit. What saves the duo is how splendidly their iridescent sounds can evoke a moment, allowing listeners to lose themselves in the music.

    While it is ever-so-slightly patchy, it would be unkind to suggest that Wild Peace is anything other than an impressive debut.
  7. 60
    Songs like "In Dreams" begin promisingly but grow stale, while others lack standout qualities.
