REMY is particularly delighted to share the first look at Wicklow experimental electronic act EHCO's live video for their most recent single 'Hunted' which was shot in The Mermaid Café in Bray under the stewardship of director Rosie Barrett, with lighting by Conor Biddle. 

After starting out as a solo project for ex-Enemies musician Eoin Whitfield circa summer 2017, the project quickly evolved when he teamed up with vocalist Jessy Lord on their first release 'Raise it up'. The pair have since released two other singles in 'FIA' and 'Éiclips'. After establishing their live performance in local venues in their hometown and Dublin, numerous festival performances followed such as Other Voices and Castlepalooza, and more recently EHCO remixed DAITHÍ's latest single 'Orange'.

Patience has been one of the bedrocks of EHCO's growing success, a remarkably hard work ethic in fine-tuning their live set and recording new material has pushed them quickly to the forefront of the Irish music consciousness. The pace has quickened slightly in recent months as the momentum builds, and they are due to release their debut EP shortly which has just been completed, as well as the concept video for 'Hunted' premiering on Nialler9 last week (see below - DOP - Robert J. Kavanagh).

Of the single itself, in our recent review we wrote; "With their fourth single, EHCO, led by Eoin Whitfield and fronted by Jessy Lord move firmly into the heat zone, they have truly found their groove now and taken it to another level. 'Hunted' has a life of its own, the movement of sound is so chill and all-encompassing that it takes control of your mind and switches every other sense off for its entire duration, incidentally, Lord has also become my favourite Irish vocalist in recent times. Not many acts are able to deliver such well executed escapism and such a spiritual drift in their music. That's 4 out of 4 for EHCO now."
