RODRIGO Y GABRIELA's Cover Of PINK FLOYD's "Echoes" Is Absolutely Beautiful
Acoustic duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela is returning to the world after five years with a brand new record titled Mettavolution.
Rodrigo Y Gabriela are incredible guitarists and fantastic writers, though they've decided to kick off the promotional cycle of their new record with a cover of Pink Floyd's "Echoes." Not a truncated version either – this is the full-on version re-imagined for two acoustic guitars.
"We are big Pink Floyd fans. That track, specially the live in Pompeii version means a lot to us, we even made a huge visual reference in our video for 'Hanuman'. Besides that, the lyrics are even more relevant now than they were 45 years ago, the search for knowledge about ourselves, it's becoming a key element for survival these days, that's what evolution is all about at the end of the day."
Seriously, go listen to more Rodrigo Y Gabriela if you're not familiar already. They're damn good at their craft. Mettavolution is out April 26.
