"Echo Raptors are a 4 piece Rock 'n' Roll band from Belfast. Formed in late 2009, by four lovers of the 60's and 90's musical greats; Long-term friends Philip Rainey and Emmett Stewart teamed up with Vincent Caddell and later Owen Duffy to complete the line up. The band has been working hard at developing huge and exciting rock and roll anthems and crowd pleasing songs. They have been compared to the likes of the Stone Roses, Jet, The Verve and early Oasis. Their first EP Wasteland recieved regular airplay on BBC's ATL radio show and 2 of the tracks (Sinking in the Shadows and Talking Machine) reached number 1 in the NI chart. The title track wasteland has also been used in an online commercial for Kopparberg Cider. Gigs have included a support slot with Ocean Colour Scene's Steve Craddock, a headline slot at the Liverpool Sound City festival and a Headline slot at the Cavern Club. The bands last EP ' the plastic people' was met with rave reviews across the web and by their local fan base. Described as one of the most exciting and refreshing guitar bands of the last few years and with another wave of even better songs to come for the same project, 2013 is hotting up to be a great year for Echo Raptors."
