Echopark is the work of Antonio Elia Forte, an Italian musician now residing on London. Having spent recent months locked away in his room in Whitechapel, Echopark has emerged with his debut album ‘Trees’ which is released on April 16th. ‘Teleportation’ represents the first taster from the record, and if it’s an accurate barometer then the album is going to be a beauty.

The song straddles genres beautifully, coming over like a more urgent take on dreampop or a lighter of touch brand of synthpop. However you want to pin it down, it’s a gorgeously playful little trip through Forte’s creative brain which just makes you want to hit the play button again and again as soon as the song has finished.
