So ‘Much More’ is the fifth single of Amsterdam based Eckhardt And The House. It’s a stunning piece of laid-back Summer Chill duet pop of longing desire with a twist. Beautifully melancholic but also mysteriously ominous. And all that accompanied by Mediterranean bouzouki sounds and Mexican mariachi trumpets…
