Such a beautiful and moving song, that both captivates the heart with such eloquent vocals and soothes the soul with mindfully drifting music, comes along once in a great while. With a never-may-care approach and come-what-may style like being set adrift on a lucid ocean of dreams, SPC ECO give a soul-sensual soliloquy in the form of ‘The Heart And Soul’, from their upcoming album titled ‘Fifteen’, set to drop on February 15, 2019.

About SPC ECO
If the demise of ground-breaking duo Curve was a storm-cloud in the musical skies of the ’90s, the silver lining was that Dean Garcia went on to form SPC ECO with his daughter Rose Berlin in 2008.
An electronic musical maverick, Dean’s style complements Berlin’s vulnerable yet tender vocals. As a father and daughter, they explore their relationship and the world around them through music, creating heartfelt sounds to express the language of their souls and conversations that are often too difficult to be encapsulated by mere words.
“This album means everything to us. A collection of songs that simply happened to us over a period of the 9 months or so it took to record, during which time there have been numerously uncomfortable, unsettling and challenging changes all around us, not just to our personal real-life situations as to where we live, but also to the catastrophe of various unaccountable, blatantly corrupt governing bodies that perch menacingly over us all like death itself,” says Dean Garcia.
“This record is about that, this and the other, a selection of recordings that mean more to us than we can ever possibly know. We do know they’re our escape and energy, the glue that keeps our family together, the means to cope, deal and adapt which all goes towards making it The Heart and Soul of us, which by careful consideration is the first track we’re releasing to introduce this record.”

With minimal symphonic landscaping and gossamer vocals, SPC ECO have created something that is vast and beautifully pervasive. Here we find a collection of moods, wistful reflections made into sound, and barely tangible but emotively powerful expressions.
Last year, the 25-year-anniversary of Curve brought releases of deluxe editions of both ‘Cuckoo’ and ‘Doppelganger’ and output from Dean Garcia’s other sonic adventures, including S T F U with Preston Maddox, Blurred City Lights with Jarek Leskiewicz, and two collaborative tracks with dream pop outfit Ummagma. He also releases as M A D, together with Steve Monti from Jesus & Mary Chain.
