about

Echo Nuvo Oakland, California

Astra and Dev met through pure coincidence outside of the DeYoung Museum in 2010.

Their mutual love for analog synthesizers and dancefloor inspired beats is the driving force behind Echo Nuvo.

Dev now resides in Oakland, and Astra in Berlin.

Track Name: Golden Thread
Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi

When we lock eyes from across the room
Yeah I feel the truth so badly
I don't mean to rush but the reason's trust
Yeah it's hard to find here sadly

Love is an alibi
Yeah I feel the truth so badly
Love is an alibi
Yeah it's hard to find here sadly

It's the golden thread that keeps us tied
To the fates that be / were they all lies
And inside my head inside my heart
I know tonight is just the start
And the thread's too tight so it's time to cut
To cut it loose for just a night

Love is an alibi
Let's cut it loose for just a night

The golden thread
We saw together
Is thin and bright
I realize

If I'm the fool I will become the magician on the chariot
The wheel of fortune spins right past the tower and the devil
So here we are with the sun and the moon and all of the stars
I know that we are tethered to the fates that be
This golden thread

Let's cut it loose for just a night

Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi
Love is an alibi
Track Name: Macawbre
Repeat what is heard
To fly home
The world is a blur
When you find no
Place to perch
Try and search
Try and search
Papaya mango
desire
What drives us to go
Up higher
Life’s a bore
Colors soar
Colors soar

Red green yellow blue
How do I know your colors are true
Macawbre
Green blue yellow red
Is the cage real if it's not in my head
Macawbre

Repeat what is heard
An answer
The wires emerge
A cancer
Canopy screams
Just a dream
Just a dream
Banana and berry
A last meal
Eyes oh so weary
The past feels
Warm like gold
As it folds
As it folds

Red green yellow blue
How do I know your colors are true
Macawbre
Green blue yellow red
Is the cage real if it's not in my head
Macawbre

Red green yellow blue
Red green yellow blue
Macawbre
Macawbre
Macawbre
Track Name: Never In The Right Time
In the back / Of the car / Ride you don't remember
I held your hand for just a little while

Nothing is / different / But I wish it were because
You told me recently you would love me

Never in the right time

Two years ago be / fore you left / San Francisco
You were standing in my kitchen

In a haunted corner of the room
That was when you tried to

Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time

In your room / in the dark / but I don't remember
This was how we started years ago

Didn't we / establish then / the proper protocol
Was to act like nothing happened?

Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time

You and I are
Sliding glass make out doors

Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Never in the right time
Track Name: Silver Palomino
Watch
The silhouette of the sun
Past
The distant horizon
Tales
Told by the ancient shaman
Yield
A ghost that has fallen

True
Heroes of these ruins
Shine
In the moon light
Hear
The evening horse hooves Pounding
Through
The thick of the night

On vultures wings
To see a palomino
His silver shape
Is all we can know

By the rattling snake bones
No blood on its fangs
Its poison is useless
On the grey mustangs

To see a palomino
A silver palomino
