For singer-songwriter Matt Lande, creativity was borne from heartbreak. After losing two of his close friends to cancer, Lande channeled his devastation into a new collection of songs called Glow, of which “Echo,” an emotive, alt-pop track, is derived. At first listen, it’s obvious how raw this is for Lande. “It’s important for me to fortify a deeper connection between the music and the listener so my intention is to be as vulnerable and as real as possible,” he says. “My music also invites people to learn more about me as a person so they can see my other side, which is frighteningly goofy.”

Here, in its Popdose premiere, check out the video for “Echo” below, and find his album on iTunes.
