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.
