Echoes in a Shallow Bay is an EP by Scottish alternative rock band Cocteau Twins, released on 4AD. The EP featured four non-album tracks. It was issued on 29 November 1985, two weeks after another EP, Tiny Dynamine. The two EP sets, which featured complementary artwork, were also released as a combined double EP in a gatefold cover, and as an eight-track CD. The EP was reissued in 1991 as part of The Box Set and in 2005 as part of the singles/EP collection Lullabies to Violaine.
Appearing the same month as its companion release Tiny Dynamine, Echoes maintains the more -lush feeling of that EP; if its songs aren't quite as memorable as some of those on Dynamine, they still provide that lovely, unique Cocteau feeling in their performances and arrangements. Great Spangled Fritillary" adds a touch of dark psychedelia to the proceedings, gong-like chimes and buried feedback drones mixing with the more expected Fraser singing and drum machine loops

This is a beautiful album. The mid-eighties Cocteau Twins are simply magical. This album is a delight. Like their all best work-which may be all their work-this album is an experience. It’s worth owning on CD or vinyl so that you can play it all the way through and truly relish in this musical transcendental adventure.
