Molly Meldrum, television presenter for pop music series Countdown, saw Pseudo Echo at a gig and aired them on the show with a demo version of “Listening” in June 1983. They were signed to EMI Records and “Listening” – produced by Peter Dawkins – was issued in November as their debut single, which peaked at No. 4 on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart.
Their first album Autumnal Park, produced by Dawkins and John Punter, was released in June 1984, which peaked at No. 11 on the Kent Music Report Albums Chart. It was an Ultravox-influenced effort which, besides “Listening”, yielded the singles “A Beat for You” (No. 12 in April), “Stranger in Me” (July) and “Dancing Till Midnight” (December).
For the US market, the track would receive the remix treatment by Mark S. Berry who would produce the band’s second album in the same year.
