ECHOPLAY – Change (Reviewed)


Genre: Indie-rock

ECHOPLAY write the kind of self-affirming indie-rock that kids can scribble across their textbooks. 

Decades later, from music critics to social scientists, everyone has an opinion about why the alternative and indie-rock bands of the 1990s achieved such global success. After all, they started with nothing and were going against the popular trends. And, after all, the bedrock of their music was sounds that had been used before. 

The simple answer is that, like ECHOPLAY’s music, it wasn’t sound alone that did it. There was an attitude that audiences could respect and with which a lot of them felt a direct connection. 

Part of that involved speaking earnestly about life’s troubles and sharing deep and often dark feelings while their pop competitors were busy writing songs about girls and cars. 

Another aspect was the ability to integrate new sounds, bizarre imagery, and leftfield songwriting ideas into the mix. While the songs almost always had a chorus, a few very sharp turns had to be taken before reaching it. 

Netherlands’ ECHOPLAY pact with themselves is to write indie-rock music that’s true to their beliefs, and that’s brave enough to incorporate eccentric ideas.  “Change” talks about consistency and holding one’s ground in the face of adversity. The song utilizes interesting guitar effects and, at times, an almost jazz-like love of dissonance. It’s a song indebted to the core values of independent rock music.
