Echoes biography
ECHOES are a four-piece band formed in 2002 in the French town of Rouen. They play a brand of progressive rock influenced by KING CRIMSON, PINK FLOYD, THE DOORS, QUEEN and DEEP PURPLE, as well as by classical music. Their first, self-produced album, called "Entrance is Everywhere", was released in 2004; while their second effort, "Rachel", was released in September 2007.

At present, ECHOES are touring extensively in their home region of Normandy and in the neighbouring areas. Their main project, though, is putting together a multimedia performance, in partnership with the theatre group "Still Kiddin'". The show, which will combine music, film and acting, is due to be staged in 2008 at the theatre of the University of Mont-Saint-Aignan





Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :
ECHOES are interesting example of modern French prog with a theatrical bent.

Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars French group from Rouen with a history dating in 2002, when they were found by guitarist/vocalist Aurelien Lecourt, keyboardist/vocalist Yves-Marie Persil, bassist Antony Deblaere and drummer David Coue.With the help of female flutist Helene Fouquet they manage to record their first album ''Entrance Is Everywhere'', a self-produced work released in 2004.

With such a name it is almost impossible to deny your influences.Echoes are obviously influenced by PINK FLOYD and their repertoire delivers inspirations starting from the SYD BARRETT-era and ending up in mid-70's with flexible albums such as ''The dark side of the moon'' or ''Wish you were here''.Plenty of instrumental guitar jams, laid-back Hammond organ and British-styled smooth lead voices recall the late-60's UK Psychedelia, while discreet jazzy and Blues Rock hints are also present.The album is not particularly convincing with the vocals shining through, but musically it is a rather unoriginal and monotonous work.It balances between dated Psychedelic Rock and dynamic Heavy/Psych with few elements out of this range.''Ripper'' is propably the best track with some ''Atom hear mother'' inspirations: Orchestral keys, nice Hammond organ and very good guitar work.The rest of the album basically moves on scratcing riffs, psychedelic textures and supporting organs in a constant mood, however the more pounding tracks even explore the sound of DEEP PURPLE and the energy within is definitely welcome like on ''Horses''.

Not really a bad effort.For lovers of 70's Psych/Prog with a fair dose of heavier cuts this is propably a nice listening.It just relies too much on this movement with rare personal adjustments...2.5 stars.

3 stars Clearly this french band has taken it's name from the PINK FLOYD song of the same name. They do have a sound that reminds me of early FLOYD, but they also have added their own flavour to it. There are songs and passages on this disc that are fantastic, but there are also some songs and passages that I could take or leave.The organ play is a plus for me, the vocals are ok for the most part.

"Night The First" reminds me of VIOLETA DE OUTONO and is also my favourite track. Gentle guitar and vocals create a cool sound to open. After a minute organ and more passionate vocals arrive. Before 2 minutes it sounds so much like VIOLETA DE OUTONO. Nice. The contrast continues. I can't say enough about this song. I had such high hopes when I first heard this track but the rest(except the last song) aren't even close to sounding this good. The organ runs are outstanding. "I Met With Scorn" opens with a drum and piano melody. The tempo picks up and vocals arrive after 2 minutes. They aren't very good either. As Eric mentioned the accent is strong. Guitar before 4 minutes. Passionate vocals(better) 6 1/2 minutes in with some backup vocals too. "The Lift" opens with an organ solo that is joined by guitar and drums. It calms down as vocals arrive a minute in. This pattern is repeated. "Supermarket Santa Claus" is pastoral with piano and synths. Drums follow then vocals 1 1/2 minutes in. Guitar after 4 minutes.

"The March Of Rachel" is my least favourite track. It opens with piano as a full sound arrives a minute in. A minute later we get this ethnic, waltz-like rhythm that I just don't like. "Run To The" is an uptempo track with vocals. Not a fan. I do like the brief calm sections though. "For Your Love" is pastoral with outbursts of organ.The best part is 4 1/2 minutes in to the end.This is my third favourite of the bunch. "Until The Last Shadow Is Gone" has a classical feel to it as piano and flute play. Vocals and light drums join in. Some scorching guitar melodies 3 1/2 minutes in. "Night The Last" is like the conclusion to "Night The First" the opening track. It's really a toss up to which one is better. Just love the sound. This features a powerful organ sound, then it calms down beautifully.

There certainly is a lot of potential with this band, and i'll be interested to hear what their next one sounds like.

3 stars Well, at this moment I may not complain about the situation for the lesser known and unknown new progrock bands on Prog Archives: last week Oaksenham from Armenia was added, fellow symphomaniac Bhikkhu is busy with the inclusions of Neverness from Spain and Obscura from Italy and today I noticed that Echoes from France is added, good work! Echoes is a new French four piece band with an additional female player on flute traverse. This second CD entitled Rachel is an own production and distributed by the excellent French progrock label Musea

Listening to Rachel I presume that the band name Echoes is a kind of tribute to the sound of Pink Floyd their album Meddle but I also hear elements from early Jane and Eloy. Echoes their sound is build upon lots of tension between the dreamy and more compelling parts with lots of organ and sensitive electric guitar. Remarkably is the variety in the instrumentation: twanging guitar and organ in Night The First, sensitive electric guitar and sparkling Grand piano in I Met With Scorn, a sumptuous church organ sound with fiery guitar and vocal harmonies in The Lift, Grand piano and flute traverse with a swelling organ sound in Supermarket Santa Claus and piano with flute and biting wah-wah guitar in Until The Last Shadow Is Gone. One of my favorite tracks is The March Of Rachel: majestic piano play, then a slow rhtyhm with propulsive guitar work and catchy guitar runs, followed by fragile piano flights and a tight tango rhythm with theatrical vocals, this sounds like a rock-opera!

I had to get used to the English vocals of these Frenchmen (three musicians also sing), especially in I Met With Scorn the accent is a bit too obvious. But I am glad that in general the vocals sound OK although I would have been more pleased with French vocals ( I always prefer native language). My conclusion: a wonderful album with moving work on organ and guitar that has carried me away many times during the running time of 60 minutes! My rating: 3,5 stars.
