Biography

The Echoing Green is an electronica/synthpop band. It began as a solo project by Joey Belville in 1993, and has since released eleven major albums.

While founder Belville is a devout Christian, it is difficult to apply the same label to the band itself; while the lyrics are at times clearly infused with a strong element of faith, they are not specifically based around praise and at no point could they be considered to be preaching a message.

The music of The Echoing Green is heavily based in electronic sounds, however these are used more for their melodious structure than any desire to create an electronic dance outfit. As such, the music comes across as a well shaped, driving flow of intricate harmonies, underpinned with somewhat reflective, even introverted, lyrics.

    I could get used to the new album, just have to accept that it's a new direction for them.

    New cd to me is a total loss except for the Voices Carry cover. I don't like how their music is sounding more and more industrial. I want the Electronica Sound back. The Science Fiction Days.

    Too bad there is no one like them. Other Synthpop doesn't sound similar. Pristina may be the closest and it's cause they have a hand in it.

    @fallingup1986 you should hear other bands that sound identical to dm. Cause & Effect and Camouflage to name a few. Wolfsheim is quite similar as well. endless dm sound-a-likes lol

    Was just trying Depeche Mode for the first time, was struck by how much TEG sounds like them. I know DM influenced them, but they sound a lot like them, especially with their earlier stuff.

    It's the somber beauty of the new mellower songs that I love.

    This band needs more plays. I actually like the Albums from 1998 and before best. He's gotten too mellow. Less dance in his music.
