Spanning the US and even across the Atlantic, Echorev are who intertwines not only different parts of the world in their line up, but an array of styles in their sound on Find North. From an intro that tricks you into thinking your iTunes switched over to Foster the People with “Still” to the Neon Trees like “The Fool,” you can see the spectrum they cover. The consistent toss back to the 80’s is also a nice ode to yesteryear. So for all who enjoy the sounds of that era, “Sparks” is right up your alley. One other thing that stuck out was the spacey ways of “So Familiar” because if you go “old school” and buy the album you’ll see that song in the album art of Find North. All in all this album is best summed up in the Echorev line, “…can we just dance our fright away?” With Find North, yes, yes you can.
