Review: Echoglass – ‘Little House’



Hailing from the Northwest of England, Echoglass have been pushing their diverse musical sound since 2016, carving an unpredictable path through a modern, post-industrial soundscape. After releasing a string of impressive singles such as ‘Lonely’ and ‘Hard’, the band are back in the spotlight, taking charge of 2020 with new single ‘Little House’.


Now a tight-knit duo, ‘Little House’ proves that the band have lost none of their musical proficiency or creative nous. A spirited single that continues the band’s legacy of unpredictability, ‘Little House’ ushers in a wave of poetic imagery and rich vocal harmonies that ebb and flow over poignant, heartfelt moments and an unforgettable, blues-infused solo.


Flowing with raw emotion and enduring contrast that bring a rich texture to the track, ‘Little House’ builds itself upon subtle progressions and an undercurrent of driven balladry, adding layer after layer of raw instrumentation. From delicate keys to fancy guitar work and enduring, hypnotic tones, the single perfectly reflects the dark, often mournful lyrical content.



Perfectly reflective of the opening concept that “sub-urban life’s for no one who cares about themself”, ‘Little House’ is a soulful escape from two masters of the genre. A tender expression of love, loss, and life wrapped in an engaging alt-pop melody, there is magic in every lingering note, ensuring that through it all, the Echoglass legacy stays pure and true to its emotive roots.
