Echobelly stood in contrast to the lad-heavy scene of Brit-pop. Sonya Madan, a vocalist who was born in India but raised in Britain, defied many of the lyrical conventions of the scene, but Echobelly’s music — a loud onslaught of guitars inspired equally by the Smiths, glam, and new wave — fit comfortably within the confines of British ’90s indie. The band arrived in 1993, releasing the single “Bellyache” just as Brit-pop’s wave began to rise and they remained popular throughout the mid-’90s, with their albums Everyone’s Got One (1994) and On (1995) both reaching the U.K. Top 10. Echobelly continued until 2004 and reuniting in 2009, mounting a full comeback in 2017.
