E-PLAY


The story surrounding Belgrade based band E-play was quite unbelievable from the beginning. How many local bands are fortunate enough to become “noticed” by "applying" to a demo "festival", after just a few years of practicing in various basements? The band began serious work in 1998, and soon thereafter - in 1999 at a demo band festival - E-play, won a recording award. Their first album was created in studio “Akademija”, in Belgrade (from June to October). Read more on Last.fm
The story surrounding Belgrade based band E-play was quite unbelievable from the beginning. How many local bands are fortunate enough to become “noticed” by "applying" to a demo "festival", after just a few years of practicing in various basements? The band began serious work in 1998, and soon thereafter - in 1999 at a demo band festival - E-play, won a recording award. Their first album was created in studio “Akademija”, in Belgrade (from June to October). Their volume filled and energetic stage presence couldn’t pass unnoticed.

From its beginning E-play had a rock’n’roll attitude, not only as musicians but through their performance and visual image as well. E-play released their debut album in November of 1999, for the MCM records – the same label that organized the above-mentioned festival. As an attractive female band, E-Play has been very active, since 2000, in promoting the material from their debut album. Some of the most popular Yugoslav films feature their songs.

The soundtrack for the movie “Munje” included their song “Prvi pogled tvoj” and the movie “Lavirint” featured the song “In the Middle”. The band provided the musical background for fashion shows, music festivals and performed many concerts in Serbia and Montenegro as well as abroad. Music performed by E-play is uniquely modern: drum and bass , techno, hard core… The dynamics and fusion of many influences has been presented in the single: “Zašto?”. Incredibly energetic bass lines, screaming guitar sound, head-spinning special effects and drums in furious rhythms, intersect with lead singer Biljana’s significantly slower vocals – creating a noticeable contrast. Similarly, film producer Milorad Milinković “visually interpreted” their expressions in their music videos.

Within a certain time period E-play was exposed to a broader audience through several new videos and singles which promoted the following releases: “Pop”, “Prvi pogled tvoj” - used in the movie “Munje”, and “Better Than You.” Their appearance in Bologna, Italy was distinguished with the song “Echo Tone” which closed the festival that was dedicated to Belgrade. This song, with very tender and intimate jazz influences, was recorded live on video. Two members of the band took part on the compilation of songs dedicated to Milan Mladenović , under the creative leadership of Koja, from “Disciplina Kičme”, with the song “Zemlja” “Crime” During 2004 and 2005 the band was preparing and recording the second album in “Akademija Free Zone” studio, in cooperation with producer Nikola Vranjković. From this collaboration the album «Crime» came out with a new, refreshed and enriched sound.

With songs from soft ballads to full sound the band succeeded maintaining the recognizable mix of electronics, live guitars, along with energy and melody. Contributors were guests musicans Saša Lokner (Bajaga i Instruktori), Kojot (Eyesburn), Čvare (Overdrive). E-play kept the recognizable underground style while not limiting themselves to only one genre. On this album they offered an alternative view of the world around them with a much wider sound spectrum. E-play is no longer only a “female” band.

Since their lyrics maintain the typical female sensibility, their sound proves, once again, that playing alternative rock music is not just a “man” thing. The band plans promotion concerts at every opportunity. They will be taking a part on the soundtrack of Milorad Milinković new movie - "Potraga za sreć(k)om". Following is a list of some of the places the band performed in Serbia and Montenegro and abroad: Beograd (Trg Republike, Terazije, Akademija, Dom Omladine, SKC, VYBE festival, Beerfest), Niš (bioskop Čegar, Pravni fakultet), Novi Sad (EXIT, Spens (opening act for Asian Dub Foundation), NS Time, Scena, Garaže), Obrenovac (grupni humanitarni koncert), Gornji Milanovac (Dom kulture), Zrenjanin (Zeleno zvono, MOVE turneja), Arilje, Lazarevac, Kikinda (Dom Omladine), Kruševac, Zaječar (Gitarijada), Požarevac, Aleksandrovac (Dani vina), Vršac, Mionica, Subotica, Banja Luka, Bolonja (BeoFest), Pirot, Zagreb (klub Jabuka), Tuzla, Šabac, Aleksinac, Vranjska banja, Krajišnik, Odžaci, Temerin, ...
