Ekko Astral – on brand

Ekko Astral – on brand

Ekko Astral, the DC punk sensation, has unleashed their latest single “on brand” from their debut album pink balloons. The track features Jael Holzman’s compelling vocals which command attention amidst the dense layers of guitar, bass, and drums that define the band’s sound. “on brand” critiques the intersections of capitalism, consumerism, and gender with biting lyrics and a raw, unfiltered energy.

Holzman’s lyrics paint a vivid picture of contradiction and cultural critique: “She’s got a pair of cheetah print pink pumps made by federal prisoners / She likes to wear ‘em to the seventies club / wax nostalgic about racism and sexual listeners.” This line alone encapsulates the track’s intent to provoke thought through its stark portrayal of materialism and its discontents.

The song oscillates between explosive noise rock and moments of reflective, sparse instrumentation, showcasing Ekko Astral’s ability to blend intense soundscapes with thought-provoking lyrics. The result is a track that is not only a musical assault but a stark commentary on modern life’s paradoxes.

“on brand” is a testament to Ekko Astral’s fearless approach to music and message, making their debut album a landmark release that challenges listeners while providing a cathartic, energetic experience. As they continue to push the boundaries of punk with their innovative sound and confrontational themes, Ekko Astral is set to be a powerful voice in contemporary music.
