Ekko Astral – Holocaust Remembrance Day

Ekko Astral, fresh off their debut LP pink balloons, releases the deeply impactful single “Holocaust Remembrance Day.” This acoustic ballad sees frontwoman Jael Holzman reflect on her experiences as an American Jew and confront the complex intersection of identity and politics. The song’s narrative spans personal encounters with prejudice, censorship of critical Jewish voices, and a visit to a site of violence in Israel, offering a raw and unfiltered perspective on these moments.

Holzman’s storytelling is both intimate and expansive, drawing listeners into her world while urging them to think critically about broader issues. The track’s acoustic arrangement highlights its emotional weight, with the weeping strings and poignant lyrics resonating deeply.

Ekko Astral uses their platform to call out the hypocrisies in media coverage and advocate for solidarity beyond borders. Proceeds from the Bandcamp release of “Holocaust Remembrance Day” will go directly to GoFundMe campaigns supporting Palestinian families affected by military violence.

Listen to the track below and join Ekko Astral in their fight for justice.
