3.5 greatajcollins15 | April 24th 24

The debut album from DC-based band Ekko Astral offers a blend of traditional concepts in the fusion of noisy post-hardcore and post-punk. However, what sets this band apart is their approach through a lens that's distinctly influenced by online culture, evident in tracks like "UWU Type Beat" and "Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between L'enfant and Eastern Market." Setting aside these unique titles, "Pink Balloons" stands out in various aspects, particularly in its infusion of raw energy reminiscent of the classic DC hardcore scene. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant 80s and 90s DC hardcore and queercore scene, Ekko Astral showcases a youthful vigor that's both refreshing and authentic. While the album's conclusion may feel a bit awkward, the group exhibits a wealth of promising ideas. I'm eagerly anticipating their evolution and what the future holds for them.
