EKKSTACY is a 20-year old artist from Vancouver, Canada. He always wanted to be an artist, but he felt like that was something he couldn’t do because he didn’t have the confidence. However, after going through drug induced psychosis, his parents divorce, and alcohol abuse he found himself writing and recording music everyday. He took influence from film, and artists including Elliott Smith, The Drums, Bon Iver, and Bedroom. Right now, EKKSTACY describes his current sound as a fuse of indie, post punk, and synth wave.
Los Angeles' ALEXSUCKS are the unpredictable wildcards, quickly making a name for themselves in the LA rock scene. Front-man, Alex Alvarez, who has been skating since he was three, is known for his unapologetic style inspired by the garage dance-punk revival featuring catchy singalong lyrics. ALEXSUCKS' music is striking a chord with audiences, drawn to their authenticity based on just a handful of released songs made in Alex's room. ALEXSUCKS organic groundswell is reminiscent of the stronghold the grunge movement had on the Sunset Strip in the 90s and is poised to be amplified on their forthcoming album produced by the legendary Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Incubus, Rage Against The Machine).
