The advice given to most new acts is to keep it simple. Don’t get too ambitious.
Somewhere down the line, Ecstasy failed to get the memo. Instead, this London-based duo create exhilarating, reverb-drenched synthpop harnessing the power to convincingly summon the sanguine beauty of summer in cold-as-freezing February.
Combining the embracing sonic warmth of M83, the bespoke pop structuralism of CHVRCHES and the bitter-sweet optimism of Passion Pit, Ecstasy produce an overwhelmingly spirited and joyous sound akin only to a religious rebirth.
They certainly live up to their name.
