Ekko Astral Announce Debut Album ‘pink balloons’, Share New Single ‘devorah’

    Ekko Astral have announced their debut album for Topshelf, pink balloons, sharing the single ‘devorah’ along with the news. The LP arrives on April 17, and it includes the previously shared song ‘baethoven’. Check out Kate the Cursed‘s video for ‘devorah’ below, along with the album cover (by Pablo Manriquez) and tracklist.

    “This song is about empathizing with marginalized people in spite of the discomforts of capitalism and expressing gratitude to those who persevere through the worst our world can offer,” the band said in a statement. “The chorus is a reference to ‘missing and murdered indigenous persons’, a term often used to describe the high rate of killed and kidnapped Native Americans. It’s a reference to how our country doesn’t give any legal consent to the use of these peoples’ lands, but it is willing to express some form of verbal contrition for those who are gone too early…and what that says about how it treats all of its historically disadvantaged communities.”
