NEGATIVE was released via Steve Stoute’s UnitedMasters and combines elements of indie, lo-fi, garage rock, punk and more.

In an interview with Alternative Press, EKKSTACY spoke about his unique sound and vision.

“I don’t really listen to anything that sounds like what I do,” he says. “I’m not saying that because I think I’m original. I just don’t know of anything that sounds like me.”

It’s a fair comment, given that he snakes through the history of alternative music, from the 1980s to now, in a way that is wholly on his own terms. That path matches his vision, which aims for the top.

“I always wanted to do something that was cool, something that mattered, something big,” he continues. “I wanted to make music since I was a kid, but I was kind of worried I didn’t have anything to say. It took me a while to take the chance.”
