Norways very own, singer – songwriter and producer, Rebekka Danielsson, aka EKKO has released her first track of 2020; magnetic, fully charged, dance floor filler ‘Off My Mind’. Emanating clean, yet addictive melodic hooks, simple catchy lyrics and immaculate production throughout, this tune is a sure fire club anthem that can be enjoyed at any time of the day, or night.
Listing influences such as Grimes and Tove Lo to name but a few, EKKO is a force to be reckoned with, exploring and pushing the boundaries between high energetic beat work, impressive layered synth scapes and crisp yet smooth, breath infused vocals.
Having already amassed over 6 Million streams on Spotify alone for her popular cover of the tune ‘Dance Monkey’, this year EKKO‘s trajectory is set in place, coursing strongly and aimed firmly at the top.
“The song is about that feeling of not getting someone or something off your mind. It permeates your entire system, your thoughts and your feelings. Almost to the point where it becomes an obsession that takes full control of your body and mind. It feels both scary and exiting all at the same time.
I wrote the song in Norway, rerecorded it in Los Angeles, and completed the production with producers Vegard Hurum and Einar Eriksen Kvaløy in Provence late last year. The music video was shot in Moscow which turned out to be the perfect location, as we found some excellent spaces and locations that emulated the mood of the song” – EKKO.
