Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/ekhaisone Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ekhaisone Review from Respect Mag: Soul trio Ekha is releasing their album BCWTIOT on July 9th via LA audiovisual label Daylight Curfew. The group is composed of vocalist Thimali Kodikara and producers Devang Shah and DJ Jad1. Their sound is soulful, but in an affective rather than aesthetic way. In other words, their music feels like soul even though it doesn’t necessarily sound like it. They strip soul down purely to its intense affect. But it’s not minimalism. On “Vedette,” which is named after a friend of the group, Ekha aims high, incorporating elements of ska, dub, jazz, trip-hop and soul. “This can’t be real,” Kodikara sings. But yes it is. And it sounds glorious.
