Ekko is a Norwegian singer, songwriter and producer. Her music could easily be described as the borderline between dream pop and dark electronica, as she merges carefully engineered electronic instruments and beats with layers of vulnerable vocal melodies.
Ekko`s debut single Paradise, released 1st of July 2016 received several reviews, features and radio plays including Tom Robinson`s Fresh On The Net (BBC Radio 6 Music), Amazing Radio and a recommendation by the Norwegian NRK P3 Urørt. The track is about the need to create an artificial paradise to escape oneself, and the consequences of momentarily happiness.
“The track is luxurious, between Ekko’s gorgeous vocals, the layering of sounds and the overall sense of immersion created through her masterful production.”

Ekko`s second single Mannequin, released the 7th of October 2016, takes a satirical look at consumerism and question whether it enforces the idea of perfection and artificiality in society for the sake of money.
“Listening to the intro to Mannequin is like walking through the Northern Lights while your hand is being held by an angel.” – Fresh On The Net
