Thought I'd post some links up for my band Ektoise... We're a bit difficult to quantify really, we basically go by the concept of melding any/all forms of music that we appreciate into this one big diverse thing that expresses all manner of thoughts and feelings rather than one specific set. So since 2007 we've made music containing Alternative Rock, Electronica, Doom, Trip-Hop, Shoegaze, Avant-garde, Drone, Ambient, Power Electronics, Hardcore, Folk, Dance, Psychedelia, even some Pop...
Influences for the band (other than tBd, which is a little obvious
