Ekidna Releases Heavy-Hitting Single "Blurred"

Ekidna is a songwriter, producer and performer from Italy. He grew up playing hard and heavy riffs on guitar with his first band all over the northern region of Italy. Thanks to an extraterrestrial intervention, he discovered electronic music and production and began to travel throughout Europe and the United States, wandering through an ever-evolving soundscape that lead to the release of his first tracks. In his music, you can find an homage to the metal scene as well as nods to alternative electro pop. Love, rage, humans and snakes, welcome to the cave, his mind is the Ekidna.

BuzzMusic is proud to present a single by Ekidna called “Blurred”. The song takes off immediately, with a heavy-hitting beat and raucous synths and vocals. The verse sports vocals that are much more subdued and quiet. They build tension throughout which perfectly sets up the return to each chorus. The song is nicely split up by a bridge with soaring vocals, rich synths, and the beat drops out to highlight these two elements. Aspects of heavy metal can be heard throughout the song, but they are tasteful and often not easy to pick out, making this song an engaging listen. “Blurred” is a catchy single with an eclectic mix of genres.

We played a lot for many years and also had some good response from international labels at some point, but still we were too young and maybe not strong enough to face the difficulties you always find on your path as a musician. Metal has always been a niche everywhere, but in Italy the situation was (and actually is) pretty bad, for all subcultures o
