Ecstatic Union – Ancient Eyes

Ecstatic Union

Ecstatic Union sound like they have parachuted from the psychedelic 60s! Lead singer and guitarist, Rex Costello, confides “My art reflects a journey of transformation and so I guess I could say that personal transformation, the full-spectrum experience of life, community, nature, beauty, and art-as-life are what greatly influence our work.”

Ecstatic Union’s self-titled sophomore album- set to release in May of 2017 through Lolipop Records– is a bold new venture into their neo-psychedelic nature. The first single off of “Ecstatic Union”, “Ancient Eyes”, encourages its listeners to experience the world in an unfiltered way. Though the single is focused in its melody, “Ancient Eyes” maintains mystery through wandering riffs and soaring harmonies. These dynamics layer the tune’s simple structure with serpentine psychedelia, offering us a truly memorable listening experience. On the development of the song, Costello reveals, “From its inception, this song was primarily constructed around the way the main riff made me feel. It had a kind of ‘magnetic’ sensation to me, like each chord was being pulled into the next. Then the pre-chorus felt like a wave or vortex accumulating energy into its center and then re-dispersing it.”

Ecstatic Union is Rex Costello (lead vocals/guitar), Oliver Hart (2nd guitar/vocals/organ), and Sol (bass/vocals). With many exciting ventures and releases headed their way, follow Ecstatic Union for details on upcoming involvements.
