Album Notes
The Ecstatic have been compared to The Fray, Owl City, and strong female lead performers such as Kelly Clarkson and Pink. Their debut EP titled 'The Hot Mess EP' (released June 2013) combines pop, rock, and elements of indie music to create a listening experience that draws listeners into the songs with catchy melodies and memorable lyrics. From the electronic vibe of the title track Hot Mess, the over-driving guitars on the bonus track 'Rainstorm', to the clean acoustic backbone of their track 'Stop the Breathing' - The Ecstatic capture the true essence of their songwriting craft on this EP with an emphasis on meaningful words over well crafted sounds.

At first glance, there is something unassuming about this particular group of people. They look like average 20-somethings. They wear skinny jeans and converse sneakers. They exude just the right amount of maturity one would expect from a group their age. Upon closer inspection, there is a real sense of honesty and enthusiasm when you hear them speak about their work.

They call themselves ‘The Ecstatic’. They are a five piece band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They know what it’s like to experience the highs and lows of being in the music business, the struggles of being close friends who work together, and the difficulties of being musicians in an industry that is known for being unforgiving. “We do struggle in this business like so many other independent artists. There’s no other word to describe it. But we also love that the struggle pushes us and challenges us to be better musicians, business people, and friends. At the end of the day, after all is said and done – the backbone of who we are remains the same: we’re friends who make music together.” That’s a direct quote from Laurie Stewart, The Ecstatic’s principal song writer and drummer.

The Ecstatic create a high energy and captivating stage show right before your eyes. Their unique and catchy brand of pop-rock-indie music is a mix of The Fray, Owl City, and Kelly Clarkson, but to put a finger on their exact style is too difficult. You have to experience them in the flesh to get a real sense of what they’re about. One thing is for certain, The Ecstatic are on the threshold of greatness. This band is the real deal; they are the performance artists that epitomize the future face of Canadian pop-rock. Watch it happen - it’s going to be an incredible ride.
