Single Review: LOC – Ecstasy

by Orla Brady

Leeds-based synth-pop artist LOC is due to release his new single Ecstasy at the end of May, and it will certainly be worth the wait.

LOC has been working on producing and creating tracks since 2017, however this year has seen his music spread to wider audiences. His single Worthy was released at the beginning of the year and was played on BBC Music Introducing in West Yorkshire.

His second single of the year, Ecstasy, reveals that, even in the four short months since the release of Worthy, LOC has elevated his sound and grows stronger with each new song.

Ecstasy features a melange of genres, which complement each other and flow together extremely well.  The track opens with a prominent synth-pop sound. However, this is soon built upon, with elements of pop, indie and disco injected into the mix. LOC’s smooth vocals travel alongside, and tie together, this sonic fusion of genre and sound.

Although Ecstasy features elements of synth-pop and electronica, it presents a modern twist on this through the inclusion of other genres. It not only highlights LOC’s ability as a musician, but also as a song writer and producer. Definitely not a track to be missed.
