We’re currently living in an age where ‘pop’ isn’t a dirty word, and this song from EKKAH certainly epitomises the point. It’s a funky, atmospheric and silky smooth number with a crescendo you can’t help but get lost in. ‘Figure It Out’, intentionally or not, seems to channel influences from the latter bit of the 20th century; 70s bassline, 80s groove, 90s smoothness. Influences that it combines perfectly. As well, in a way, this is what you could expect if Haim and Jessie Ware managed to all somehow come together and have a baby that happened to also be a distant relative of MJ and Whitney Houston.
There’s not much out there on the net about these two – namely Rebecca and Rebekah (that’s gonna get confusing some day). But this lack of information makes them all the more intriguing.
