Whilst it is incredibly tough to nail Ecca Vandal down to just one genre there is one core element to her music that is undeniable, that being her raw, unbridled energy. Throughout her debut self titled album this trend continues.

During the opening half of the record Vandal dips her toes into 90s-esque pop-rock, even occasionally verging on punk. As the album progresses Vandal begins weaving hip-hop elements with dark electronica.

Whilst this composition leaves the record feeling like it is split into two halves each is immaculately produced and both are incredibly compelling in their own right.

The standout tracks are Price Of Living, End Of Time and finally Cassettes, Lies & Videotapes.
