Cities is the Limited Edition debut EP from Icelandic duo, Ekki Hugsa. Their sounds orientate within hypnotic rhythm and a dark cinematic fusion of hip-hop and funk beats, soulful melodies, dub grooves, and choice samples. This is their beat-homage to Cities in the North.
“I have been playing Eternal guitars for years now, and I am still wowed at how good they sound every gig. There is something really special about a custom built guitar that delivers at such a high standard”
