Ecca Vandal has returned with her third single 'Father Hu$$la', which premiered on triple j Goodnights. It also premiered online via SPIN, who describe the track as “a loud, declarative statement of intent… in no uncertain terms, it’s impossible to turn away from Ecca Vandal once she starts up.” The badass tune features fine use of her smooth vocals as well as dominating and bold percussion, which gives the tune a whole other dimension. 'Father Hu$$la' is bound to follow in the same successful footsteps as previous singles 'White Flag' and 'Battle Royal. The track was produced by Ecca Vandal and Kidnot and mixed by Hadyn Buxton.
The release of 'Father Hu$$la' adds to the massive year she has already had, including a killer set at Splendour In The Grass last month, shows around the country (including a support slot on Gang of Youths tour earlier in the year) her signing with Dew Process in Australia, and Island Records in the UK. We can't wait to see what she has planned next!
