Stockholm based Emil & The Ecstatics is nowadays a well-known name
on the european roots scene. After countless festivals, clubs, and three
full-length albums, the band has proved to be a force to reckon with.
Apart from the many great album reviews, The Ecstatics put a great effort
in what they do best - live shows. This have been confirmed by many ecstatic
audiences all over Europe. This, their third album “Bit By Bit”,
consists of a number of original tunes in the midlands of blues &
soul music without being to conservative for that matter. Take a trip
to Hawaii in “The Hula” or perhaps a short visit to a 60´s
horror screening in “The Spook”. Or what about a trip down
“Highway 4”, Swedens own Chitlin Circuit? Get ready for a
cruel mix of roots music!"
