Named after two of the three syllables their first names share, Rebekah Pennington and Rebecca Wilson are Ekkah, a pop duo from the U.K.
They met in school when they were both 15 years old, and spent five years in the Arcadian Kicks. When that indie rock band split up, Pennington and Wilson opted to continue as Ekkah with a relaxed dancefloor sound inspired by early-'80s pop and R&B. They made their recorded debut in late 2014 with the single "Last Chance to Dance," released on +1 Records' singles-oriented Honeymoon offshoot, and subsequently had their material issued on RCA. "Small Talk," released in 2015, was produced by Tourist, while the following year's "Space Between Us"/"What's Up" was a collaboration with Dâm-Funk. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
