My good friends in Ego Likeness are about to head out on an east coast tour for a few weeks, and if you have the chance you should definitely go see them. They’re not a “political” band, but all of their songs have meaning. This is what I love about the goth scene, at its best; although the music is danceable, it actually says something. For Ego, expect songs about self-empowerment, the majesty and beauty of science, acknowledging and recovering from trauma. Plus, it’s just damn good music.
I’ve been on stage with Ego Likeness before, as a drummer, which was one of the most fun things I ever did done. But anyway, yeah. Do yourself a favor and go see them live. Even though their music is mostly electronic, they really do put on a fine, fine show.
