Meet The Electro Group
:: Electro Group - Lifter ::
Let me bounce this off of you. Ever read online mail order catalogs to discover new bands, and end up buying something just from the description? Are you more likely to take a chance when it's a 7"? If you answered yes to those, you and I got the same disease. Fortunately for me, more times than not, luck and instinct couple harmoniously and I end up finding a new band to love. This is most certainly the case with Electro Group. I don't remember what the blurb at Midheaven said about this single, but between it and the cover art I was compelled to purchase it. Good thing too, they are now one of my favorite bands.
Electro Group takes the majestic chord changes of shoegaze and supercharges them in a way I haven't really heard since the days of Swervedriver. In addition to making a beautiful noise, they are really nice guys. I finally got to see them play live a while back, and the frontman Tim overheard me talking to someone about them. He came over and introduced himself, and we talked music and guitars pretty much until he had to go up and play. If you live in Northern California, I encourage you to see them live, they blister and bloom a roomful of gorgeous sounds. If you like what you heard here, you can get pretty much all of their catalog, including this great 7", at their excellent hometown store, tonevendor.
