TUNE Electric Guest - Under The Gun
Rapidly building momentum in the States following major television appearances on David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon and stunning sets at festivals including SXSW and CMJ, Electric Guest are set to introduce themselves to the UK with the December 3rd release of the ‘Holiday’ EP. Produced by Electric Guest vocalist Asa Taccone with producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, Broken Bells), the EP demonstrates Electric Guest’s highly eclectic sound. Lead track ‘Under The Gun’ falls somewhere between a contemporary take on the classic Motown sound and slickly-crafted 80s pop topped by the sweet soul of Taccone’s vocals, while the melancholic ‘Holiday’ feels like a cocktail of electro-pop and garage band energy. The EP is completed with two acoustic performances of songs which feature on their debut album ‘Mondo’: their breakthrough Stateside hit ‘This Head I Hold’ which has sold over 100,000 copies and ‘Awake’. ‘Mondo’ is currently available digitally and will receive a full UK release next year. Having started the year by being named as one of MTV’s Artists To Watch in the US, Electric Guest recently completed a tour of France with The Vaccines and are making plans to continue to build their profile in the UK. They’re currently planning a series of London shows and will also release a second single, ‘The Bait’, early in 2013.
