Four years ago, Electric Guest contributed to making 2012 a better year with their fresh debut album “Mondo”; a lighthearted release that was quite relevant in a period of deep crisis. Since then, we almost forgot the band and the catchiness of their single “This Head I Hold”. Here is a real booster injection: Electric Guest are back with “Dear To Me“, the first song from their long-awaited sophomore album, due in early 2017 via Because/Downtown.
“Dear To Me” was self-produced and recorded in Los Angeles. Even if it still keeps these vintage 70’s and 80’s vibes that were already present in their first release, the single seems to abandon the “over-produced” feelings that some people were reproaching them on their Danger Mouse-produced debut. The track is bare, abandons a part of embellishment [that was never a problem for us as it was beautifully executed], and simply sounds more authentic while not taking too much distance from their original soulful synth-pop style.
