Electric Retro Spectrum
LOUD, DIY and FIERCE, like a mantra, three words that summarise Electric Retro Spectrum.
Formed in Paris France, illustrated by the festival BarsEnTrans as “A sound between two giant fuzz pedals and a rain of reverb, invoking the great 70’s stoner in a dark black mass…” .
The band’s been playing live non-stop for 2 years, searching for a new sound, before recording their latest ep: SUB-URBAN (auto-recorded in 5 days in a kitchen in the Parisian suburbs by the drummer Pierre Dessauny, former sound engineer at la méchanique ondulatoire).
Very hands-on, the band nearly makes everything themselves, from their screaming Cabs to their tortured guitars, even the merch (100% hand-drawn shirts). After touring in the US ( Echo fest in Detroit, Fort Wayne, Cake shop manhattan, Aviv Brooklyn ) and playing with some amazing bands ( wand, deap valley, the mirrors, the telescopes, kagoule, Pc Worship etc..) they developed their own trance on stage carried by a deep haunted voice. Often described as a mix of Pj Harvey, The Black Angels, and Sonic Youth.
