Well, for those of you who are familiar with our boys Electric Empire the news doesn’t get much better – a brand new track called CHANGIN up for free download, a soon to be released EP also entitled CHANGIN available for pre-order next month, and almost 2 full months of live shows across Europe & Australia kicking off in October!
Electric Empire is Dennis Dowlut, Jason Heerah, Aaron Mendoza and Simon Olsen – four incredible multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, songwriters and entertainers hailing from Sydney & Melbourne. With their self-titled and self-funded debut album selling over 40,000 copies right across the globe, these boys are certainly no strangers to success; recently touring with successful international artists Mayer Hawthorne, Aloe Blacc and Beverley Knight, as well as appearing at the Glastonbury Music Festival last year.
The EE sound is a rich blend of live instruments, tight & intricate arrangements and driving grooves. A band of singers, their sweet, soulful vocals carry powerfully catchy and often haunting melodies that duck and weave their way through an array of complex yet thoughtful chord changes.
CHANGIN hit #1 on the Triple J Unearthed charts just a few days after being released, and the EP which will follow is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated independent Aussie releases of the year.
If you are a lover and appreciator of first-class musicianship and some seriously sizzling live chops do yourself a big favour and get to know these guys. Head to Triple J Unearthed to grab the latest tune for free, and the EE BandsinTown page for details of all upcoming shows.
