This is one band you cannot afford to miss in 2015, and with new album ‘Enduring Days You Will Overcome’ on the way, you won’t have to. Their style, summed up by five times AP columnist of the year Nick Desriso as ‘synthy, melancholic etherealism’, is truly setting them apart on their route to the top of the industry.
Influenced by the new wave likes of The Cure and Joy Division, but with a twisted contemporary approach, Electric Litany have created a timeless album against the odds. Working on a shoestring budget and helped over the line by fans, the LP is a triumph. To the band the music represents both the struggle as a band to produce the release, as well as the oppression of society by the political elite.
You can get a feel for the album from the track ‘Silence’:
Having already toured with or supported the likes of Interpol, Alan Parsons, British Sea Power and soon Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, most of whom they now count among their ever growing and dedicated fan base, it’s very easy to see Electric Litany breaking out of their cult status to mainstream success very soon.
