The new work from this cunning band is an insidious tune built from a single driving drum groove, sneaking into a sly, blown bass-pumping verse …

… all intertwined with what we love to label as their style trademark: the dually layered lead vocals that in unison give bottom to the voltage throttle!

Piece after piece Electric High has been able to amaze and kidnap us, always in a different way, albeit immediately remaining faithful to a charismatic and compelling imprinting, image, sound, character, so much so that although this is only the fourth release of the band, now we feel to talk about veterans.

After an excellent triptych, a Poseidonic trident that in no uncertain terms was – and we are sure will remain for a long time, an incisive watershed in the indie scene … and beyond – the previous singles Harder To Justify, Reproducing Man, and Waiting With a Gun, are sealed, extended, and crowned in a polyptych with which the Norwegian band closes a historic 2020.

2020 inflicted on us in spite of ourselves the gangrenous and virulent disease of COVID-19, of lockdowns, of the further blow to the entertainment and culture industries. But 2020 also gave us the genesis of brilliantly distinguished new musical realities.

Electric High - Sleeping With The Enemy

Without a doubt, Electric High is one of these. First of all, the amazement came for the cleanliness with which these guys are able to convey their sound while retaining all the distorted and apparently uncontrollable, ergo instinctive matrix of that electrification that seems to have supplanted the blood in their veins.

This ability to consciously direct their music, however, is not strictly a scientific aim, the result of a masterly and sterile work carried out by a wise architect. The creative Pantheon of Electric High spreads with “tentaculous” offshoots, Cthuloid progeny, often soaked in that dark ink caught in folds a little murkier than life.

So without fear of getting their hands dirty, nor of being struck by their own high tensions, these Jupiters could also be ribs shaped by the seed of a fornicating divinity, a hybrid halfway between the Greek God Zeus, the Japanese Raijin, and why not, also with a nail from Egyptian Seth.

However, whether they are myths, legends, demigods, or mere mortals, these guys are masters in grasping the roots and their musical heritage and transshipping it into a new compelling, engaging, and enthralling vision. Here we find a great spark because their intuition and their creativity is juggled with skillful alchemy among the five members of the band, mixing with prudent vibrancy now to evert the spearhead of a phrasing, now to build an empowering launch towards a “gargantuelic” chorus.

The clearest example of the changeability of this kind of interaction a la Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde, which interconnects the five members of the band for this purpose and in ever different ways, comes precisely in that vocal alter ego that erupts from the stratification of the voices of the two. lead singer.

So that feverish feeling, that thrill that rises when you hear the hum of distortion building in the background as the potentiometer rises is the pull that excites you as Electric High’s high voltage discharge gets closer and closer.

The rhapsodic factor is palpable, as genuine as it is biting, but with their strings, they are able to warp space and time, just enough to allow you to have that slightest awareness, just enough to understand that something libidinous in you. it is about to slip first under the skin and then down into the bones.

No frills and drills here. No jokes, neither chatty talk. This is pure ecstatic adrenaline, condensed into the form of music. No counter-claims. Just good, great music.
