[picture: 'electricity' by damien gosset] some call it nu hammer, others call it dreamwave, the original re-inventors call it future disco. i am not satisfied with any of those terms, so i'll probably have to stick to 'dreamy 80s disco-flavoured new wave' forever. anyway, all of those apply to los electricos from brooklyn.
their songs feature (bass) guitars, vintage synthesizers and lots of melancholy and as i am already slightly drunk, i can't say anything more elaborated but the pure truth: they are wonderful.
while preparing this write-up, i kept listening to 'interstellar romance' by los electricos and it's so damn catchy that it could really need a singer. and then i imagined that it probably has a singer and he is just at a loss for words. (sounds like a great concept for a live show, no? well, if anyone pulls this off soon, you know who invented it.)
anyway, here are two tunes from their ep 'waiting to be dead' that are just waiting for you to play them on your headphones everywhere you go:
los electricos - interstellar romance
los electricos - fang
you can pick up the whole ep over at palms out sounds, posted by my future ex-husband joee irwin. what you can't get over there is a track from los electricos' upcoming next ep 'come with me or stay here and die'. listen and learn (the silent singer will be off stage by the time they play this out).
los electricos - at home in exile
so hurry up and become a los electricos myspace friend before everyone else does!
