ELECTRIC RIVER - "The cold voice of tragedy cannot defeat you!"
If any band of the last few years deserves to have their 15 Minutes, that band is Electric River. It's about time their stadium sized anthems were taken from the clubs'n'pubs in which they've been tirelessly playing for the last four years and into larger venues. If there's any justice in an unjust world then Electric Rivers new album should see them kick the doors down and burst onto these stages with their street smart songs of hardship, hope, pain and positivity. Any one looking for a British Gaslight Anthem or to hear what a scuffle between The Clash and Big Country sounds like should look no further than Electric River.
Their new 2 track single In Your Name/32 is out on 31st March. Its a beefy, raw, raucous but polished blast of Rock'n'Roll. The album The Faith And Patience is due out around May on Cadiz Music, and if it's anything like this single and their previous releases it will be a corker!
