New Band of The Day- Electric Guest

Share This Article:

Los Angeles duo Electric Guest's funky pop music has a strong retro feel with enough bravado to take them to the very top.

Front-man Asa Taccone’s family are no strangers to the limelight either- his brother Jorma is one third of comedy outfit Lonely Island, with showmanship clearly coming natural to the Taccones.

Electric Guest are seen at their best in ‘This Head That I Hold’, an effortlessly addictive piano led track that shows strong 60’s Motown influences. Taccone’s falsetto vocals complement the twinkling piano, while Matthew Compton’s drums add the two tapping groove that makes the song destined for major attention.

Another standout track from the band is ‘The Bait’, a funky, bouncy electronic song with a hook filled chorus in which Taccone shows off his vocal prowess once more. The bands trademark retro feel is present here yet again, and the song would not sound out of place gracing the charts in the 70’s.

Whether or not you find Electric Guest’s soulful retro sound cheesy, it cannot be denied that the band perform with such a swagger that it will come as no surprise if they become one of America’s next big things.
