about

The King Electric self titled debut LP is a sexy, cinematic, future-retro funk-disco affair, with a mildly pensive edge, and a warm, dub-infused psycadelic aura. The record was born over a period of 4 intense years, in multiple studios scattered around the globe. Typical production sessions included psilocybin driven tape experiments, b-film screenings and sampling, as well as campfires. They were often punctuated with alco blackouts, and occasionally with a healthy bar fight.

The track selection on the LP was put together for movie like cohesion and flow and it really plays like a Felini acid freak show. The record's palette includes analogue synths, liquid guitars, film samples, breathy vocals, and panoramic strings, which further amplify the big screen audio cinematic to full effect. The arrangements remain tricky throughout, the song structures progressive, but neither ever interferes with the record's effortless dancefloor inclination. If anything, it makes for great repeat listening.

In the words of the creators: "We're just a couple of idiots on the path to enlightenment. The tracks are just other examples of our definition of pop music. We started because we wanted to see how far we could go with that. Our Album will be a pocket full of quotations of our lives and all the music we love." (Interview: Radio Altroverso, Italy)

If you listen closely enough, you'll hear it all: pinball machines, Deep Throat, a bit of early Polanski and Lalo Schifrin, backwoods campfire, airport stop overs, the roar of big cities and of course fearless use of hedonistic hook lines, spiced up with citations from the voluptuous treasure trove of the musical past and present....you get the picture?

about

King Electric: Peter Hartwig | Chris Isepp.

Needless to say, we are not talking about the concept of pop music as propagated by the global "energy radio stations". Pop is conceived as a declaration of faith in songs with a fearless use of hedonistic hook lines, spiced up with citations from the voluptuous treasure trove of the musical past.

We're just two idiots on the way to enlightenment:]

alright,
we're gonna lose this game.
no rights, no wrongs
our love has gone.

keep moving on,
you gotta prove me wrong,
but your love has turn to hate.
i gave you all of my heart,
and now you tear apart
that's all i have to say.

am i right, am i wrong?
and what is this supposed to be?
i know you're far away
i think we're losing the way.

are you paralyzed,
for it is the last goodbye.
we could find a better way,
before we're fall from grace.

are you paralyzed,
for it is the last goodbye.
we could find a better way,
before we're fall from grace.

my dreams have flown away
and the plans we made has gone astray.
that's all we leave behind,
and maybe we should say goodbye.

because it's almost too late for us to start again.
love's gone away....

alright baby,
we're gonna lose this game.
no rights, no wrongs
our love has gone.

i wish i have not loved you so,
that makes it very hard to go,
but it seems like this is how it ends,
we're never gonna be the same again.

are you paralyzed,
for it is the last goodbye.
we could find a better way,
before we're falling from grace.

you know you need it and I know you care
oh baby baby but you're spinning out of control
how will you gonna stop yourself?
Track Name: King Electric - Yul Brynner
here come the gunmen
there's nowhere to run and to hide

you better go and drop that shit
and you really have to understand
you've got a little freak in you
but not a penny on your hand
i'm getting you to shut up with my dirty tricks,
cause we and the city we just don't mix
you're just the last of a breed
and it's begining to stink
you have a bullet in your head
before you finish your drink


we're gonna raise some hell
we're really gonna raise some hell
your're a clone of my flesh and bone
and you silver bullets can not cut me down
Track Name: King Electric - The Way You Feel Inside (Campfire Mix)
you never never never can disguise
the way you feel inside

take the tings and get some more
just find yourself open the door
take the tings and get some more

you never never never can disguise
the way you feel inside
Track Name: King Electric - Out Of Reach
out of reach
warm summerbreeze blows so endlessly
when the season change
i still remain the same

i'm searching for what is gone
but i never reached the end
i have to travel on
you know i wont go
because i dont wanna be alone

you know whe had a thing we called
the people dont understand
warm summerbreeze blows so endlessly

you know whe had a thing we called
the people dont understand
warm summerbreeze blows so endlessly

i'm searching for what is gone
but i never reached the end
i have to travel on
you know i wont go
because i dont wanna be alone

you know whe had a thing we called
the people dont understand
warm summerbreeze blows so endlessly

the morning comes so slow today
i know you're gone and i have to stay
the moon is shining on my face
and it's blinding all my fears away
