Electric High sure can get the ball rolling. Their anthemic rock sound is famous around indie rock playlists now. Inspired by the best of the 70s and 80s, they bring a hint of alt-rock as well. Their singles and albums are widely regarded as some of the best produced work in any playlist. This is their latest single, Crooks.
The moment this song opened, I could only think of Crank. The Jason Statham action movie has a great scene which would be fitting with this song. The thumping sound is sure to get the crowd going. In a way, you feel like you’re singing a sea shanty, complete with some psychedelic, melting guitar instrumentals going around in the background. At 0:25, the guitar and percussion kicks in, building some intense anticipation. The riff is one of my favourite from them, second only to maybe Rough Diamond. This song is sure to climb the charts of their charismatic leather dance fests. You can practically hear the crowd humming and singing the opening and verse section of the song. Production is top-shelf as usual from the band, and there’s more than one reason to get a patch of this band sewn to your jacket. Celebrate these crooks.
Their singles like Waiting with a Gun and Reproducing Man have become big hits. Electric High is known for some electrifying performances (which their name suggests). You can listen to the single and follow them for this action packed track, and many more to come soon!
