Tour name: ELECTRIC GUEST @ THE RUBY LOUNGE
It’s no surprise that Electric Guest’s Stateside profile is accelerating towards mainstream recognition following a succession of positive reviews and major television appearances on David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon.
Take the duo’s breakthrough single This Head I Hold as evidence; with Asa Taccone’s sweet, soul-infused falsetto, a rhythm steeped in classic, up-tempo Motown and a hook that barely requires a full play before it burrows into your subconscious, it’s as immediately familiar as a greeting from an old-friend. And while their debut album Mondo switches genres with blatant disregard for simple categorisation, there’s an almost old-fashioned love of melody running throughout. Add the production nous of Danger Mouse –contemporary ingenuity rooted within pop’s most essential and traditional attributes – and it’s clear why the Electric Guest package is so immediately enticing to such a wide audience.
