We’re glad to announce that Bergen, Norway-based rock band Electric High have released a new single, entitled “Sun.”
Electric High are PV Staff (lead vocals), Olav Iversen (lead vocals), Marius Mørch (guitars), Einride Torvik (bass), and Tor Bjarne Bjelland (drums) –all hailing from other bands, including Sahg, Faith Circus, and Emmerhoff & The Melancholy Babies. Influenced by artists such as Wolfmother, Aerosmith, and Black Sabbath, Electric High play a high-voltage style of rock that features two lead singers!
Prior to their latest single, Electric High have released several singles earlier this year, including “Go Easy on My Heart” (for which you can read our review here), “Trembling Bones” (for which you can read our review here), and “Fire!” (for which you can read our review here). Listeners can also expect many more releases from Electric High throughout 2021.
The band’s latest single, “Sun,” was recorded in Solslottet Studio, Bergen, Norway, and was produced by Iver Sandøy. Describing the inspiration behind the track, the band writes, “Needing some power songs with high energy, we wrote SUN…..of course, on a hot sunny day. But it´s actually more a song about “missing the sun”. We live in Bergen, Norway….and it´s actually one of the most rainy cities in the world! No kidding! It rains a lot! Sun is what we need….although this summer has been perfect and sunny. 😉 The song became the bands favorite, and will definitely be the kick off first song on our next gig!”
“Sun” begins with the pounding rhythms of double kick drums, before a pick-sliding distorted guitar signals the start of the track’s power-charged opening riff and dynamic bassline. During the first verse, dual vocalists PV Staff and Olav Iverson battle as they tell the story of a ruler who longs to see the sun, while imprisoned for seven years by his citizens. After the track’s catchy and memorable chorus, Marius Mørch’s impressive guitar soloing raises “Sun” to new heights, sustained by the equally exciting rhythms of Einride Torvikand’s bass playing and Tor Bjarne Bjelland’s drumming.
At the same time that “Sun” recalls bands such as Motörhead, Deep Purple and The Who, Electric High’s uniquely high-voltage rock ‘n’ roll brings their retro sound to another level. Needless to say, “Sun” is quite an enjoyable listen, once again demonstrating Electric High’s brilliant songwriting and excellent musicianship; I would highly recommend this track to fans of hard rock.
