Electric Black is a British rock quartet from North Hertfordshire, taking influence from Bad Company, Jet, Rival Sons, and Black Stone Cherry amongst other hard-rock legends. Formed in 2018, Electric Black are Alistair Shiach on lead vocals & rhythm guitar, Jonny Bryant on lead guitar & backing vocals, Ryan Trotman on bass & backing vocals and Matt Butler on Drums.
Electric Black’s material is created to feel euphoric; powerful anthems for the highway with loud guitars, fat-bottomed rhythm, clear and soaring lead vocals, and layered backing harmonies blended for delicate, melodic textures amongst instrumental drive. Lyrically, the tracks deal with many human relatable topics; the desire to better oneself, ambition, failure, sexual and emotional crossovers, and the angst of love.
Ali and Jonny had played together previously for a few years, were writing album material and performing (out of necessity) as a 2 piece after disbanding their previous project. Matt and Ryan became available moving on from their former band; a ready formed solid rhythm section... some things just fall together beautifully. The current line-up has been together since May 2018. They planned to get the album recorded and hit the ground running. The debut album ‘The Calm Before’ was released in November 2019.
Though recent in years, Electric Black are strong in numbers, having gained traction through over 150 live shows nationally throughout clubs, venues, festivals and any stage suitable for the straight-up hard-rock that Electric Black deliver. Having led up to the release of their debut album ‘The Calm Before’ on the live circuit, Electric Black are taking to the digital circuit with the release of ‘Love Is A Light’, their lead-track and debut official music video injecting some much needed musical uplift in times of worldwide pandemic.
Electric Black's debut album ‘The Calm Before’ is available via all reputable platforms.
