We at MTA are very happy to reveal our new collaboration with rock legends Electric Boys, who are now joining the MTA family and who can already be booked for concerts! The band will be part of MTA's new under-label MTA Rocks.
The band is much loved for its distinctive and eccentric style of music that already left a deep impression on us in 1989 when the debut album "Funk – O Metal Carpet Ride" was released.
Now, the Electric Boys are up to date again with their seventh album "Ups!de Down" where they continue to develop their unique fusion of musical styles to make something of their very, very unique sound.
Electric Boys members are Conny Bloom on guitar and vocals, Andy Christell on bass, 'Slim 'Martin Thomander on guitar and Jolle Atlagic playing drums on the album, as the band's original drummer Niclas Sigevall – still a large part of the band – could not leave LA due to the pandemic.
Reflecting the turbulent times of the past two years, the album was spontaneously and organically shaped into a concept album that addresses adversity and fights the human fighting spirit and the ability to survive even the most difficult situations to find hope and victory in the current circumstances of life.
Overall, the album harnesses the collective consciousness of 2020, while taking advantage of a variety of influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Bowie, 50's Rock and Roll, late Beatles and even Sisters of Mercy.
Probably the band's latest album is a little less funky than any of the band's previous material, but it's no less eclectic and provides a strong cocktail that reflects the history of rock and roll and the light and darkness of life. "You can see the light at the end of the tunnel rather than just the runaway train" in songs like "This Is Not The End." When things are so big and seem to be out of control, you can turn it around and gain control by letting it go. The free thinking and rebellious spirit of the band are alive and well in this latest album and belief in the power of music's message and its ability to change the world. People often mention to the band that Electric Boys songs have changed their lives and inspired them to take up instruments.
The band says:
"What do you do when a pandemic knocks on the door? Stopping didn't feel like an option for us, the other way was to stay creative. It ended with a new album that became both rawer and more experimental than the last. This is a kind of Electric Boys 2021 update." Electric Boys is booked by Hilda Sandgren email@example.com
