Electric Touch


Recommended Posts

Electric Touch - One of my 2 favorite bands at Lollapalooza and now on tour with The Fratellis. Their single "Love In Our Hearts" is so damn catchy - and their album just came out last week - so its worth checking out. The lead singer from England (london?) and the guys from austin tx are a great combination.


Electric (e-lec-tric) - adjective; thrilling, exciting, stirring

Touch (tuh-ch) - verb; to affect with feeling or emotion



Stick an Englishman in a band with three true blue Texans and you're bound to come up with something pretty damn original.


Electric Touch wowed crowds at SXSW, Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and are booked to appear at Monolith, ACL and V festivals. But they're not taking their early successes for granted. At the end of the day, Electric Touch is all about the music: the adrenaline release, that intoxicating feeling that only a killer rock song can give you.


"When people come to see us play, we want them to leave their troubles at the door. Their worries will still be there tomorrow, but for right now, let's get together and have a good time."


Consider that an invitation.


Their video diary from Chicago. Their other one is great too on their way to bonaroo.

Im in love with this band. A pic of Louis and Shane with me. And I've never felt so short in my life. Shane and Ross are beyond friendly and we talked for awhile. Some chick was all over Louis so he was a bit distracted and Chris was outside smoking most the time. But they were all really cool and signed a poster for me, even after I complained that their shirt prices were way too high! :) I think Shane didn't care so much because I told him he was easily one of my two favorite bands at Lollapalooze. Its official - Im in love! - And cant wait to check out your interview.


- a few things to note - Toronto was their first show out of the states at Vfest. Also - they never even did a proper tour (as in having to drive around the states for awhile) but immediately got hooked up with The Fratellis. They might be back here for CMJ. And I sound like the total fan girl.




and my video for "Give Me A Sign". The sound sucks and I just love their choreographed guitar moves :)
