Declaration of War with Electric Discharge Machine - An Interview

Psicodelismo, bublegum, muito Zombies, T Rex e Northern Soul, esses são os ingredientes para a receita sonora dos franceses do Electric Discharge Machine.

Os caras estão no segundo EP, o empolgante e deliciosamente pegajoso Declaration of War, as referências e conexões são evidentes mas não há como negar que os caras deram um ar moderno em tamanha nostalgia.

Viciante! Ah detalhe o final do ep é altamente velvetiano no melhor dos sentidos.
