Very few artists have achieved the technical uniqueness of Elektragaaz. Comprised of Netherlands-based electronic composer/songwriter Poppo Redband (or just Redband for short) and a slew of guests/contributors, Elektragaaz‘s dynamic and versatile signature sound began laying down its foundation in 2017 and began hitting the ground running since its inception. Even though there is a big level of mystery surrounding primary project leader Redband, Elektragaaz‘s atmospheric textures are laid down diligently in epic proportions on their debut EP “The Synaesthetic Picture Show Now Playing Part 1”.
This six-track juggernaut is likely unlike anything you’ve ever heard when it comes to style and composure. Blasting into an upbeat tempo with opening track “Cabin Fever”, this record immediately launches into an atmospheric assault that balances style and execution. The attentiveness to detail is very apparent from the start and continues through the track’s duration with a vast array of instrumental choices and melodic measures. This opener is highly effective and really delves deeply into the musicianship factors that Elektragaaz shows no shortage of. Another highlight of this album is the song “She Walks It Like She Talks It” which also incorporates dynamic tempos but brings the levels of uniqueness in a slightly different effective direction. But one song that has an anthemic quality is closing track “Dancin’ With The Queen of Hearts” which stylistically is more ballad-like but maintains a type of intricacy that focuses more on the distinction of energy as opposed to the more in-your-face technical touches this EP has plenty of. This track is definitely a standout of its calibre and further encapsulates the distinct uniqueness that is heard throughout the runtime of this EP and really showcases the artistic merit of this project in several angles.
This EP is also a record that has staying power – the power to stay with you even long after it’s over, and will undoubtedly entice you to dive deeper into the Elektragaaz discography and career altogether. This EP is available now on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and several other digital music streaming platforms. This is a record you need to hear to believe.
