While the music industry is still being put through the mill, WDFD Records continue to look forward and we are thrilled to announce that they have added Hertfordshire hard rockers Electric Black to their roster.
Electric Black may be a new name to you, they may have only formed in 2018, but they are one of the most exciting and dynamic bands to hit the scene in recent years. Drawing influence from the likes of Bad Company, Rival Sons, and Black Stone Cherry, Electric Black combine anthemic riffs, soaring vocals, and a melodic rhythm section with lyrics that take on difficult topics. The emotion conveyed in the both the music and lyrics create a truly immersive experience.
WDFD’s Keith Lamley said “From the moment I saw the ‘Love is a Light (For the Lost)’ video, I was hooked on Electric Black. They make a huge melodic sound, look good and they turned out to be smashing guys when we spoke to them. Simply cannot wait to bring their new material to you, and to see what we can help them achieve. Check them out!“
Vocalist Ali said, “Electric Black are very proud to be joining the WDFD family; a label with its artists at its core. We’re excited to work with an experienced music industry team to hopefully get our artistic endeavours to the next level!”
Electric Black have clocked up over 150 shows nationwide since their formation, building a strong and dedicated fanbase. Despite a pandemic foiling their plans, four tracks from ‘The Calm Before’ have been released as singles, with the most recent, ‘Not Afraid To Die’ receiving airplay on Planet Rock’s New Rock Show.
