Eric Cross I did not see this album coming. A welcome surprise for sure. I'm feeling the added weight of the productions. Heavier beats, touches of trap, footwork and contemporary styles really give a great backdrop to the vocals and lyrics. 2 steps ahead for this group. One of the top albums of 2016. Of the moment. Favorite track: March ft. Deva Mahal.

F. David These guys have a wonderful new take on soul music. Not only that, it's a beautifully crafted and well produced album. Songs you haven't heard before but couldn't live without. Favorite track: Go Slow.

about

Electric Wire Hustle return with a third studio album, The 11th Sky...

Expanding on their psychedelic-soul sound, The 11th Sky continues the surreal storytelling of last years Aeons EP, which also featured Kimbra and Deva Mahal on vocals. The brand new album is described as “David Lynch meets Motown” by frontman and producer Mara TK, and indeed, a sense of the otherworldly is present here within EWH’s layered electronic production and Mara’s soaring vocals. Tracks like “Go Slow” walk into the genre-fog amongst drum machines and synthesizers. Meanwhile “I Light A Candle” with it’s piano, chopped vocal samples, towering strings and 808s strikes right at the heart of soul music.

Electric Wire Hustle’s last album ‘Love Can Prevail’ found support from The New York Times, BBC Radio and Wax Poetics, and won “Best Electronic Album” at the New Zealand Music Awards, continuing a track record of critical acclaim that started with their debut self-titled album. The 11th Sky is due out on September 30th on LP, CD and digital via Bastard Jazz Recordings (World) and Loop Recordings (New Zealand).
