Electric Acid: II

Here’s what I sincerely believe. Never before has the classic rock sound been so sought after by so many bands. Just why is that? Bands like Motorpsycho, Sienna Root, Blues Pills, Greta Van Fleet, Tame Impala, Purson, and so many more, take those tried and true sounds from the ‘70s in one form or another and shape them into their own musical concoctions. Maybe it’s because the music of the ‘70s is just so damn good.

This leads us to the German band Electric Acid which formed in 2016. The following year they released a two song self-titled EP and have now come out with the follow up simply titled II. Again it’s an EP, this time containing three tracks and around seventeen minutes of music. The first track “The Lights of Accra” harkens to the sounds of Deep Purple with the organ and guitar imprinting indelible riffs in your mind. The riff progressions during the chorus had me thinking of Blue Oyster Cult. If that wasn’t enough female vocalist Annett gives a very nice performance, her laid back style not imposing but ideally rooted in the band’s style. On the hard driving “Rock ‘n Roll City” the band stretches out over nine minutes with its blend of chugging guitar riffs and huge organ accents. When the heaviness morphs into a quieter and trippier soundscape Led Zeppelin came to mind. Then it’s back to that heavy ‘70s influenced groove. This one is a true feast for the ears. Fuzzed out organ and guitar with some tricky tempo changes thrown in for good measure begin “A Fatalistic Life”, another hard rocker.

Electric Acid is a band with a great future ahead. I can’t wait to hear what they do with a full length release. Released on Calygram Records.
