Electric Touch Electric (e-lec-tric) – adjective; thrilling, exciting, stirring Touch (tuh-ch) – verb; to affect with feeling or emotion Electric Touch (e-lec-tric tuh-ch) – noun; Incendiary rock band originating in Austin, Texas fusing classic and contemporary influences resulting in a high energy live show and arena-ready anthems. Their sound is often likened to Island Records label mates The Killers, along with Kings Of Leon, but with members hailing from both sides of the Atlantic this exciting 5-piece delivers a unique brand of British-American Rock music. A bulletproof rhythm section is the backbone of the band delivering pounding beats big enough to fill a stadium punctuated by killer bass lines. Dynamic guitars bring angular melodies refreshing in simplicity one moment then exploding into frenzied fury the next. Vocal hooks and harmonies delivered like an urgent call to arms scream “The future is now”. The songs are essentially tales of Ordinary Life in Glorious Technicolor. The stories are about Love and the human condition, with poetic lyrics depicting the many sides human condition is all its fortune, fickle and flaws Electric Touch debuted at number one on FMQB Radio with their first single, snagged the Number 1 spot on Amazon.com on the day of release with another, and have been invited to support Bon Jovi, The Bravery, The Fratellis, Airborne Toxic Event and Phantom Planet. They are set to take the world on in 2011 with an appearance at the Coachella Festival in April followed by a new album produced by Grammy nominated Producer of the Year Howard Benson on Island Records.
