It is already next Friday, at 21: 30h, that Electric Man will make a new live appearance through his Facebook page.
From the wear and tear of the experience with bands and an enthusiasm that was not seen by the other elements, Electric Man was born, the personalization of the passion for music, of a “guy who has a thousand ideas all the time and who wants to make them real”, too known as Tito Pires.
It is to Gessicatrip, the last band that Tito Pires joined, that the name of the solo project is due. According to the artist, the theme “Electric Man” is an example of the space for bizarre sound experiences, created in Gessicatrip, adding that “this solo project came as a result of that experience and the name made perfect sense”.
Even in a constant search for new things and without ever focusing on two or three influences, it is possible to feel “a darker side, dark wave, which may have been transmitted by bands like Bauhaus, Siouxsie & the Banshees (of which I recorded a version “Hong Kong Garden”) or the more recent She Wants Revenge, which already mix a more danceable side that also accompanies me ”.
The Portuguese music scene has always been closely monitored, through names such as Mão Morta, X-Wife, Linda Martini, Parkinsons, among many others…
New single: “Much More Space”
“Much More Space”, Electric Man’s most recent single, is according to Tito Pires, the result of “a series of synergies that were created almost spontaneously.
Thanks to a series of talented friends, it was possible to row in the same direction in a long, laborious, but also delicious process. In the words of the musician, “Between the mixing and mastering of Pedro Lourenço who knew how to bring some freshness to the theme, production and realization of Plata o Plomo that created the entire film, to the actors and extras who participated in it, the participation of Suspiria Franklyn, from the late Les Baton Rouge, everything was very good! ”.
Here you can hear electro rock with guitars overhead, in an explosion of dark and contagious energy. Inspired by this same energy, the video clip that accompanies the theme is a true short film from the duo of Brazilian filmmakers Filipe Mello and Maurício Carvalho, revealing a cruel portrait between the potential of current technology and a darker human side.
