|The MTA staff are very happy to present our new collaboration partner, rock legends Electric Boys, who are now a part of the MTA roster and are available for booking inquiries beginning now. The band will be part of MTA's new sub-label called MTARocks.|
Ever since they emerged in 1989 with their debut album "Funk - O Metal Carpet Ride", the band has been a household name well known for their very unique, eccentric style of music. Electric Boys are back again with their seventh album "Ups!de Down" where they keep exploring their unique fusion of musical styles to create their own sound. Electric Boys consists of Conny Bloom on guitar and vocals, Andy Christell on bass, 'Slim' Martin Thomander on guitar and Jolle Atlagic who plays drums on the album, as the band's original drummer Niclas Sigevall (who is still a big part of the band) could not leave LA due to the pandemic.
The album reflects the last two turbulent years and was shaped spontaneously and organically into a concept album. The album addresses adversity, the human fighting spirit as well as the ability to survive the most difficult situations in order to find hope and victory in the prevailing circumstances of life.
On the whole, the album summarizes the collective consciousness of 2020, while the band blends a variety of influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Bowie, 50's Rock and Roll, the late Beatles and even the Sisters of Mercy.
The band's latest album is probably a little less funky than any of the band's previous material but it's no less eclectic and provides a strong cocktail that reflects the history of rock and roll as well as the light and the darkness of life. "You can see the light at the end of the tunnel rather than just the running train" in songs like "This Is Not The End". When things are so big and seem out of control, you can turn it around and gain control by letting it go. The band's free thinking and rebellious spirit is alive and well on this latest album and the belief in the power of music's message and its ability to change the world.Electric Boys have often been told by fans that their songs have changed their lives and inspired them to pick up their instruments.
The band states:
“What do you do when a pandemic knocks on your door? Stopping was not an option for us. The only way was to stay creative so we ended up with a new record which turned out to be both more raw and more experimental than the previous one. This is the Electric Boys 2021 update. ”
