Well cot damn, look what’s just arrived.
After a painfully long absence from releasing new music, New Zealand’s finest soul adventurers Electric Wire Hustle finally answer our calls and deliver a brand new track titled ‘Numbers and Steel’…
And it’s with great pleasure (and relief) that, even with a slight rearrangement in band members (Mara and Taay are now joined by drummer Mario Crew & bassist Johnny Lawrence), they’ve returned to us with a sound that evolves further than what they left us with in 2010, yet rings warmly familiar. Their musical impressions and soulful inflictions are still very much present, only now the sound is further formed and refreshingly in contemporary way.
True story: if it wasn’t for EWH and a chance encounter with them back in 2010 at Red Bull Studios London (where we filmed them), we would have never have created the Rehearsal Rooms series, which eventually led us to film some truly incredible artists including Raphael Saadiq, Jessie Ware, Emeli Sande, A$AP Rocky, Jamie Woon and loads more.
