The New Electric, based out of Calgary, Alberta have made a name for themselves this year on Canadian pop radio, reaching heights of: #18 on Hot AC, #26 on CHR (Top 40), and #20 on Main AC.
Since forming in 2014, the band has worked with Kevin ‘Chief’ Zaruk and Jeff Ojeda (of Chief Music Management: Florida Georgia Line, Joey Moi, Dallas Smith, Chris Lane) to put together an undeniable fresh new sound. In the Summer of 2014, The New Electric got together with world-renowned producer Brian Howes (Hedley, Simple Plan, Boys Like Girls) to record their debut EP in sunny Los Angeles. Their breakthrough, catchy sound is sonically inspired by: DNCE, The Weeknd, Maroon 5 & many more.
The New Electric’s debut single Life’s What You Make It caught the attention of Corus Radio’s “Next Big Thing” and Bell Media’s “Future Star” features for the month of October, 2015. This helped propel the song on Canadian Hot AC, Top 40, and Main AC radio, garnering impressive chart positions. To follow their success at radio, The New Electric debuted their new music video on Much Music (M3 & Much Loud). Their follow up single Inside Out was released on February 14th, and the music video premiered on MUCH, M3 & Musique Plus in May. The song is already at #28 on Main AC, as the radio story continues to build.
The band is currently writing and preparing for the release of their debut EP, to be released late 2016, soon after the release of a new single Ride This Feeling (due August 19, 2016).
