About The New Electric
Calgary, Alberta’s 2016 YYC Awards “Group Of The Year”, The New Electric, has seen nothing but success since the release of their debut single, Life’s What You Make It; Canadian Pop Radio’s #26 most played song of 2016. The hit song took off, and saw impressive chart heights of: #18 on Hot AC, #26 on CHR (Top 40), and #28 on Main AC. The single was recently nominated at the 2017 Canadian Radio Music Awards for Best New Group: Mainstream AC. Their unique sound has also garnered over 760,000 collective streams on Spotify, proving that 2016 was just a taste of the good times ahead for The New Electric.
It all started in the Summer of 2014, when the band started recording with world- renowned producer, Brian Howes (Simple Plan, Hedley, Skillet, Mother Mother) to create an EP that was inspired by the good vibes in Los Angeles, California. The debut EP, Living Loud was released on October 28, 2016, just before the band went on to support Backstreet Boy – Nick Carter, on a 3-week Cross-Canada tour.
“We are blown away by how much our fans love our music. It’s crazy to think how much time, passion and fun went into making these songs… and now the world gets to hear them. The fans have been so patient and we are so thankful that they’re here to listen!” – Kyle McKearney (Lead Singer)
The leading track from the EP, Ride This Feeling, was recorded with producer Ryan Stewart (Carly Ray Jepsen, Victoria Duffield, Owl City), who recently finished working on The New Electric’s newest release, T-Shirt. The sexy new Summer anthem is sonically inspired by the fun energy of DNCE, grooves from The Weeknd, with a throw-back twist of Michael Jackson. The band strategically planned to release their new single on March 24th, just before heading across Canada in April with Warner Music Canada’s, Courage My Love. The single is already on fire with massive support from Spotify Canada, the fans, and Canadian pop radio (Currently at #40 on HOT AC). With ambitious plans ahead, The New Electric is eager to hit the road and have the chance to play for their fans again.
