Some bands still look back to the 70’s and early 80’s when they write and perform rock music, and I am happy for that. ELEKTRIC MISTRESS present an EP with three songs that I find interesting enough to let you know about it. They are a 5-piece from Halifax, Nova Scotia, in Canada.
Groovy rock and lightweight melodic hard hard rock is on the recipe. The EP begins with “Turn to grey” which is rather soft to start with, and slightly psychedelic. But it gets a bit heavier and is something for fans of early DEEP PURPLE to listen to. Even groovier is the cool “Cuba time” with solid vocals a bit like GLENN HUGHES here and there from Steve Poole. Finally we get “Meeting of the minds” with dominating organ in the early part – wonderful! 70’s groovy hard rock of high class, and I’d say there’s a hint of both DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN here.
The quintet are: STEVE POOLE (vocals), KYLE CANTFELL (guitars), RILEY mcDONALD (keyboards), KIERAN RICHARDSON (bass) and VICTOR CANALES (drums). But the music is the main thing. Very classy stuff, and it is absolutely recommended!
