Electric Litany + Elsa Hewitt on Sunday 21st November 2021
“Bleak and broody music has never been quite so thrilling.” -The Guardian
“I said to myself, ‘they could be the next Radiohead'.” -Alan Parsons, BBC Interview
“Brooding, brusing piece of post punk with deeply lo-fi attitudes. There’s a beauty to their melancholy.” -Clash magazine
“Music worlds collide with Electric Litany... Synthy, melancholic, etherealism.” -Nick DeRiso
Electric Litany is a London-based four piece whose music incorporates sounds of post rock, synthpop, neoclassical, electronica and experimental soundscapes. In their formative years, founding members Alexandros Miaris and Richard Simic lived and rehearsed in abandoned buildings across East London, and recorded their debut album “How To Be A Child and Win The War” in 2010 in a North London church.
Success of this album led to a support slot with Interpol on their 2011 European tour and caught the eye of legendary producer Alan Parsons, who produced their second album “Enduring Days You Will Overcome” in 2014.
In July 2015 Electric Litany were asked to perform in Sytagma square in front of tens of thousands in Athens, Greece during the protest against austerity. The next day they performed on the main stage at Rockwave festival alongside The Prodigy and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
In 2019 Electric Litany released their third album “Under A Common Sky”, which features tracks ‘Sealight’ and ‘Refugee’, both receiving numerous awards for their music videos.
Electric Litany re-entered the studio this year to begin work on their new EP “Music for Sleep”. The largely improvised recording is inspired by dreams and showcases a more delicate approach in its instrumentation. Piano, double bass, drums and modular electronics weave a beautifully complex and constantly evolving audio experience.
Electric Litany is:
Alexandros Miaris (Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Synths)
Richard Simic (Drums, Pads, Samples)
Pavlos Mavromatakis (Bass, Vocals)
Thodoris Ziarkas (Synths, Double Bass, Vocals)
George Botis (Producer)
Elsa Hewitt is an English music producer, songwriter and artist. Hewitt began recording her own songs as a young teenager, following her natural inclination to create effects and atmospheres organically using whatever would be available. She progressed through fronting post-punk bands to solo electronic songwriting, developing her ear for aesthetic and passion for album-making all the while. In 2021 she released her seventh cross-genre electronic album LUPA. After a great deal of experimentation with resampling and remixing her own recordings and songs, her sound has come to comprise ambient, experimental dance, avant-garde, lo-fi, alternative techno and hip-hop, modern classical and folk-tinged songwriting.
Music Genres: Electronic, Experimental, Post Rock, Synth Pop
