From Roadie Music to Music For All, York Calling, Less Than 1000 Followers and The Other Side Reviews, Electric High have been deemed super cool, energetic, and a slice of wonderful classic rock music. Hailing from Bergen, Norway, Electric High brings a vintage rock flavour to hard rock tones – think old-school Aerosmith with a brash slathering of Guns N’ Roses and you might have an idea of what we’re talking about. Yet, while this comparison can be made, Electric High has a unique modern-day feeling making them both fresh and familiar. The latest addition to their discography is the single ‘Seven Wonders’.
Following the bold, energetic single ‘Cyclone’, ‘Seven Wonders’ is Electric High’s first release in 2023. Combining pounding drums and robust guitars, the arrangement hits you between the eyes with its forceful rock. While Electric High retains their signature bad-ass rock attitude in ‘Seven Wonders’, the song has a sexiness slivering through the melody executed by the rich vocals of PV Staff and Olav Iversen. Special mention needs to be made to the outstanding guitar solo by Marius Mørch enhancing the ruggedness of ‘Seven Wonders’ with a cheeky grittiness.
Just as the lads take you on an electric rock and roll journey, they also deliver a lesson in ancient history that you are unlikely to forget. Seriously, if they played this music for me at school, I’d probably remember all that information. Based on the historical myths of Helios, Zeus, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and the seven wonders of the ancient world, Electric High boasts the ridiculous promises of these men. With a heartfelt intensity, you shift “back and forth as the story and the song plays out”; however, a spiral into a moment of realism and clarity appears with the melodic break-down of ‘Seven Wonders’ to a softer, less intense folk-inspired ending.
