With a signature psychedelic pop beat and a happy bounce, MGMT’s hit “Electric Feel” is 100% on every hipster’s “Party,” “Chilling Out,” and “BBQ” playlists. But Perth-based electronic trio Crooked Colours have completely changed the vibe of “Electric Feel” with their reworked version. Crooked Colours has managed to turn the MGMT hit into a mysterious and edgy song with haunting vocals and a steady synth. Who knew “Electric Feel” could sound so dark?
In a 2014 interview with Triple J, the trio said audiences can expect “live drums, hard-synths and three sloppy rigs” at a Crooked Colours live show. They had me at “live drums.” Unfortunately, this summer, the trio is only hitting up Australian cities, like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and their hometown Perth.
I’ve only heard a couple tracks from these guys and I’m already down (under).
