about

February 2016 will see the forth release from London based alternative four-piece Electric Litany. The five track EP, simply titled “Love” explores the infinite paths created by the human condition. Themes such as loss, distance and rumination are told through the arrangement of piano, shoegaze guitars, vocoders, lap-steel, synths and electronic percussion for which the band have become synonymous. The compositions pay tribute to 2014’s “Enduring Days You Will Overcome” yet somehow manage to draw us a little closer to the heart of the subject matter.

It is arguably the groups most intimate release with lyricist Alexandros Miaris wearing his heart on his sleeve with songs such as “Until The Day Breaks” or post apocalyptic “Crumar.” Fellow band members Benjamin Prince (synthesizers) confidently takes centre stage with the haunting “Earth II,” whilst Richard Simic (drums, pads) and Alex Deligiannidis (bass) leave their mark with the thunderous tribal rhythms on “War is abstract.”

“Love” also marks the second collaboration with associate producer Alan Parsons and George Botis whose influences can be felt within the sonic diversity. With the third album set to be released in 2016 “Love” is far more than a stepping-stone into the unknown. It is a record unafraid of its vulnerabilities that invites us to face what lies ahead. Whatever that may be.

Released on cd and digital ep via Inner Ear.

Track Name: Crumar
The summer has gone and me oh me
The summer has gone and you were the Ocean

The winter came on upon the hair of thee
The winter moved on Goodnight so to speak...
Track Name: War Is Abstract
There are doors outside
that when you ask them
they shall reply

That you are gone
That you are gone
That you are gone

There’s a war outside
I keep no promise
nor do I try

Cause you are gone
oh you are gone,
when you are gone

Don’t you wonder why
the Sun forgives me
when I deny

That you are gone
that you are gone,
When you are gone
Track Name: Hold Fast To Dreams
Fear lights the way, it shouldn't
Thoughts light the way beside you

Summer gave us sweets, for Nothing
You Vanished from my arms, on Sunday

"Can you hear my heart when its beating?
Can you hear my heart when its gone?
Would you hear my heart when its its beating?
Would you hear my heart when its gone"

Summer gave us sweets, for Nothing

Whispered, for a while, beside you
You Vanished from my arms, on Sunday

"Can you hear my heart when its beating?
Can you hear my heart when its gone?
Would you hear my heart when its its beating?
Would you hear my heart when its gone?"
Track Name: Until The Day Breaks
Once there was a time when i was young
I felt so much older, I felt so much older
There was something in the way, I always knew
We'll never be lovers, We'll never be lovers
Until the day breaks...
Until the day breaks...
Once there was a child Loved by the Sun
He sung by the water just to feel colder
There will be a time when you'll be a friend
No longer a Lover, no longer a Lover
Until the day breaks...
Until the day breaks...
