NEW ALBUM RELEASE
‘ The Great Attractor ‘
1st of October 2020
Space Electric’s debut album ‘The Great Attractor’ is out 1st of October 2020. The second single ‘It Ain’t Over” from the album was out 5th of September 2020. We all have our demons. What are yours? The Great Attractor is the mass of a trillion suns drawing galaxies towards it. The force increases in intensity and pulls the earth towards an unknown fate. Space Electric inhabits this parallel universe with its electromagnetic rock. Do you believe in a multiverse? Do you believe in dark energy? Do you believe in free will? Or do you believe in nothing?
The band recently finished recording the album ´The Great Attractor´ in Barcelona, produced, mixed and mastered by Alejandro Ortiz (producer), Andrés Pérez (co-producer) and Miquel Mestres (assistant engineer) of Angel Sound Studio. The electromagnetic sphere just increased in size and density yet again. The singles feature vocalist Bjørnar Mikkelsen’s powerful voice singing of philosophical struggle over apocalyptic guitars, spacey Moog synthesizers, groovy bass riffing and thunderous drums.
Also feel free to listen to the singels and some of our other tracks just below.
Space Electric is a rock band in Oslo that materialized in 2014. The musicians are long-time friends who came together after Kristian Kruse, Bjørnar Mikkelsen and Åsgeir Knudsen joined forces with Jonathan Murray, Christian Yri and Thomas Yri. Kristian, Bjørnar and Jon played together in MAD ABOVE a decade earlier but parted ways after the tragic death of one of the band members. One of the first songs in the new band was a tribute to the lost band member. The music Kristian had written connected immediately with the whole band, and before long Bjørnar had written a beautiful eulogy and the song was finished. Unfortunately, after many sessions spent carefully recording the song, misfortune struck and the studio was burgled. The Mac containing the song was stolen, along with all copies of the recorded track.
Space Electric has already released 3 singles, produced/mixed by Ozzy (Åsgeir Knudsen) and mastered by Hugo Alvarstein. The singles feature vocalist Bjørnar Mikkelsen’s powerful voice singing of philosophical struggle over apocalyptic guitars, spacey Moog synthesizers, groovy bass riffing and thunderous drums.
Born in the land of the midnight sun and northern lights, where the northern road runs out – Kirkenes. At times Stasi superintendent, at times peace negotiator, Bjørnar is the band’s lyricist and singer-songwriter. A talented multi-instrumentalist.
Thomas is Space Electric’s very own John Bonham, steady as a metronome, louder than a landslide. A great musician generally, a brilliant drummer specifically. The Yri brothers are as tight as two strands of DNA, laying the rhythmic foundation of the sound.
Chris is the main songwriter and riff-builder. He can make a monster riff from one note. The heart and prime driver of the band, nothing stands in his way when his mind is made. Teamed with Åsgeir, Chris built the band’s studio with his bare hands.
Åzzy, a studio engineer by trade, is a master of all sounds great and small. His keyboards are handled with creative feeling and he engineers and produces the band’s music. His work includes early albums with Turbonegro and Satyricon.
Jon texturizes the sound and repedly fires up Space Electric with powerful solos, making his Jazzmaster weep and scream. He is a scientific sound-shaper, composer and self-confessed pedal junky.
Christian plays bass on the tracks ‘The Days Are Ending’, ‘The Awful Truth’ and ‘Trance’. He is an all-round creative, loving all things audiovisual, photography and webdesign. He is no longer an active member of the band. A.k.a. Silvercorn
