Check out this cool album/single review from RGM⚡️SE⚡️
Space Electric -The Great Attractor – Psych – Waves Productions
” Space Electric are from Oslo, Norway and rose from the ashes of Mad Above – one of the guys tragically died but that didn’t stop some of the members writing a eulogy for the fallen member, however the Mac containing all copies of the song and music was stolen in a burglary of the band’s studio. That didn’t stop them either, having knocked out this superb album despite of their loss.
Opening with the title track, these boys don’t hang around – it’s straight into the meat and the potatoes. The sound is a big and fat, and singer Bjørnar Mikkelsen has a voice perfectly suited to the huge sounds. ‘Lose It Completely’ is punkier but could do with a bit more attack, then ‘It Ain’t Over’ brings things down a bit on a superb anti-ballad. Bluesy lines that echo around add the atmosphere, and then the power chords come in on the chorus. ‘I Slave’ takes its sweet time getting to the point but when it does it’s a fine piece of 70s inspired groove rock – all dark and brooding, then ‘Head Down’ is in the same directions with some wonderful keys and a grinding riff. ‘Days Are Ending’ is another simple groover, and then ‘You Got To Bee Free’ harks back the 70s again with a bit of restrained rock that powers up the chorus. ‘The Awful Truth’ is more of the same, only a bit more understated and moodier, and then the final track ‘Trance’ is swamped in classic Moog synth and goes all jazzy for a bit before it settles down with the bass leading the line.
I enjoyed this immensely, although I don’t really where it fits. I love the warmth of the sounds they create which really does hark back to the fertile era of the 70s. So, if you are into flares, cheesecloth shirts and Ols Spice then look no futher.”

“Space Electric – The Great Attractor If you’re a fan of concept tracks and, more specifically, songs about being in a parallel universe, ‘The Great Attractor’ from Norwegian fuzzy rockers Space Electric is likely to be something you need to know about. With such an interesting subject matter, it’s little wonder the focus is mainly pulled by Mikkelsen’s vocals, but after a couple of listens it really hits home how much of an all-round strong band Space Electric are. Looking past the energetic vocals you have some almost grunge-esque riffs laced over a groovey bass and drums. This is a fun track that feels like it would be given a whole new life when we’re able to go out and enjoy it live again.”
New single out. It Ain’t Over. 5th of Sep 2020.
We are very proud to have our second single release to the upcoming album.
The second single ‘It Ain’t Over” from the upcoming album is out 5th of September 2020. We all have our demons. What are yours? Andrés Pérez (piano and keys) and Miquel Mestres (percussions) from Angel Sound Studio contribute on this song. We love it. Album release is the 1st of October. 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.
Rock Fueguine Magazine from Argentina has given us this cool REVIEW. Thank you.
“The Great Attractor” from norwegian band Space Electric reveals a solid hard rock groove. Its like a cocktail with hints of Black Sabbath, Lemmy Kilmister and Pearl Jam. With a dense sound -produced, mixed and mastered by the argentinian Alejandro Ortiz- the track is short and to the point. Great riffs and a driven voice, certanly a great soundtrack for a space mission. A song to listen to before the countdown to takeoff!”
They even included us in this SPOTIFY PLAYLIST.
