“Words Girls & Games - Vol 1”, features 5 original tracks and proves to be the first of two releases from the band. It is a collection of songs about promises (words), heartache (girls), and stratagems (games). On the surface, these songs are born from lament. Dig a little deeper and these tracks, with optimism, wit, and candor, can be applied to the soundtrack of many facets in life.
Recording began in January 2016. An epic winter storm interrupted the initial sessions and ultimately prolonged the completion process until nearly a year later. But as the pieces gradually came together, like whiskey in a barrel, these tracks had the chance to age a bit. They're warm, contemplative, and playful.
Eastern Electric is a band of layers... From the ground up, their sound is built on a deeply solid rhythm section, followed with the expansive and at times ethereal layers of pedal steel guitar and organ, solidified by smooth and smoky vocals.
“Words Girls & Games - Vol 1” features 5 original tracks heavy on twang and grit. Plug in your favorite device... and turn that sh*t up!
