RECORDED LIVE GIBSON STUDIO SESSION
Electric Sun “Don’t Look Back” video exclusively premieres on AOL. You can watch it here. Lead singer Vlad Holiday describes the concept of the video by saying, “We wanted to find a huge place to capture the song’s theme of freedom and certainty. The kites symbolize a lift of spirit, which is necessary in finding success or happiness in yourself. It’s all about that state of mind where you can take on the whole world, and I think director Dan Kennedy captured that essence.” “Don’t Look Back” can be found on the band’s debut EP The Gilded Cage, which is available for purchase on iTunes. The 5 song EP, co-produced by lead singer Vlad Holiday and Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady, Brand New, The Gay Blades, Lissy Trullie), was recorded in Queens, NY.
The band just wrapped up recording a 3 song set in NYC’s Gibson Studio as part of their Live Studio Sessions series. After opening up for Guns N’ Roses twice on their 6 show club tour last month, Electric Sun will be performing next at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on March 20th.
Electric Sun is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). After a year and a half of writing songs about optimism, something Holiday explains he found “by sitting back and viewing other people’s negativity” he presented the material to his long time friends. Holiday’s goal is to “inspire people to do great things…I want to add soundtracks to their lives and give them a bit of extra fuel to get through the day.” Carl, Tantao, and Kellner all backed Holiday’s vision and ES was formed.
