BAND SPOTLIGHT// AN EXPERIMENT ON A BIRD IN THE AIR PUMP
At last Electricity In Our Homes have been forced to relinquish their 'most annoying band name to type repeatedly' title. The first group we've ever heard of to be named after an 18th-century oil painting, An Experiment On A Bird In The Air Pump is a new project combining two talents: Lady Himalaya of Decasia Club and New Black Light Machine, and female electro-soul duo Eve Black/Eve White. With Ms Himalaya on bass guitar and the two Eves on stand-up drums and vocals respectively, the group make dark, minimal surf rock with soul vocals. It's a little like the aural version of a David Lynch film: atmospheric, scary, and arty as fuck... Catch them live at Decasia Club on 26th April supporting Factory Floor, or (better still - we're DJing) with Project:KOMAKINO at The Country Club Set in May.
