“Dear To Me” by Electric Guest

Electric Guest recently premiered the video for “Dear To Me”, the first song to be lifted from their forthcoming release (due in early 2017). Self-produced and recorded in LA, ‘Dear To Me’ layers up earworms galore, vintage 70’s and 80’s synthesizers, with backing vocals by the Haim sisters (who also appear in the video, alongside the likes of Andy Sambeg). 

Premiering today, the ‘Dear To Me’ video is described by Electric Guest’s lead-singer Asa Taccone as “a family affair. We just got all of our friends to be in it. It’s basically all of our closest people in one room, my mom & sister included. It was such a good vibe. “

Director Alan Del Rio Ortiz, meanwhile, writes: “After writing an idea for this I got the chance to meet Asa in person. We got along immediately, just as people and had a lot of similar ideas. We ended up collaborating to make something that was both very personal and also polished. I really love working with people who care as much about their work as these guys do and I think that attention really comes across here. I’m super proud to have this one out there in the world.” 

Electric Guest’s 2012 debut ‘Mondo’ was produced by Danger Mouse. The release, landed them performances on Conan, Letterman and Fallon, songs featured on ‘Girls’, ‘Suits’, ‘Teen Wolf’ + more, plus worldwide shows including London’s Scala and a month-long residency at Echo in Los Angeles.
