Ernie’s Pick of the Month
Electric Army - Hotbed of Descent
Electric Army is a group of five Pittsburgh area musicians forging new sounds that incorporate hard-hitting riffs, catchy vocal melodies, and a style that is all their own. Their self-produced debut “Hotbed of Descent” has something for everyone and sounds like a band settling into their swagger while at the same time ready to move on to bigger things. Descent captures something that few bands are able to achieve, which is a feeling of honesty and integrity. Whether it’s the seemingly care-free lyrics in “Heavy Dreamer” or the heavy instrumentation in “Gold”, it all comes across as genuine and invites the listener deeper inside the music. If their release show was any indication, Electric Army is one of the most promising bands in Pittsburgh, and they are just getting started.
TL;DR: A true DIY project that is as genuine as it is rocking.
