These Electric Lives call it quits

I put up a post when These Electric Lives released a cover of Chris Isaac's "Wicked Games". I have been awaiting their new album so I could do another post on the band, and was hoping to catch them live at some point. However, this was not to be.

On March 25, These Electric Lives announced via Facebook that they were calling it a day.

So I guess it's as good a time as any to reflect back on this band's short but great career by listening to some of my favourite tunes by them. They made some great driving and danceable power pop music, highlighted by soaring vocals, solid song writing and tons of energy.

"Hit the Ground Running"

"Called It Off"

"We Should Be Believing"

"Keep Love Safe"

"Soda Water"
