Matthew E. White has shared ‘Electric’, the second single off his forthcoming solo album K Bay. The track arrives with an accompanying video directed by Wes Parker, in which White gets his hair trimmed for the first time in years. Check it out below.
“I wrote this song after listening to ‘Me, My Baby And My Cadillac’ by Sleepy Brown,” White explained in a statement. “I wanted to write something so intentionally direct like that. When we recorded I wanted the playing to come across raw, limit the instruments and let everything redline from start to finish. The lyrics are mostly pure 60’s bubblegum pop – think Brill Building Carole King – an homage to the overtly saccharine songwriting style of that era. There’s really an absurdity, and theater to it all.”
