SOLD OUT - Thank you!
Electric Guest is comprised of Asa Taccone, from Berkeley, California and Cornbread (legally Matthew Compton), from Danville,Virginia. When they play live, they pick up three friends to fill out the complex instrumentation: Asa plays several instruments, Cornbread nearly a dozen (including, to be fair, triangle and tambourine). Both began making music from a very young age, both initially self-taught. One journalist described their music as "a mutant-albeit somewhat cleaned up and electronic-60's garage thing," likening the sound to The Troggs, The Seeds, and The Zombies. Cornbread admits that those bands were a great influence on him but their inspirations are impossible to nail down as they both appreciate every genre of music, both having worked for years on various projects. With such an eclectic mix of instruments and influences, it's hard to nail down the sound of Electric Guest but Asa insists that it's ultimately pop music.
