Electric Litany formed in the spring of 2007. They have spent the last twelve months rehearsing in abandoned buildings and performing intimate gigs in derelict buildings across London.
In this short space of time the three piece have built a reputation for their intense, haunting and unpredictable song-writing and live shows.
The members themselves are anything but conventional. Vocalist and guitarist Alexandros Miaris from Greece, bassist Duane Petrovich descends from Texas and British drummer Richard Simic comes from a farming village in sleepy Devon.
However different their backgrounds may appear, each member is integral to the sound. Angelic vocals, creeping guitar delays, robotic rhythms and distorted synths give life to Electric Litany’s nostalgic and engaging lo-fi alternative sound.
With current single Tear getting playlisted on radio stations around Europe the band is quickly making a name for itself within the industry and gig circuit. The band spent the past months shooting two 16mm videos.
Existing in a different universe to the current British music scene, Electric Litany has already made a connection with an audience in a search for pure, exciting, original and integral music.
In July of 2009 they recorder live their debut album in an abandoned church in North London, in three days. The recorded material travelled to Athens for the mixing and then back to London at the Abbey Road Studios where the mastering took place. “How to be a child and win the war” was released on February 2010 from Inner Ear Records and it received great reviews.
