With its beautifully floating retro sound, synth pop duo, Electricity Flowing's first full-length album (we live by night) is a hymn to those who live by night.
The Seoul-based synth pop duo, Electricity Flowing delightfully pursues indie dance pop with a wry nod to the 80s.
In this particular album, the love for the 80s, a golden age for electronic music, manifests itself with all its deep sentiments.
The duo revamps their favorite pop tones and hues and adds its own melodic sensibilities with a touch of electronic chicanery to create a track list that reflects upon urban alienation all the while shaking one's body to the funky tunes. It is music for both the mind and the feet.
Thematically, We live by night focuses on night and all things and people related to the night. According to the duo, night is defined as an empty time in which we are no longer occupied by the things 'we have to do.'
Likewise, how we spend our nights rests solely on our shoulders. For the duo, nighttime is thus an expansive time in which we must face our own ontological insecurities.
Electricity Flowing interweaves this idea of nighttime solitude into its lyrics and tonal choices by using declarative synth melodies and basic beats all in all to carry us with its beautifully airy romanticism through the album.
