Electric Looking Glass - Somewhere Flowers Grow
Imagine a gnome dressed in Edwardian garb snuck into your house, painted your room orange and replaced all your clothes with stripes and polka dots leaving you with a strange affinity for earl gray tea and champagne. This might be how you’ll feel after discovering Electric Looking Glass, a modern-day baroque pop group from Los Angeles, CA.
Electric Looking Glass unabashedly creates sugar-coated whimsical pop with all the bells and whistles; chiming guitars, dreamy mellotron, bouncy harpsichord and three-part harmonies. You might mistake them at first for an obscure Apple Records signing but Electric Looking Glass insists they are forward thinking tomorrow-people making music for NOW!
Boasting multiple vocalists, multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, Electric Looking Glass is a collaborative effort between four kindred spirits: Arash Mafi, Brent Randall, Johnny Toomey and Danny Winebarger. Self-producing in their own analog wonderland, the lads pay loving homage to the kaleidoscope pop of yesteryear with impressive attention to detail in both their records and smile- inducing Monkees-esque music videos. Electric Looking Glass released four singles in their first year quickly making Shindig! Magazine’s Top Ten Singles of 2019. These four far out dandies now cordially invite you into their technicolorworld with their first full-length LP Somewhere Flowers Grow out now!
