The View Electrical
The View Electrical emerged from the meeting of two music lovers: Frédéric Aellen (ex Sonograph) and Raul Bortolotti (Kruger, No Sun In San Francisco). They started working together in Fall 2012, besides misc activities, carefully crafting some demos which quickly became the core of their first album. Since the very first note, they focused on trying something different than the standard rock album, mixing every influence that has shaped them along the way.
Thus The View Electrical is the perfect crossover of various genres like folk, hip hop, ambient, metal, new wave, original soundtracks and nineties indie rock. After two years of hard work including various collaborations with members from Abraham, Jeniferever, Cortez or Khelvin, “Roseland”, the debut full-length effort signed by The View Electrical is available right now for physical (CD sleevepack, 2xLP) & Digital “pay what you want” through the almighty Hummus Records (Coilguns, Darius, Impure Wilhelmina, Kunz, Ø L T E N, Nevborn…).
A first album like a delicate sonic flower in a classy package of careful production signed by Raphael Bovey (Kruger, When Icarus Falls) & Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna). Synths, strings, orchestral guitars, reathing drums and a million voices in the land ofroses. Don’t expect it to be all gentle and smooth though, you might be surprised by some weird electronic drones and crushing post-hardcore climaxes. Sadness, despair, hope and joy all next to each other. Life in every breath.
