Described as making music that bridges the gap between electro-pop/new wave and supercharged indie-rock, These Electric Lives play their own brand of “melodic dance rock”. TEL’s exciting and energetic live show consistently delivers uplifting and danceable anthems fueled by an intensity of honest emotion and the powerful soaring voice of lead singer Mark Stanfield.
The Toronto, Canada based quartet began working with Juno-nominated producer João Carvalho (João Carvalho Mastering) releasing their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut EP in 2007. The underground hit “We Should Be Believing” charted regularly on college and internet radio stations around the globe. These Electric Lives’ infectious and catchy songs have become increasingly popular with DJ’s and producers in Canada, the US, and Europe, prompting the release of a TEL remix album in 2008.
In September 2010, TEL released a new EP entitled “We See Light…” and are currently back in the studio working on new material, including a dance track collaboration with New Zealand producer Yuhei Kubo, to be released on Bonerizing Records (Sweden) this spring. Fresh off their Indie Week Canada win, These Electric Lives are also gearing up for their first international tour in May which will include dates in Dublin and Belfast, headlining Indie Week Ireland and showcasing at Liverpool Sound City.
