pop*eye...UNDER ELECTRIC LIGHT—Waiting For The Rain To Fall (2011)


from Montreal


Waiting For The Rain To Fall (2011)

*I proud to highly

"Canadian band from Montreal. New wave, shoegaze, dreampop, indie-rock. The person responsible for this gem is Danny Provencher. Flirting with electronics and good melodies that go against the shoegaze, he treats us to the sound addictive. Influences ranging from Kraftwerk, My Bloody Valentine through and arrive in New Order. "Here's the long awaited debut! Required in the collection! A surprisingly melodic album, for me, one of the best in years. Records released by Fastcut this album is key!

All about

After years of secretly singing over records as a child in his native Victoriaville (somewhere between Quebec city and Montreal, Canada), Danny Provencher started playing bass in his secondary school band. He then moved to Montreal where he started writing and producing electronic music on his own as Under Electric Light. After the release of his first EP (Untitled, 2002), he decided to sing over his instrumental pop songs and released the Never See The Light EP (2005), the Blue EP (2006) and the After the Blue EP (2007). In his music, Danny is trying to blend his various influences such as New Order, The Beach Boys, My Bloody Valentine, Kraftwerk and Slowdive to achieve a truly personal sound, focusing on melodies and arrangements to create well crafted pop songs.

Waiting For The Rain To Fall is the first album of Under Electric Light. It has been released in Japan in February 2011 on Fastcut Records and received great reviews in influential Japanese music magazines such as Rockinʼ On and Cross Beat. The album has just been self released in North America and is available worldwide on iTunes, Bandcamp, Big Cartel and Amazon.
