Elektric Mistress is the kind of band you turn up on a long road trip cruising across the country in a convertible, with smoke billowing behind you. They have a new EP coming out »Chapter 99«, which channels the sludgy groovy vibes of bands past such as Black Sabbath, especially on the upcoming single »Radio«.
The band comments on the single: “We think any fans who enjoyed the first EP will enjoy our latest release. With the addition of Jason, we have a new layer of sound for fans to experience. »Radio« is about how music or a song brings back memories of past relationships. It has our most Black Sabbath type riffs, for sure. Riley came up with the main riff on this one.”
Since the last EP, they have added a new guitarist Jason Cantfell, who is the twin brother of current guitarist Kyle Cantfell. The duo leans into their “Twinchronicity”, with mesmerizingly coordinated harmonies, and bolsters their sound with the addition of equipment including an impressive array of guitar pedals, mini megaphones, and synthesizers.

Appealing to the audio nerds out there, the tracks on »Chapter 99« were shoved through the super-rare CLASP system (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processing) at Fang Recordings to capitalize on that old recording sound. They crushed the hell out of that tape to add a unique dimension to their psychedelic sound.
Elektric Mistress recorded all the songs on their own, and cite that it was definitely a learning experience creating this album but they appreciate the ability to have more control over their groovy and technical licks. They are constantly writing new stuff so those impressed by »Chapter 99« can look forward to a bunch of new tunes in the future.
Elektric Mistress presents their sludge/stoner vibes, in classic drop D tuning and are working in Zeppelin-esque grooves lately as well, which will be presented on the next album. They are recommended for fans of Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and Kyuss.
