Hailing from Wellington, Harbour City Electric are a live 7-piece band who have incorporated a diverse array of influences -ranging from Motown era funk and soul through to contemporary Hip-hop- to create their unique sound. Throwing synthesizers, tight horns, a kicking rhythm section and world-class vocals into the mix, Harbour City Electric have crafted their own unique style, which can only be described as Acid-funk and heavy break-beat soul.
April 13th sees the release of their first EP, with engineering by local legend Mike Gibson, mixing by Benny Tones (Electric Wire Hustle, Pacific Heights) at Newtown's Organik Muzik Workz and mastering by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Madlib, D'Angelo) at Elysian Masters in Los Angeles. The EP features guest singer extraordinaire Lisa Tomlins (Fat Freddie’s Drop, Recloose, Rhombus) and 5 superbly crafted tracks, that will build on the bands already solid nation-wide following.
