Try a mixture of the 70’s powerful vocals, 80’s mean guitar riffs and the heavy groove from the 90’s and 2000’s. Now put it all together with a contemporary look. After all, rock n roll has never been dead, so why not mix everything?
Well, this is Electric Mob
Coming from Curitiba (Brazil), the band was formed in 2016 by Renan Zonta (vocals), Ben Hur Auwarter (guitar), Yuri Elero (bass) and André Leister (drums) and surprises for the explosive sound and performance. The result feels like a sonic punch in the face, mixing a heavy sound with its own groove.
After Renan Zonta’s outstanding participation in the reality show “The Voice Brazil”, the band released their first studio work with 4 tracks. The EP “Leave A Scar” (2017) had great reviews and established the band as one of the most promising rock n roll bands in the country.
In 2019 the band signed a multi-album deal with Frontiers Music.
“Discharge”, the debut album of the band, was released on July 12th of 2020. In less than one month the album already had more than 1 million streams on Spotify, together with the previously released singles. Such a sudden rise in the streaming giant resulted in the band being figured two times as cover of the main Hard Rack playlist and feature in dozen editorial playlists of the platform.
Also in 2020, the single “Devil You Know” figured both into the USA Billboard/BDS Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart and Foundation Rock Chart for 14 weeks, reaching the 22nd and 5th position respectively.
The label classifies the band as “one of rock’s most exciting and promising newcomers in years”.
