Band's focus is on "how the music makes you feel"

My Body Sings Electric is considered to be a mixture of many different types of music, including pop, rock, indie, and dance. The band lets the listener decide the style of music they play, and focuses more on the way the music makes you feel.

They started out as an edgier, more experimental band, and are now known for the quality and difficulty of the music they write themselves. Their newest single is called “Oceancrest.”

“We've been trying to tell deeper and more interesting stories with the lyrics in our newer music. A lot of our older music was very introspective, which has its merits, but we wanted the newer music to really draw people in,” said lead singer Brandon Whalen. “Oceancrest sort of wrote itself in a way, but we wrote the lyrics to match the mood of the song. It's fun to try to create a little world in a few bars of lyrics.”

The band's evolution

My Body Sings Electric kicked off their career when they won the 2012 KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays (past winners include Churchill, Air Dubai, and Flobots). The band has played around a hundred or more venues since their big break, but most of My Body Sings Electric’s fans are college-aged, so performing at universities is the perfect way to reach their listeners.

“Most of us went through the college experience and these things can be an awesome way to ignore your homework for a while,” says Whalen. “Our shows are always packed full of energy from us on stage, but beyond that we concentrate on bringing a really positive and infectious mood to our performances. If the crowd doesn't have an amazing night we haven't done our job.”

This performance is part of the 2013-2014 Contemporary Artist Music Series made possible by the generous support of Bohemian Foundation.
