Electrelane is one of my favorite bands, well were (R.I.P). They were formed in Brighton in 1998 and their music was influenced by a wide range of musicians including Sonic Youth and The Velvet Underground. The band had exceptionally strong feminist and political views but strayed away from empowering their fans with this. I was introduced to ‘To The East’ when my best friend was traveling in India and had it as her myspace profile song. I played it on repeat to remind myself of her and now when I listen to it, I become overpowered by her presence.
Come back, come back, oh to me <3
