Good morning, kittens & dawgs this morning’s ReverbNation pick is Electric Hippo!
The artists’ bio reads:
Phiilo (formerly Electric Hippo) ties together the power of EDM with the rhythm and fluidity of funk, jazz, rock, and soul. Live instruments—primarily Nick’s distinct and technical style of electric guitar—are incorporated alongside experiments in digital sound production and Jonny’s broad vocal range. These components, while designed individually with high attention to detail, combine to create what is best described as stylistic electronic compositions.
After meeting in Boulder, Colorado, Nick and Jonny capitalized on a unique musical chemistry and immediately started jamming, writing what would become the first few Electric Hippo singles (including “Closer,” which layers silky ambience, RnB vocals, and a punchy arena synth). The song-writing process reflects each member’s forte: Nick, as instrumentalist, producer, and sound engineer, creates the musical composition and backbone, while Jonny writes and records vocal melodies. Unafraid to experiment, and dedicated to bringing listeners new sounds, Electric Hippo is poised to fill a crucial void in the ever-changing landscape of modern electronic music.
Bringing to you, hopefully, a new-to-you discovery, I give you Phiilo!
