Hailing from Bergen, Norway, Electric Eye play droned out psych-rock inspired by the blues, India and the ever more expanding universe.
The four piece released their long awaited debut LP “Pick-up, Lift-off, Space, Time” in April 2013. The album received positive mentions in Norwegian media, which have spread to international blogs and radio stations. The album was a co-released in the US and the UK by Norway’s Klangkollektivet and London based Fuzz Club Records.

Highly recommended to fans of The Black Angels, Secret Machines and Spacemen 3.
Electric Eye will play Eurosonic Noorderslag on January 16th. Be sure to catch the Norweigan psych rockers as they make their debut SXSW appearance in Austin this March!
“This four piece are all about long jams and pushing their rack of pedals to the limit. The bassline starts and weaves a hypnotic trance like rhythm while layers of otherworldly sounds are added resulting in one hell of a racket. I knew this band would be good having checked out their sounds on the internet before leaving home but I didn’t know they would be this good. Fantastic!”

“This is by far my favourite record of the week and Electric Eye is strongly becoming my new favourite band, I would highly recommend this to fans of the likes of Hookworms, Follakzoid or any other Sacred Bones stuff, absolutely marvelous!”
