"Some bands have talent, others have character, but very few have soul. Desperate Electric is all of that in one." -Taste Magazine, 2020
Dubbed ‘electro soul brilliance’, the Montana based duo, Desperate Electric, ‘enlists a perfect combination of live instrumentation with killer beats and all the bells and whistles under the kitchen sink’ (Indie Pulse Music, 2020). Consisting of Ben Morris (guitar, keys, vocals, production) and Kayti Korte (bass, vocals), the pair fuse their many influences to create a sound that’s both contemporary and nostalgic of past decades of funk, rock ‘n roll, and soul.

"What a perfect name for a duo that enlists the perfect combination of live instrumentation with killer beats and all the bells and whistles under the kitchen sink – Desperate Electric."
-Indie Pulse Music
"For us, listening to Desperate Electric (formerly known as DASH) is a bit like drinking a cold beer on a Friday night. It’s refreshing and laid back, it makes you want to laugh with some close friends, and it also makes you want to fucking party."
