DESPERATE ELECTRIC FIGHT THEIR DEMONS TOGETHER IN NEW SONG 'STAY'
"Some bands have talent, others have character, but very few have soul. Desperate Electric is all of that in one."
Taste Magazine, Denver, CO
Desperate Electric, likewise, are talented enough to subsume their influences into the songwriting to such a degree their sound is familiar yet never imitative. Bands capable of making their frame of reference less than obvious deserve our attention.

There are certain songs that you hear once and you think 'this makes me want to dance'. You hear it again, and think 'damn, this is kind of dark'. "Stay", the new single from Desperate Electric, is that song. The disco synth track opens with conversational lyrics that dive into an emotional plea as the the synth swells into the chorus. The track as the raw, honest feel of the duo's earlier work, with the elevated production of a team that's been honing their craft over the past several releases.
Desperate Electric explains the inspiration behind the track:
'Stay' is about not hiding behind your problems; staying, facing the music, and dancing through it. Breaking generational habits, while forging a creative career path is quite the undertaking, but struggles are easier if we work through them together, and can move forward being the best version of ourselves for the people around us. It's not about constantly beating yourself up for the mistakes of your past, it's about growth, and leaving to love yourself and see your self worth even when you've made mistakes. Take your pain, learn, and then throw a dance party.
