Electrik Ants Defy Classification With Genre-Bending First Album
Dallas-based Electrik Ants are releasing their six-track live studio album Stories Untoldon May 6, 2021 to all platforms.
Recorded on January 6, 2020, no one in Electrik Ants knew what the year or COVID-19 would have in store. Encapsulating the energy of a group described by local media as the “next must-see band” and “busting at the seams with talent,” the Best New Act Award winners recorded live to embody their notoriously vibrant shows–honed playing the likes of the Backwoods Music Festival and opening for Grammy-winner Shaun Martin.
Writing music together since their instruments were pots and pans, Electrik Ants was formed by two brothers who listen to as much Tchaikovsky as Skrillex, as much Thelonious Monk as UGK, and debate Frank Zappa or Gorillaz with regularity. In doing so, Electrik Ants are pioneering the “Hip-Hop Fusion” genre they’ve helped create.
