The Electorate are an Australian three-piece, indie pop-rock band.
With its members, Eliot Fish, Nick Kennedy and Joshua Morris, having featured in bands such as Big Heavy Stuff, The Apartments, Reality Instructors, Knievel, and Atticus, The Electorate originally formed as school kids with a love of melody, contortion and the energy of skewed pop.
Back then they played as The Templebears, kicking around the traps and releasing EPs – but as they prepared to record their debut, they splintered.
Years later when they re-grouped for a supposed one-off gig, the creative juices of their teenage years rekindled, sucking them back into the universe their songs had created.
With a forthcoming album (titled 'You Don't Have Time To Stay Lost') out soon, The Electorate are ready to release the second single from the record, 'Enormous Glorious Girl', on Friday (26 June).
Ahead of the song's release, scenestr is amped to premiere the accompanying video clip for 'Enormous Glorious Girl' today. Enjoy.
"'EGG', as we affectionately call it," Eliot says, "still has all the naivety of who I was back when I wrote it, but we did want to recapture the energy and verve of its original sentiment.
"The song definitely was written for a particular person, and it's fun wondering where they are now. They certainly never knew this was written about them.
"But all that aside, it's just a super-fun song to crash through as a three-piece: pure guitar-pop with an awkward lyric of self-doubt – and the song doesn't even crack the three-minute mark!"
When it came to the creative direction of the video clip, it was inspired by Saul Bass' iconic opening film title sequences. "Saul Bass was the master of film title sequences in the 1950s and '60s, and his work was the inspiration for the 'Enormous Glorious Girl' music video," Eliot says.
"The idea was to throw colour and words around with the energy a guitar-pop song demands, like some sort of psychedelic karaoke. Designer Gus Ronald somehow pulled that idea into a watchable two minutes."
