PUBLISHER’S PICK OF THE WEEK (By Adam Waldman)

ELECTRIC MOB – “Devil You Know”

Theatricality is the first thing that comes to mind at the beginning of Electric Mob’s “Devil You Know.” The swampy guitar intro makes it feel like you’re in the deep south. Technically speaking, Electric Mob makes the deep south look like the north, since these rockers hail from Brazil. Perhaps that’s what gives them a unique quality that you can’t quite put your finger on. Or maybe it’s the fact that they pride themselves on being the product of decades of rock all blended into one (based on their bio)…

“Try a mixture of the 70’s powerful vocals, 80’s mean guitar riffs and the heavy groove from the 90’s and 2000’s. Now put it all together with a contemporary look. After all, rock n roll has never been dead, so why not mix everything?”

Renan Zonta does not look like the soaring classic rock vocalists of yesteryear. He is not a classic rocker clinging to the glory of his past. He’s far too young and modern looking for that to be true, even if he and Electric Mob share the same label (Frontiers) as many of the great classic rock singers of a generation gone by.

“Devil You Know” is an interesting blend of the history of rock. Though there is a foundation of ’70s mystique, and soaring vocals, there is also an angsty grittiness laid atop a grungy groove that gives the band a hint of familiarity, while also feeling like it is modern and fresh. The more I listened to the song, the more that I thought that this song would have been a perfect fit to be featured during a dramatic scene in Sons Of Anarchy. Though that show is no longer on the air, it would be surprising if “Devil You Know” doesn’t end up in film or on television at some point. As far as radio goes, it’s anyone’s guess if the format that doesn’t easily embrace a stark deviation from the norm will embrace Electric Mob, but they should.
