“The duo Dynasty Electric is mysterious and hypnotic.”- Mike Wolf, TIME OUT NEW YORK ”Reminiscent of PJ Harvey with the combination of strength and sensuality…Dynasty Electric
establishes themselves as fine purveyors of arty indie rock.” IMPACT PRESS
Rising from the Brooklyn underground, Dynasty Electric’s explosive live shows and unique blend of electro pop and psychedelic folk rock has earned the group critical praise and attention from around the globe. Fronted by the powerful and seductive vocals (and theremin) of Jenny Electrik, Dynasty Electric’s retro-futuristic pop sound is crafted by Seth Misterka (Anthony Braxton, Shy Child, Hot Chip), featuring his densely layered production and live instrumentation.
In 2009, the group caught the attention of hip-hop mogul Damon Dash and entered into the studio with legendary producer Ski Beatz (Jay-Z, Camp Lo, Curren$y), who infused their infectious electro- pop melodies with his signature beats and created a sound that quickly infiltrated the New York nightlife scene. The album, “Golden Arrows”, was independently released in May 2011. British music news outlet NME named “Radiation”, a track from the record as one of the “Top MP3 Downloads” during that week. Dynasty Electric was also named an “Artist to Watch” on Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio. The title track was featured in a Victoria’s Secret ad campaign.
In the summer of 2011, Dynasty Electric released a single “Electric Love” (with guest drummer Brian Chase from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and signed with Brooklyn-based label No Shame. Their self-titled album was produced by David Maurice (Kerli, Garbage) and features critically acclaimed turntablist, DJ Logic. It was released in May 2012. The first single and video “Eye Wide Open” premiered on Nylon Blog, aired on MTV’s 120 minutes and has become a viral YouTube hit. It has also been the subject of over 450 remixes worldwide through Indaba Music. The second single, “Just Like That” was featured in a Victoria’s Secret National TV commercial.
In 2013, Dynasty Electric launched their own media label and events company- NewSonic (Frenchkiss Label Group). On November 12th, they released their open-source project “Euphoria”, with help from fans & friends from around the world. NewSonic, featured in BlackBook Magazine, is known for it’s diverse scene of extraordinary musicians, visual artists, and visionaries.
