Welcome to our new Space Discovery!
Today’s track is just intoxicating, and it manages to spread the rock epidemic all over, even to those who don’t usually listen to the genre. Electric High – a perfect name for this group – is a rock band from Bergen, Norway, which blends alternative and hard rock, and their new single Flicking The Bees is raw energy translated into music. This is the result of a collab between Electric High‘s most active songwriters, PV Staff and Marius Mørch, and it’s sung by the two lead singers, PV Staff and Olav Iversen.
Opening with vocals that go straight to the point, followed by a burst of high-octane intensity, this track leaves no room for a dull moment in its whole 5:10 minutes. The song is adorned with memorable guitar riffs and vocal melodies that immediately grab the listener’s attention and stay stuck in their head, as the chorus “you’re flicking the bees, get down on your knees, grim’s knocking on your window”. It’s an imperative impossible to ignore, and so is the rest of the track.
The pounding drums create a beat that sets the raving pace and propels the song forward with an irresistible force, but without generating a harsh melody. The fusion of alternative and hard rock elements produces a sonic onslaught characterized by distorted, sharp guitars, thunderous drums, and a powerful, commanding presence, particularly felt in the rumbling guitar solo. The song exudes a confident and rebellious demeanour, with a self-assured swagger that conveys urgency and adds an extra layer of charisma to the overall performance.
The whole results in a dynamic combination of anthemic choruses and sweeping sounds which invade body and mind. Flicking The Bees is a perfect example of organised chaos with its hectic energy contained in a great musical scheme. This track is a sonic turbulence that carries away with it anyone who listens and reminds them to stop flicking the bees, cause they’ll eventually sting back.
