Electric Guest is a pop duo from L.A. They released their debut LP, Mondo, in 2012, and have returned today with a new ’70s-inspired cut called "Dear To Me." It's a good wintertime jam, with lots of cooing and dreamy synths. Singer Asa Taccone told The FADER over email that "Dear To Me" is his favorite off their new album, which is coming in early 2017, and that the song "came from the heart."
Taccone also explained how the track, debuting above, came together and how Haim ended up singing backing vocals.
"Matthew (my bandmate) had a job at this studio in L.A. that had all of these old synthesizers from the 70s and 80s lying around. I came in one afternoon for just a few hours and we played around with as many of the instruments as we could, then recorded most of the rest of the song in my bedroom. One of the Haim girls lives down the street from me, so one day all three sisters came over with some other friends of mine and after hanging out for a few hours we went into my little studio and recorded the chorus vocals. I recorded them on one mic. It’s easy with them because they’re been singing together for years so they blend super well."
