About Electric Touch:
Nottingham, England’s Shane Lawlor (lead vocals), Texas-born Christopher Leigh (guitar) and his fraternal twin brother Louis Messina, Jr. (drums), and newest members Isaac Strycker (guitar, keyboards and vocals), and Portland Musser (bass and vocals) – won thousands of hometown fans with their opening day performance at September’s Austin City Limits Festival 2011. They “provided ACL goers with a good dose of energy and an arena-sized sound they won’t soon forget,” raved the Austin Post.
The five-man Anglo-American band combines the rock passions of its British and American bandmates. They call their music “Tales of Ordinary Life in Glorious Technicolor,” and the garage-rock pulse of “Don’t Stop” sets the pace, a ferocious push-pull of sex and romance, from the highest highs of ecstatic union to the lowest lows of heartbreak.
