Derek Ellard and The Future Business Model share ethereal new single ‘Electricity’

March 24, 2023

Without missing a step, Derek returns with the wonderfully ethereal ‘Electricity’. The second single from his upcoming five track self-titled EP ‘The future business model’. Dripping with authenticity, this fresh take on the classic love letter overflows with vivid imagery and sentiment.

Once again produced and mixed in house by Derek and Joe, ‘Electricity’s’ folk leanings, along with Derek’s distinctly provocative lyricism are sure to lure you willingly into the songwriters’ refreshingly creative psyche.

Alt/folk/Rock based in Galway, Ireland, sounds like ‘Pinegrove’ ‘Phoebe Bridgers’ ‘The frames’ ‘Band of horses’ ‘Fleet foxes’. Music that is as deliberately challenging as it is intoxicating. Often hysterical, invariably restless but principally honest. Produced, recorded and released, in conjunction with Joseph Padfield (Bannered mare) under the Umbrella records collective.

Available March 24th “…it signals his return to action in considerable style, aided and abetted by a killer band with serious chops…an intoxicating brew of folk and post rock that’s peppered with a little bit of prog” Hot Press, Edwin McFee

“the sound of an artist who has honed his craft and got his shit together, which is always something to celebrate”

“they shake and stir the foundations of conventional acoustic singer songwriting with harmonies, poly-rhythms and beautiful guitar based syncopation” Sea Sessions
