Band on Band: Matt Heaton & The Electric Heaters
Hey, thanks for clicking on the link! Man, good to see you.
My name is Matt, I head up the Electric Heaters. We play Surf/Instro/Spy music, and we’re excited to be playing our first WEMF show on March 10 at PA’s Lounge in Somerville.
Wait, wait, I hear you saying. What is this “surf music” of which you speak? Do you sound like the Beach Boys?
No, we don’t sound like them (nor do we vote like that Mike Love character). We play SURF music, which is more Dick Dale, heavy reverb guitar, pounding drums, and almost all instrumental. Nary a vocal harmony in sight. Some of our influences would be the Raybeats (if you don’t know them, look them up!) Slacktone, Man…or Astro Man and others.
We’ve got a new EP out, self titled and including such hits at “Revere Beach Parkway (by Starlight)” and “Copley Soul.” We’ve got matching uniforms (except for Jared, he lost his) and snazzy hats.
AND we’re looking forward to playing with Cosmonaut Radio, House on Cliff and Tim Gibson at PA’s Lounge on Friday, March 10. Details here!
Here’s a video shot at the late, lamented TT the Bears. This was actually a duo show, when we were between bass players. But we’ve got one now!
