Neo-synthpop for the final generation
BIRMINGHAM ELECTRIC is the brainchild of American expat singer/songwriter Andrew Evans. Along with Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark's Malcolm Holmes and Berlin techno guru Mark Reeder (of Factory Records and MFS Records fame), Birmingham Electric has released a series of singles and the debut album Communication, released on Believe and conzoom Records. Birmingham Electric's dancey and groove-laden music is an authentic time capsule from another era, but it is also informed by and updated with a modern electronic sensibility.
Birmingham Electric is a dynamic live act, playing festivals and clubs across Europe and the UK. Drummer André Machado, bassist Aldo Viñerta and keyboardist Lori Evans round out the BE live lineup.
