- Biba Love Electrobuddha 4:07
Electrobuddha is set to drop the new single titled ‘Biba Love’ on June 4th. An almost retro-anthem with psyche-rock roots, ‘Biba Love’ sonically marches forth with the musical history of the past few decades and brings a dirty hook and raucous beat you won’t soon forget.
Electrobuddha present to you their forthcoming psychrock single Biba Love, a tale of a infatuation with a beautiful female DJ who spins retro vinyl records and has a passion for wearing Biba styled fashion clothing!
‘Electrobuddha’ is the creation of Mark McCaffer and this debut is a gloriously sexy, groove-scored cut. Bleep, Whirr, Disco is a subversive hybrid of the most eclectic mix.
Imagine The Rolling Stones jamming with The Beta Band at a Scissors Sister gig and you’ll get an idea of where this album is coming from. Then add a packed Seventies disco with Jimi Hendrix and James Brown sharing DJ duties. Bizarrely, the vocals most closely call to mind Neil Hannon of Divine Comedy and it’s mighty odd pairing, over the bleeping, whirring, psychedelic disco sound that Electrobuddha has created.
If McCaffer can recreate this live, it will be one hell of a show. Catriona Killen – Daily Record, Glasgow, Scotland
Described locally in Scotland in the press as sounding like ‘The Stones with Hendrix and James Brown on decks’, Mark (Electrobuddha) has just finished his latest album entitled ‘The Psychedelic Kid’ What you can hear are some examples of that album.
Mark studied as a vocalist at Strathclyde University where he gained vocal honours and sang funk, grunge, blues, rock, folk and more. He was taught by the legendary Lorna Brooks appearing live on BBC Radio Scotland, and a detour some years after took him to Stockholm where he became a local stagehand and rigger for Live Nation Sweden and got to see many bands breaking through such as The Strokes, The Hives and also the very excellent Soundtracks Of Our Lives who were a big influence.
Heady days with great comrades and live music, hours and hours of hard work and later to start the project Electrobuddha, before returning home to Airdrie, Scotland. Mark has just completed a post graduate in Songwriting at UWS University Scotland within the last couple of years.
