“It’s almost impossible to remain still when listening to The Electrical Fire. Their music, their purpose covers the whole spectrum of emotion, energy, inspiration, nostalgia, and passion. It’s always nice when you latch onto a band like this. They make memorable, rocking music without feeling a sense of generic-isms; a band that sounds polished, that radio may or may not adore and that doesn’t leave your brain too quickly. With their new release, The Electrical Fire just keeps getting better and able to blend their electronic influences, rocking rhythms and saxophone interludes rather than one overpowering the other.

The Electrical Fire’s sound draws both from modern music, vintage 70’s, and 80’s rock and new-wave, and the outcome is a sound that is ultimately forward-thinking and also reverent of the past. The overall result is an album that is consistent and enjoyable. The detail in the crafting of each song and the way that they all fit together as a whole is very impressive.

I’ve had Music byThe Electrical Fire, Volume One playing in my car for a few days straight and I’m not tired of it yet. Not even a bit. In fact, my friend changed it when I was giving him a ride and nothing else sounded right when I was driving. This is electronic rock done right. It’s all-embracing with many organic sounds, like guitars and pianos, besides the saxophone of course, but more importantly, without sacrificing musicality.

I found the that the best listening experience is had at elevated volume levels, especially on songs like Snapshots’, ‘Together In The Dark’ and ‘I Know The Others’. Sometimes The Electrical Fire switches between broad extremes that will leave you startled and surprised, like the understated organic-induced ‘Someone Spinning’ which moves directly into two almost high-energy, Techno-sounding, electro songs such as The Open Road’ and ‘All In Good Time’.

The energy of the album and the experimentation with sounds pushes to distance itself from the usual electro-rock we’re used to. Of course everyone’s’ music tastes are different, and that’s fine, but for me the music seems so much richer and more complex with the emphasis on opposing sound textures and tones. Anthony Barounis is an eclectic, creative artist and Music byThe Electrical Fire, Volume One showcases his and his collaborators skills very well!”

“The Electrical Fire is a driven and charismatic rock band whose sound is a forward-thinking blend of rock and electronica. Their music echoes the dark and industrial soundscapes of artists such as Nine Inch Nails, just to mention one. Their latest studio effort, Music by The Electrical Fire, Volume One is arguably the initial volume of a collection of songs that showcase a band that refuses to get stuck in a box. If on one hand the songs are often characterized by fuzzy and aggressive riffs with an industrial flare, there is also a lot of variety and texture. The lush synth lines create some beautiful ambiance, while distinctive instruments such as the saxophone, present throughout the album, add a personal and unique touch to the entire release.”

“Stark and artsy.”

“The newest electric, punk-dance EP by The Electrical Fire, Bubble Moon, is nothing short of energizing, fun, and spontaneous. Awesome for a party, workout, or random solo dance session. The music sounds weird and twisted—and yeah, that’s a good thing! Anthony Barounis, creator of The Electrical Fire, has taken a risk with this album. His music pushes the boundaries of traditional electronic-dance tunes with an edgier, artsier undertone. Easy to love and dance to. The Electrical Fire creator, Anthony Barounis is the Andy Warhol of music with in-your-face originality and edge.”

“The Electrical Fire’s new single from Bubble Moon is called ‘Get Behind It!’ It’s got a dance beat reminiscent of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It,” J.J. Fad’s “Supersonic,” and other “go-go” music from the late 1980s…but it’s also very 2013, the kind of song you’d hear in dance clubs worldwide.”

“Hot on the heels of the film soundtrack, The Electrical Fire is back with Bubble Moon which was released on April 30, 2013. With 11 diverse and catchy songs, Bubble Moon is a rarity these days – a true ‘full-album’ experience with recurring themes and lyrics. Perfect for summer, the music here invokes feelings of optimism and nostalgia. It’s the type of album that makes you want to hit the road and just see where it takes you.”
