Electric Angels, named for Bill Nelson's album, "Electricity Made Us Angels", are the transAtlantic collaboration of English guitarist Bob Kingdon and American sonic architect, Eric Daum. Having met through Bill Nelson's Fan Forum, Dreamsville, they first collaborated on a song, "Astro-boy on the Planet of the Amazon Women" on a compilation album in honor of Nelson's 60th birthday. They soon realized that they shared a love of much of the same music and their subsequent songs plumb a range of 60's, 70's and 80's Pop and Rock influences from Glam to Punk, Power Pop to Prog , and Orchestral Rock to Synth Pop. The influences are collaged into a unique style; always seemingly familiar, and yet wholly original.
Their first professional album, 2012's Dark City, was bleak concept album about the alienation of contemporary life and the inability of love to overcome the chasm between us. Strange Times is lighter fare, a collection of Power Pop songs about lost love, both romantic, and in the case of the anthemic epic "As Long As We Believe", for the Rock heroes of our youth.
