One thing is equally unmistakable: with their second album, the three push the boundaries as far as the stamp electro-swing sound will allow (Going even further than Debut LP “St. James Ballroom”). And in this way they come closer to their almost unattainable ideal of their “own sound”. On Electric Shock the mixture of mechanical and contemporary digital sound sources succeed better than ever before.

The fact that their passion for the culture of the 1920 & 30s on “Electric Shock” shines through, is nevertheless, no accident. However, Alice Francis have absolutely no interest in a resurgence of bygone times. They care only for the fact that what still swings today simply does not fall into oblivion. Nevertheless, thanks to Alice Francis time travelling is no longer of the impossible anymore….
