About the song... Picture this... It's raining outside... The local speakeasy bar is packed to the brim. It’s the first time in 2 years we get to listen to live music. The lights dim. Budding Singapore-based neo-soul experimental group Electric8 gets on stage and performs “One Step Forward”. Co-produced by lo-fi favourite Taiyo Ky, vocalist Rachelle takes us on a reflective journey backed only by a soulful piano, organs and piercing cellos in the first half. The beat drops in the second half to beautifully crescendo and leaves us on a hopeful note. About Electric8 Based in Singapore. We are product-market fit specialists for tech companies by day. Budding musicians by night. We’re Electric8. We make experimental music that takes you on a journey. We blend different genres such as neo-soul, jazz, trip hop, RnB, indie, lofi, electronic and ambience. It all started in early 2021 with “To See with One Eye”, our multi-genre 5 track EP reflecting on the challenges of the creative journey of our day job, produced by London-based, jazzy hip hop legend Funky DL. We then followed up with an 8-minute long trip hop story in "Shadow of the Enchantress" in collaboration with lo-fi favourite Taiyo Ky. “Head into the Rain” is an uplifting new jack swing era-inspired RnB ballad with a title paying tribute to one of the songs of conscious hip hop legends A Tribe Called Quest. Speaking of tributes… our name itself is an homage to 8 of the ?uestlove-led Soulquarians who recorded at Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios in New York, and went onto their mark on the music industry in the early 2000s. … Stay Electric. Hope you like it as much as we enjoyed making it!
