The New Electric had an exciting 2016, winning “Group of the Year” at the First Annual YYC Awards in Calgary, opening nation-wide for Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and releasing their debut EP Living Loud. The New Electric are also excited about their new single recently released “T-Shirt”.
The New Electric is comprised of Calgary natives Kyle McKearny (lead vocals), Shade “Indy” McKearney (bass & vocals), Chris Doi (bass & vocals) and Adam Casey (drums & vocals).
Jenn: You just released your new single “T-Shirt”. Can we expect a music video in the future?
Indy: I would love to make a music video for this song! We’re working on a few ideas, but nothing has been determined for sure yet!
Jenn: How does it feel to be nominated for a Canadian Radio Music Award for Best New Group or Solo Artist?
Indy: It’s unreal! To even be nominated is huge, the other nominees are amazing, and we are very excited!
Jenn: Who are some of your music influences?
Jenn: Are you excited to join Courage My Love on tour?
Indy: I am! They are some the coolest people I’ve ever met, and I love watching them play live, so to get that opportunity every night for a while is going to be rad!
Jenn: How did you come up with your name?
Indy: We were mulling over names and my brother, Kyle McKearney, just said Thank you, we are The New Electric after a song and it just kinda stuck.
Jenn: Can we expect more new music in the near future?
Indy: How near is near? Haha, we’re always working away on new stuff!
Jenn: Any plans to come to the east coast?
Indy: We can’t wait to come out that way! Our family came into Canada through PEI originally, so it always has been a dream of ours to play out there! Nothing booked yet, but we have our fingers crossed!
Jenn: Lastly, what is on your current playlist?
Indy: Childish Gambino’s new record. Kendrick Lamar always. I’ve been delving into some older stuff like Billie Holiday and The Ink Spots. I love Jocelyn Alice’s track “Bound To You”.
