After years of grinding towards a dream, the Electric Guest frontman Asa Taccone and his musical partner, Matthew Compton, finally achieved breakout success with their 2012 debut, 'Mondo,’ recorded with longtime friend and mentor Danger Mouse, the album was an unqualified success.
'Plural,' a record that finds Taccone and Compton at the absolute top of their game, infusing their version of electronic r&b with an even more confident, adventurous spirit than 'Mondo' displayed. Lead single "This Head I Hold" was featured in an NFL Super Bowl commercial, while other tunes turned up in soundtracks everywhere from ‘Girls’ to ‘Suits.’ MTV named Electric Guest an Artist To Watch, NME tagged them as a Band Of The Week, and they made the rounds at festivals from Bonnaroo to Outside Lands in addition to taking late night TV by storm with electrifying performances on Letterman, Fallon, Conan, and more.
Emotional payoffs are Electric Guest's specialty, and the freewheeling sense of looseness Taccone rediscovered resulted in several off-the-cuff collaborations, including impromptu appearances Joanna Newsom and the Haim sisters.
