From Series Two Records
Elecric Needle Room is a 4 piece band that are from Omaha, Nebraska. They have a very nice style of music that would be described by some as Indie Pop. Their own music draws comparisons to bands such as The Beach Boys and Ben Folds Five. Others even compare them to They Might Be Giants. Their influences include Living and dying and also Sufjan Stevens. As the band says about the latter "That dude is a genius".
If you will be in or around Nebraska in Feburary or March it would be worth your time to check the calendar on their myspace page for their shows and to hear their sounds. Their page is www.myspace.com/electricneedleroom and they also have another page not owned by Rupert Murdoch which is www.electricneedleroom.net
