“Bleak and broody music has never been quite so thrilling”

The Guardian (UK)





Electric Litany is a London-based four piece whose music incorporates sounds of post rock, synthpop, neoclassical, electronica and experimental soundscapes.

The band have released three albums: “How To Be A Child and Win The War” (2010), “Enduring Days You Will Overcome” (2014) and “Under A Common Sky” (2019) as well as the “Love” EP (2016).

Founding members Alexandros Miaris and Richard Simic formed the band in 2007. In their formative years Electric Litany lived and rehearsed in abandoned buildings across East London including Leyton Town Hall and The Fallen Angel in Walthamstow. In 2009 they recorded their debut album “How To Be A Child and Win The War” (Inner Ear) in a church in Neasden North London with producer George Botis.

In 2011 the band performed extensively including supporting Interpol on their European tour and numerous European festival appearances.

In 2012/2013 the band recorded their second album “Enduring Days You Will Overcome” with music legend Alan Parsons as co-producer. Response to the album was hugely positive and gained the band international recognition.

In July 2015 Electric Litany were asked to perform in Sytagma square in front of tens of thousands in Athens, Greece during the protest against austerity. The next day they performed on the main stage at Rockwave festival alongside The Prodigy and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

In 2019 Electric Litany released their third album “Under A Common Sky”, which features tracks ‘Sealight’ and ‘Refugee’, both receiving numerous awards for their music videos.

2021 saw Electric Litany enter the studio to record 5 tracks for the upcoming EP “Music for Sleep”. The largely improvised recording is inspired by dreams and showcases a more delicate approach in its instrumentation. Piano, double bass, drums and modular electronics weave a beautifully complex and constantly evolving audio experience.

Electric Litany is:
Alexandros Miaris (Vocals, Guitars, Piano, Synths)
Richard Simic (Drums, Pads, Samples)
Pavlos Mavromatakis (Bass, Vocals)
Thodoris Ziarkas (Double Bass, Synths, Vocals)

“I said to myself, ‘they could be the next Radiohead.”

Brooding, brusing piece of post punk with deeply lo-fi attitudes. There’s a beauty to their melancholy

“Music worlds collide with Electric Litany... Synthy, melancholic, etherealism.”
