The Electorate is Eliot Fish, Nick Kennedy and Josh Morris.
Our debut album You Don’t Have Time To Stay Lost is out September 18 2020, and it’s been a long time coming. See, once upon a time, we were known as The Templebears. We were demoing our first album when we broke up, splintering into two camps – Nick and Eliot joined Big Heavy Stuff, and Josh started Atticus. Since then we’ve played in The Apartments, Knievel, Imperial Broads, Reality Instructors and more. Years went by. Quite a few. In 2015, we played a one- off benefit. As we came offstage, we knew we had to finally finish what we’d started, so long ago. You Don’t Have Time To Stay Lost has songs from then, and songs from now, and songs that have been left alone, and songs that have been poked and prodded. This bent pop collection celebrates small suburban spaces, wide open landscapes and deep dark oceans. We twist and stretch rhythms, guitars, and vocals into new forms that feel like old friends. We question our entitlement, our politics, our love, and how to battle the plastic containers of our kitchens. The album was recorded by Tim Kevin (Youth Group, Holly Throsby, Peabody, Toby Martin and others) in his Tempe River Studios, and mastered by JJ Golden (Soundgarden, Neko Case, Calexico, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings) in sunny California. It features the singles If I Knew, Enormous Glorious Girl and the newly released Decades in A Day, featuring a clip by Alex O Smith (Coldplay – Yellow, Peaches – Kick It, Pivot – In The Blood).
