Harbour City Electric release their first full-length album 'Without A Sound'. Recorded in a custom built studio in an old Masonic Lodge in Island Bay, Without A Sound captures the essence of HCE's live performances and more, showcasing the diverse writing and performing talents of the band.
Musically rich with funk, soul, motown with some beats and psychedelics thrown in for good measure, this album is the natural musical progression from their 2009 EP.
'Without A Sound' features the vocal talents of Louis Baker, Lisa Tomlins, Bella Kalolo, Kirsten Te Rito and Thomas Oliver, and a string arrangement by the incredible up and coming classical composer Natalie Hunt on the title track.
Mixed at Wellington's iconic Surgery studios by Lee Prebble and mastered by local legend Mike Gibson.
Harbour City Electric are: Ned Worboys (vocals), Simon Koziarski (guitars), Paddy Bleakley (bass), Ed Zuccollo (keys), Shaun Elley (drums), Lex French (trumpet), Richard Shirley (trombone).
