Newly formed pop-alternative act based in Nashville just released the track ‘Ponytail‘, along with a sultry playful video that can be viewed here. The 4 piece who dub themselves The Love Elektrik is fronted by songwriter/producer Anthony Rankin.
With a short time of its release, the video and song have organically accrued thousands of views on Vevo and streams on Spotify. It would be a big win and a good fit for these boys if they could hop on the Maroon 5 summer tour.
The brainchild of frontman Anthony Rankin, The Love Elektrik is the personification of sweaty, synth-driven funk pop. Tailor-made for radio rotation and with flashes of retro, this Nashville outfit fuses the ethereal funk of Prince with modern-day pop architecture a la Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and Katy Perry. Bassist Victor Brodén helps to provide nuanced grooves and major league melodies, while the music is anchored by sturdy beats and bulletproof hooks delivered by Rankin’s dynamic voice.

The Nashville outfit’s style relies heavily on Rankin’s dynamic voice, sturdy beats, and bulletproof hooks.
