Formed in April of 2006 by original members Chris Anderson and Brian Pierce, The Electric Primadonnas have been in a constant state of evolution. Their first release of Tambourine Massacre (2007) started out as “brash, pseudo 70’s pop rock” (Nonzine Magazine) and has evolved into multi-layered sexy psychedelic grooves. Their next two albums, Subconscious Overdrive and the self titled, The Electric Primadonnas only continued their 60’s freakbeat inspired sound with a space-aged kick.
IIn late 2009 Michael Melvin (bass) and Pilar Pueyo (synth/keys) joined The Electric Primadonnas and that is when they really formed something special, and freed Anderson to really develop his multi-layered recordings into multi-layered performances.
Since their 2010 release Summertime, The Electric Primadonnas have been playing almost nonstop locally and on small regional tours to both east and west coasts. In 2011 they took part in Norman Music Festival, After ‘Gonzo Noon Festival, The Event, and Carnality Ball in Oklahoma. They also traveled down to Houston, Texas to play at Free Press Summerfest with fellow psychedelic enthusiasts Tobacco, The Black Angels, and Neon Indian amongst many more.
They are currently recording their fifth full length album in Oklahoma City.
