"Want a major fix of psychedelic rock? Look no further than the Spiral Electric,
who takes major inspiration from the best of the dark flower power rock and rollers.
With perfectly sung vocals, catchy breakdowns, and a classic take on psych rock,
this band is super appealing both live and with a joint in hand and a good pair
of headphones on. Live, the intensity and technicality of the band cannot be overlooked
as they deliver elaborate melodies, speculative lyrics, and smartly composed and
well-executed psych tunes... The band pays homage (and does it very well) to the
psych history of their hometown, San Francisco. Spin out on their groovy rhythms
-- I'm pretty sure there will be at least one neo-hippie getting his or her groove
on right in front of the stage -- and just go with the flow." DNA Lounge
"Spiral Electric ... a much more classic
rock sound ... featuring Led Zeppelin-reminiscent guitar riffs, and an overall harder
sound. Their song, 'Slow Burn' is a long instrumental that will get you feeling
epic and pumped." Victor Casillas Valle, The Deli Magazine
"San Francisco's The Spiral
Electric is a psych-rock group with an acid-drenched sound that creeps and crawls
into the recesses of your mind where it stays with you, kinda like those fuzzy college
memories of when shit got weird. Much like the band's predecessor, The Brian Jonestown
Massacre, The Spiral Electric's songs are hypnotic and build into a crescendo of
sound. Lead vocalist Clay Andrews lends the band a distinct sound with his strong,
clear voice and impressive range, anchored by synths, electric guitar riffs, and
steady drumming." Madeleine Key, East Bay Express
