Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton form ‘Electric Guest,’ the duo from Los Angeles who released their debut ‘Mondo’ album on May 14th. They are due to release their first single; ‘This Head I Hold’ soon. Before the first 30 seconds of this song have played, you’ll be caught up in the catchiness of the upbeat happy go lucky melody. The funky vibe it emits is hardly surprising from sounds that mix lively high-hitting vocals comparable to Gnarles Barkley with an electro-acoustic feel similar to Broken Bells. With the backing of Danger Mouse, who produced their album, This Head I Hold is bound to be a hit later this year. Fans should also check out the video below; Asa, whose brother, Jorma, who is part of the Lonely Island, shows his own sense of humor, in the surprisingly comedic video.
