PUTTING MINDS IN A FIZZ
Coast band Electrik Lemonade are shaking up their good-vibe music to put positivity front of mind, as well as leading you to feet-first delirium
Since their inception in 2010, Electrik Lemonade have been bringing the funk. The seven-piece band are all about creating danceable music that induces good times.
The outfit, fronted by Ashley “Muffins” Dean, are ready to do just that when they headline the free Think Well Be Well festival this weekend.
Playing alongside talented musicians Mayan Fox, Jahkaya, The Genes, Jackson James Smith and Scott Dalton, Muffins says the free concert aims to raise awareness of the role of psychology in positive mental health.
“It’s a good thing to support because we are all about positivity,” he says.
“Everyone has their own walk in life. Everyone has experienced issues with mental health through friends and family. People need to be more aware of it. If you are in trouble, it’s OK to speak up.”
Planning on bringing their token good vibes along to the free event, Electrik Lemonade say they have been busy spreading their charm to music lovers far and wide.
“We have been touring a lot; we just got back from playing seven shows at the Airlie Beach Music Festival,” says Muffins.
Last week the band also released a brand new single titled Ain’t You Something.
“It’s a really funky tune with hip hop vibes,” says Muffins.
“We are releasing a fivetrack EP in January next year, which is full of the same sort of stuff.”
Sure to get your hips shaking, Muffins says Electrik Lemonade plan on presenting the new EP like a themed record.
“We want everything to work together to paint a whole picture,” he says.
Having shared stages with the likes of Sticky Fingers, Ash Grunwald, Bonjah, The Delta Riggs, Kingswood and Stonefield, Electrik Lemonade are focusing on spreading more happy vibes in 2015.
“It’s all about bringing the funk and spreading the good vibes,” says Muffins.
“We want to get more people riding the good vibe train.”
Think Well Be Well, Broadwater Parklands, Southport, Saturday, 10am-4pm.
