Since forming in 2007, The Electric Mess have developed into an exciting and tight rock n' roll band, led by an androgynous
and dynamic lead singer, Chip Fontaine (aka Esther Crow).
The Huffington Post has said "The Electric Mess entertain as a unit and still keep the music heads happy with their solid
musicianship, a "too cool for words" repertoire, and one of the most electrifying front men I have ever seen."
Their self-titled debut album, featuring the songs "You've Become a Witch," "Trash Talkin' Woman," and "She Has a Funny
Walk," received excellent reviews and made numerous "Best of 2010" lists. All 13 of its tracks have been heard on the radio, both in the U.S. and internationally, including Rodney Bingenheimer's "Rodney on the ROQ" (KROQ, Los Angeles), "Little Steven's Underground Radio Show" (Sirius/XM), and "Nights with Alice Cooper" (syndicated radio show).
Shindig! said: "There are a wide range of influences, including British Invasion, 60's garage, R&B, and psych, but it sure ain't a mess... a very tight unit with bunch of strong tunes possessing a fine, melodic edge. This is a fine debut."
All-Music Guide: "**** of 5 stars: "(The Electric Mess) have the vintage approach and feel, they can write great songs, and
the band isn't afraid to hit ‘em hard and make their music move... Anyone who wonders if there's anything left to be said on the garage revival scene ought to give The Electric Mess' debut a listen."
In 2011, Rowed Out Records (UK) issued a 7", featuring "You've Become a Witch/Trash Talkin' Woman" and "You've
Become a Witch" was featured on the CD/LP compilation "Hipsters Vol. 3" (read about it on modculture.com) on Acid Jazz Records (UK), May, 2012

All 13 of its songs have been played on radio stations across the U.S. and on inter-national radio stations, including Japan, England, Canada, Germany, France, Scotland, Slovenia, and Spain. It was re-leased on vinyl June, 2012, from Groovie Records, and is also available on CD and iTunes download.
