Space Electric, a band from the land of the midnight Sun, journeyed to the mighty Mojave Desert and discovered a path to the unknown. The album release includes 4 new video releases (I Wanna Know, Dead Eyes, Exit Light and Laniakea) to the 4 singles released upfront of the album. These 9 songs, recorded live in one massive week at Rancho de la Luna, tell stories of absent friends, rabbit holes and gravity on your bones. The founder of Rancho De La Luna, David Catching, is playing lap steel solo in the end of our song Rabbit Holes. We are very honored and proud that this true legend appears on our album.
Laniakea is the immeasurable heaven in Universe and express the supergalactic highway where galaxies are drawn at immense speed to the Great Attractor. An uncertain future awaits.

The band recorded their debut album ´The Great Attractor´ in Barcelona (2019), produced, mixed and mastered by Alejandro Ortiz and Andres Perez of Angel Sound Studio. “The Great Attractor” from Norwegian band Space Electric reveals a solid hard rock groove. Its like a cocktail with hints of Black Sabbath, Lemmy Kilmister and Pearl Jam. With a dense sound -produced, mixed and mastered by the Argentinian Alejandro Ortiz- the track is short and to the point. Great riffs and a driven voice, certainly a great soundtrack for a space mission. Rock Fueguine Magazine – 18/06/2020″.
Kristian, Bjørnar and Jon had played together in Mad Above in the 1990’s but parted ways after the tragic death (suicide) of one of the band members. One of the first songs in the new band, Exit Light, was a tribute to the lost band member Chritian Westbye. The music Kristian had written connected immediately with the whole band, and before long Bjørnar had written a beautiful eulogy and the song was finished. Exit Light was the first time recorded in 2010 in Luna Lounge studio in Oslo. Tragedy hit again with a burglary in our studio. All music and backups were stolen and never seen again. It is a great honor to finally release this song on our new album.
