Electrobuddha started life in a small studio apartment in Solna, Stockholm, Sweden in 2003. Mark had an idea to fuse rock guitars with dance music. Now though the sound has evolved and with the addition of band members, Electrobuddha are playing out and out rock music. It’s hard to put a label on the band in terms of who they sound like but you can hear Primal Scream, The Stones and Kula Shaker in there. One Glasgow newspaper described 1st homemade album as it's ‘like The Rolling Stones meets The Beta band with Hendrix on decks!’
Electrobuddha as a live band began life around March 2012. Mark was waiting until he had enough well honed tunes to take into the live arena. He saw an advert online for a female bass player. Silja was first to join Electrobuddha. She knew of a drummer called Graeme Proctor and he was happy to sign up too. So with Mark on rhythm guitar and vocals, Silja on bass and Graeme on drums all that was needed now was a lead guitarist. A couple of lead guitarists later and we find ourselves with Chris Cunningham doing the honours and new bassist Graham Brooker.
The band has just finished recording their debut album called ‘Evolution'. They are racking up gigs averaging one or two per month in their local city of Glasgow and always go down warmly at gigs. Punters have been enthusiastic and the band are very optimistic about the future and are hoping to secure more lucrative gigs. Enjoy the sound of Electrobuddha and thanks for reading and listening, but most of all, download, and come along to our gigs
Electrobuddha - origins of the name
The story of the Electrobuddha name is quite an interesting one. Well in July 1999 I moved to Stockholm, sweden and my girlfriend at the time took me to a popular department store there called Indiska. Whilst there I saw a Buddhist Om symbol and was fascinated by it and wanted to learn more. After some Internet research on Om I decided to get a tattoo of the symbol on my upper right arm. So I was hooked a little on the Om symbol and had researched the Buddhist philosophies a little. The very first few tunes I produced were entirely made using computer software so the music was very electro sounding so Electrobuddha, the name was born. I also try to write songs with a message be it a social teaching, love, loss etc. songs should have a message I feel and leave the listener thinking about the lyrics and pondering life!!
