Thus, it's fitting that the duo would dub themselves as such; Electric Umbilical Cord (EUC) focuses on creating a sound and vibe contrary to that of Southern California's laid back lifestyle of sunshine and pop- a moody concoction of sexy synthesizer and drum beats "We develop moody atmospheric music to create or illicit emotion in people," says Thatcher. "Our main goal is to create an atmosphere that removes the listeners from their current environment." ........

Breathing life back into the dance party, Electric Umbilical Cord are not afraid to let loose musica...Breathing life back into the dance party, Electric Umbilical Cord are not afraid to let loose musically or physically. Shunning the standard instrumental setup and instead employing three synths, electronics, three microphones, and and a shitload of sass, they surpass the boundaries enforced by everyday bands to unleash their own brand of synthedelic supertunes. Brutus Sterling, Niles Watchtower, and Ager Nahsty equal sexy synth times three. Their melodies, loops and complex beats are whimsical and catchy while musically adept. Something about their songs just gets your toe tapping. But you can’t fully realize Electric Umbilical Cord’s effect on their fans until you attend one of their raging dance parties, a.k.a. shows. You never know what they might be wearing or which personas they might adopt for the evening. Their music brings out the dance freak in everyone; I dare you to try not to move.
