The band comments on “City Girl“: “It’s a song about romance. About meeting a fantastic someone that you really want to sleep with and hang out with but you know you won’t ever get the chance. What can you do? You just get yourself a drink and move on.”
Dictator Ship! A frenetic Rock’n’Roll quartet channeling their inner obsession of 60’s Soul and Doo-Wop, inspired by early giants such as Sam & Dave, Sly & The Family Stone, Jackie Wilson and The Platters. Their live act is often described as a combination of the raging sound of The Sonics, the discontent attitude of MC5 and the pure stamina of Elvis Presley in Las Vegas.
Dictator Ship released their debut album “Your Favorites” on The Sign Records in 2020.
“Electric Jihad” is a step up from the debut album in every single way, with more harmonies in the vocals and more structure in the guitars. It’s also a reflection of how the band feels about the society they live in.
The album “Electric Jihad” was produced by Stefan Brändström (Gatuplan, Märvel, Side Effects, Satan Takes A Holiday, The Holy Ghost) and the band in The Dustward Studio, Stockholm. Stefan also mixed and mastered the record.
