The Viper Label is pleased to present a stunning debut album by a new three piece group from Liverpool called Otaku No Denki ( Chris McCabe / Joey Cannon / Dean Salleyman ).
‘ The Future Played Backwards’ is an outstanding debut from this young group who perform their particular take on Electronica, producing innovative, melodic, and experimental sounds, taking the listener on a journey through their sonicand cinematic worlds.
Nearest comparisons could be- Eno, Kraftwerk, Neu, John Barry and Aphex Twin , Otaku No Denki are part of the resurgence of great Liverpool music happening at the moment ( From The Zutons- Chris McCabe is the brother of ‘The Zutons’ frontman Dave McCabe – to Ladytron ) Their own unique contemporary sound stands alone. The understated beauty of ‘The Way the Future Was’ and the dark sonic whirlpool that is ‘Tower’ for example.Album co- produced by Paul Hemmings from The La’s + Lightning Seeds.
