In 2008 Swiss indie-pop-combo Electric Blanket made quite an impression with its charming single «My Eyes my Heart». The song was chosen for «Sounds! Summer Hit» by Swiss National Radio DRS3 and even made it into rotation at Berlin based
Radio Station MotorFm. Now, with its new album «How Much Peanut Butter», the band takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride; From the easiness
of «My Eyes My Heart» to the anger of «Blood In My Face» back to the innocence of title song «How Much Peanut Butter». Out of purring to growling guitars, Lo-Fi Synths, joyous drums and handclaps, Electric Blanket conjures a refreshingly heads-
trong soundscape. In the epicenter, singer Helenka struggles for happiness. After the electronic approach on its first album «It's Ok It's Not Ok» (2006), the band was up for a more spontaneous take. So the songs for «How Much Peanut Butter» were written in a very simple, Lo-Fi-way by use of a guitar and a Casio-Kids-
Keyboard. This still reflects a lot in the final album. Especially perky accrued the title song «How Much Peanut Butter». Helenka & guitarrist Patrick wrote and recorded the song
along with keyboarder and longtime friend Oli Kuster during a live radio show. They even integrated the vacuum cleaner of the passing cleaning crew and what arose, pleased so much, that it had to be on the album.
With their 12 track album «How Much Peanut Butter» Electric Blanket create a substantial and soothing universe of confi- dence, which is going to delight many hearts.
