“Electric Pow Wow Drum,” originally by the acclaimed Canadian electro-duo The Halluci Nation (formerly known as A Tribe Called Red), is the first single from Attacca Quartet’s upcoming album REAL LIFE.
Melding the classical and electronic worlds, Attacca Quartet notably worked in the studio on REAL LIFE with GRAMMY Award-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League. On the album, the group — Amy Schroeder [violinist], Domenic Salerni [violinist], Nathan Schram [violist], and Andrew Yee [cellist] — re-envision, reshape, and reimagine tracks originally recorded by some of today’s most influential artists in electronic music, including Flying Lotus, Squarepusher, Louis Cole, Anne Müller, Daedelus, and Mid-Air Thief. Many of these producers, as well as guest collaborator TOKiMONSTA, in turn, contributed new layers to Attacca Quartet’s interpretations. Emphasizing the ability to perform all the tracks live as a four-piece, they implemented distortion, plucked and scraped the strings, tapped, and went so far as to reverse the tape itself.
Formed in 2003, Attacca Quartet present a new paradigm for string quartets in the 21st century. The New York string collective have performed on six acclaimed albums, including Caroline Shaw: Orange for which they garnered a 2020 GRAMMY Award. Receiving widespread critical acclaim from New York Times, NPR, Noisey, and more, The Nation notably praised how the Attacca Quartet “lives in the present aesthetically, without rejecting the virtues of the musical past.” They’ve touched down for performances on four continents. In addition, the musicians of the quartet have collaborated with acclaimed artists such as Björk and James Blake and the quartet even appears in the popular video game Red Dead Redemption 2. They were also featured on the soundtrack for Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle (2016). With 2021’s REAL LIFE, they add a classic twist to a modern sound, defying genres and eras all at once.
