Automatik Eden is a highly exotic Indie-Electronica power duo out of Los Angeles, California; consisting of vocalist Cela Scott and guitarist, vocalist and drummer David Crocco. While working behind the scenes with artists like Eminem, Beck and Incubus, Cela and David decided to form their own band to create music. David worked as an engineer and producer for many artists. His post-production engineering skills have been in demand for quite a while, having worked with a huge number of impressive acts, in various genres. Performers David has worked with include everyone from Dr. Dre and Busta Rhymes to Nickelback and System Of A Down. All of whom are extremely successful artists and groups. While listening to the band’s self-titled EP, one can hear the influence of The White Stripes and The Kills. But make no mistake, Automatik Eden has their own distinct sound.
Automatik Eden is by far one of the most unique indie-electronica bands I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. I took a liking to quite a few of Automatic Eden’s songs for these reasons:
“Gold to Straw,” is the kind of song that puts you in a somber mood and helps you relax after a long day at work or school. It make you feel as if your head is in the clouds and there is not a care in the world. I enjoy listening to music that helps me cool down after a long, busy day.
“The Agency,” has an extremely catchy intro with a lot of heavy guitar riffs. I also enjoy the sound of Cela’s vocals in this song more than others. She has such a powerful sound, that this track makes me want to get things done and be successful.
“Citadel,” is a song about never giving up, regardless of the external and external demons you might have to face. This track spoke to me personally because I can relate to it. I like the fact that these two will never give up on what they believe in.
If you enjoyed listening to Automatik Eden’s self-titled EP, I suggest you take a look at some similar artists and tracks listed below;
Radiohead – “Karma Police”
Massive Attack – “Teardrop”
The Kills – “Future Starts Slow”
Nine Inch Nails – “Head Like A Hole”
The video for “Gold To Straw” is such a work of art. The dreamy atmosphere is a throwback to the golden days of every young soul on the planet and I really enjoyed the dark persona they portrayed in the video. It’s absolutely shocking that the video only has a little over 300 views. Visually, Automatik Eden has a lot to offer. Both Cela and Dave have put a lot of thought and effort into both their personal and stage appearance. For this reason, I can see a lot of good things happening to this duo in the future. They are truly in it for the passion and love of music and that’s hard to come across these days.
