Tel Aviv, Israel-native singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Omer Goren picked up the guitar at thirteen years old forging a deep love for music which inspires and motivates him still today.
“My aspiration in my musical creation is for the listeners to experience a multi dimensional journey of harmony, melody and rhythm that will take them to a different world.”
A veteran of the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), once discharged from his service, in 2012 he immediately fell back into music, creating his moniker, Electrockrat, a name which pays homage to his multi-genre style which infuses indie-rock, electro-rock, space-rock, alternative, chill, and a touch of psychedelic. (We can confirm all of these!)
With iconic influences like Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Muse, Enigma and others, he has released several singles which include Sometimes, Fade Away, Ready To Leave, and today’s subject, the etheric and down-tempo, Place To Go.
With an intro that feels like a chilled-out version of Phil Collins’ 1985 hit, Take Me Home, the difference here is that this track both starts—and stays—chilled out. A subtle kick, snare and high-hat play beneath Goren’s soft, ambient vocals creating an intriguing melody which easily manages to draw listeners into the light and surreal emotional concoction. The song apexes at 2:26 where all components represent in full, bringing us to what could certainly be called the “Electrockrat sound”. It’s smooth, tastefully melancholy, and compelling.
