About Desperate Electric

Dubbed ‘electro soul brilliance’, the Montana based duo, Desperate Electric, ‘enlists a perfect combination of live instrumentation with killer beats and all the bells and whistles under the kitchen sink’ (Indie Pulse Music, 2020). Consisting of Ben Morris (guitar, keys, vocals, production) and Kayti Korte (bass, vocals), the pair fuse their many influences to create a sound that’s both contemporary and nostalgic of past decades of funk, rock ‘n roll, and soul.

Formerly known as DASH, Desperate Electric had a rocky start. The twosome began DASH with the intent to create and maintain a 4-piece rock band. During their first year as a band they released their debut album, ‘SUPER’, and began to tour regionally. Two weeks prior to their second regional tour they found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly without a drummer. Unable to find a replacement two weeks away from the tour, and rather than cancel the dates, they worked to find an alternate solution. Using his experience producing beats in college, Ben took on the task of creating MIDI drum tracks for their entire catalogue. By the end of the tour they found themselves also without a bass player, and upon returning to their hometown of Bozeman, MT their rock ‘n roll band was stripped down to just the two of them.

The following week, they recorded the first music that would foreshadow their current sound—the ‘Desperate Electric’ EP; named from the experience of going electronic out of pure desperation and sheer willpower to keep the show on the road.  Desperate Electric continues to tour the country and put music out, with the release of their album ‘Still Not Giving You Up’ in May 2020, and several additional singles. Stay tuned for their next release in 2021.
