Following the release of two full length albums, and two 7″ singles, two nationwide tours, (and one in Europe) K recording artists Desolation Wilderness have ceased to be a group. The leader of the gang, Nic Zwart, has already recorded his new solo project called Electric Sunset.
With Rock & Roll swagger applied to synthetic rhythms and ringing keyboards, Nic wanted to create music that was both propulsive and dream-like. Fitting that Electric Sunset took shape as he moved from Olympia back to San Francisco, the city where he was born – that crazy and beautiful metropolis of weirdos, models and rockers. The debut self-titled album will be out on K in September 2010.
