There is more than one artist with this name.
1) US psych garage band with at least one 7" on the Lecasver imprint; 1969's Blue On Green/Pick And Shovel.
2) In the autumn of 2006, The Touch members gathered. Olov and Johan who at the time were doing sunshine pop, met with Andreas who had been making house music for several years. Then the trio met Lina, who was deeply involved with the club scene, and had then en route to their music-making journey as an electronic band quartet.
Early experiments by The Touch consisted of 70's disco pollinated by samples of "Perversion for profit" -admonitions, and a Margo Guryan cover in a tech house take. Early tracks "Heart of the city" and later "Le Night Dominator" then caught the attention of DJ Nibc, owner of dance label Trunkfunk, who then released their debut 12" single entitled "Xtra Energy".The Touch played venues such as Berns Salonger and Debaser in Stockholm, By: Larm in Oslo, La Fleche D'or in Paris, Vega in Copenhagen and Fabric in London, and later on Pachita in New York.
Beneath the calm waters past few years, The Touch had been working undercurrent on new materials for their big comeback. The collaboration between the immense musical craft of Andreas, Johan’s unfailing visionary approach for The Touch, married with the clash of harsh but tender voices of Olov and Lina, have now emerged beyond surface. Their latest single track "Sermon", has now been featured in Kitsuné Maison Compilation 11.
Quoting part Kitsuné owner Gildas, "Sermon" breathes the deficient in oxygen air of a dystopical atmosphere, and tells the tale of a civilization on the fringe of collapse. You could just call it a Kraftwerkesque tune about brokenheartedness, never putting The Touch's devotion of Dionyciac disco into any doubt.
