ALASKALASKA are an art-pop 6-piece from London. They make beautiful, groove-laden music that seamlessly blends jazz, disco, funk and R&B into a bold and playful sound uniquely their own; synthetic beats play alongside live drums, delayed guitars and shimmering saxophones to create something musically rich and delightfully intricate.
Band leader and principle vocalist Lucinda twists brooding and introspective lyrics - akin to the words of Arthur Russell - into infectious melodies reminiscent of Warpaint, Dirty Projectors or Talk Talk, which demand repeat listens and could as easily soundtrack a wistful evening alone as they could a party. They've built a cult following and reputation as extraordinary performers through a handful of low-key London shows.
'Bitter Winter' / 'Familiar Ways' is released via House Anxiety / Marathon Artists on Monday 22nd May - full EP coming summer 2017.
"a band that have grafted their way to the forefront of London’s music scene with incessant gigging and impassioned live shows. A mixture of venomous and calculated, hypnagogic and filthy, it’s hard to think of the last time a band sounded this fully formed on their first release." So Young Magazine
