Introducing: ALASKALASKA

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,” the lead track from their debut EP, and “Familiar Ways“, are the perfect introduction to their brand of off-kilter pop.
