ALASKALASKA share new song “Patience”, Debut EP Out September 29th

ALASKALASKA is 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 swirling saxophones to create something musically rich and delightfully intricate. Band leader and 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 an afternoon 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.

Today they release their new single “Patience”. A song inspired by the more pop-leaning side of the Tsonga (or Shangaan) disco movement with a climatic intertwining sax driven finale. It has become a highlight of their live performances and serves as another taste of their brilliant self-titled debut EP – the perfect introduction to their unique brand of off-kilter pop.

ALASKALASKA (EP) is out on September 29th via Marathon Artists’ imprint House Anxiety (the label that introduced the world to King Krule and Courtney Barnett). Limited ticket and 12″ EP bundles are available exclusively from Dice now. Pre-order the EP here. They’re also heading out on a full UK / EU tour supporting Alvvays starting tonight until September 18th.
