aliensdontringdoorbells is the exciting new band that crosses boundaries of geo-locations, genres and more to craft their narrative-style release, ‘STORY’.
Whilst this band may be keeping their identities relatively under wraps, with only the phrase “we are amongst you” appearing in social media bios, their mission statement during latest release ‘STORY’ could not be clearer.
In an impressive feat of storytelling akin to the greatest names in the rock pantheon such as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, ‘Story’ tells the tale of a childhood spent in the sun. The song sees this international band take the universal theme of childhood innocence and translate the feeling into a touching and accessible narrative. aliensdontringdoorbells convey a truly timeless sound, proving that it’s possible to reinvent the mainstream, and indeed the wheel, long after your teenage years have passed into blissful memory.
When it comes to music, the band cites OneRepublic, Maroon 5 and Weezer amongst their influences. Their sound is an amalgamation of pop, rock, jazz, prog and swing. Nowhere is this melting pot of influences more apparent, or more successful, than on ‘Story’. The lyrics have a timeless feel, emphasised by a dramatic music video which shows images of a child’s lifetime from a different period, as well as a musical landscape painted with a brush which, although wouldn’t sound out of place for the rock charts of the 70s, paints a picture of sound that is moving and relevant now.
