alexalone, have dropped their new single “Electric Sickness.” The track is lifted from their ALEXALONEWORLD, which drops on August 13th via Polyvinyl. alexalone will hit the road with Lomelda; for these performances, members of both ensembles will perform in alexalone as well as Lomelda. Previous singles included “Ruins” and “Eavesdropper.”

“Electric Sickness” is also the band’s very first song as a group. “alexalone started when my friend Jeff Mertz asked me if I would do the score for his documentary Slow Burn, which is about gentrification and the highway through the lens of Austin bbq folks,” Alex Peterson shares. “‘Electric Sickness’ was the first song I wrote with the intent of using it for the doc, and as a result it became the first ‘alexalone’ song.”

It also gives a proper introduction to ALEXALONEWORLD, an album crafted out of the past year’s isolation and its impact on one’s way of thinking. The songwriting itself happened between 2013-2019, while recording began in 2019 and carried over into 2020. Moody, introspective, with bursts of hope and rebelliousness throughout, the album reflects upon the world’s injustices and incongruities, influenced by the works of Tolkien, Murakami, and genre disruptors like Low, Boris, and Yo La Tengo.
