ALASKALASKA is an art-pop 6 piece from London. They make music that blends jazz, disco, funk and R&B. Band leader and vocalist Lucinda twists brooding and thoughtful lyrics, into melodies compared to Warpaint, Dirty Projectors or Talk Talk. The band has built a cult following through a handful of low-key London shows.
Today, the band has released 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.
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). The band are currently on a full UK / EU tour supporting Alvvays starting tonight until September 18th.
