Alphas album tracks

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd give my band Alphas a bit of a plug and try and get some feedback on our recordings.  We've been playing sporadic gigs over the last 8-9 months but have been concentrating on recording an album with three tracks below.

https://soundcloud.com/alphas-aberdeen/terminal

We're hoping to pick things up in the next few months with finishing and releasing the recording, touring but also getting some gigs sorted here first.  Hope you like the tracks but thanks for listening regardless.

Had a quick listen and I like DNA, nice and poppy. It's flows really well and the production really suits the song.

 

Then disaster struck on "Terminal" when Britpop trumpets appeared in the chorus and I felt a bit sick. When are you guys playing live next? Are the (keyboard) trumpets part of the live sound?

Cheers Jan. Terminal is probably the odd one out of all the tracks and we kind of realised it was a bit daft so decided to stuck with trumpets! They're not part of the live sound though and if anything that song comes across a bit rockier at gigs. Nothing confirmed in terms of gigs at the moment but likely we'll have something arranged in about a months time. Thanks again for having a listen though.

I liked Revolutions, I did not like Terminal as recorded - it's not a bad tune but I don't like the trumpets and the gang vox don't really fit for me.

The overall sound is good though, i'd come and see you play.

Im probably bias here, but i love Terminal, its a great tune and i really like the trumpets!! Andy's voice sounds great as well.

 

Only thing is there is not enough growling bass from you andy!!

Cheers for the comment! Next gig for us is at the Moorings on the 25th, which should be a good one. Some linkages for further updates from us:

Well its taken us long enough but after lots more recording, re-editing and mixing we're moving closer to getting things released.  Just wanted to post up some tracks that are going to be on our upcoming album so any feedback would be welcome.  Here Comes The Burn is going to be released as a single in April though.

We're finally going to be releasing our album A New Fire on the 25 Sept. Due to a few circumstances we've decided to put it out as a free download rather delay any further so will be putting it up on Bandcamp then and will likely look at having some physical copies at gigs.

All the tracks are now available to listen at www.soundcloud.com/alphaslive. Positive or negative comments/feedback always appreciated.
