Alesund - Pins and Needles

LCM Song Of The Day: ‘Pins & Needles’ - Alesund

We head to Bristol today to meet dreamscape pioneers Ålesund. The band have recently released their debut EP ‘Shift & Flux’ on 15th Feb 2019. The EP is a collection of beautifully crafted songs with a sparse, Nordic undercurrent. Immersive sound; rolling drums; intricate guitar work; and soaring vocals, Our featured track today is the fourth single from their new EP ‘Pins & Needles’. We love the atmospheric vocals full of reverb accompanied by piano. It slowly builds throughout the track to a fitting climax. We think there are shades of Kate Bush.

Thanks to Shay Rowan for the recommendation.

Alesund are an atmospheric force from the trip hop heartland that create expansive, emotive and exhilarating sound worlds.It is available to download, purchase and stream on all major platforms. Their singles have been greatly received by fans and critics over the past few months and they are excited to finally share the full EP. After a busy year of studio work, a summer of festivals, a string of sell out shows and a plays on BBC Bristol, BBC Introducing and a stream of regional radio shows they are already busying themselves on the follow up record.

“Comprising of Bristol scene stalwarts Alba Torriset (Toyface); Lloyd Starr (Madilan); Paul Hopkins (Little Thief, Sam Green and the Midnight Heist); and Carlos Coronado (Loralie). Ålesund’s name was inspired by front woman Alba’s Norwegian heritage and is the name of the beautiful west coast town her father grew up in. The scenery of the fjords and mountains seemed to reflect the atmospheric music the band were making (pronounced ‘Aww-le-sund’)”
