Alphabetic has been slowly building up a dedicated following since 2014, when they played a number of shows including a five night stint at Secret Cinema’s production of ‘Back to The Future’.
Their sound, built around the singing partnership of Walter Heale and Becca Lever, fuses ambient pop with the dance savvy beats of mid 80’s disco and soul to create an enrapturing live sound, driven forward by the animated and energetic drummer Jon Baxter.
Following on from ‘Good Lovers‘, their first single from their forthcoming album and produced by Toby McLaren (Led Bib, The Heavy, Kelis), is ‘Human Too’.
Once again, the band is offering up an innovative day and night version of the latest release. The day version is a synth-ridden slow-drive track, whilst the night version is a 90’s new jack remix, courtesy of bassist and synthesist Raph.
Have a listen to the day version below:
Alphabetic is a perfect example of a band that can make waves despite having a shoestring budget.
You can catch Alphabetic at The Great Escape in April.
