South London quartet Alphabetic release The Fall on the 9th of October. The Fall will be taken from the band’s debut LP to be released in January 2016. The release will come on the same day as the band’s only show this winter, supporting Bombay Bicycle Club (DJ set) and Racing Glaciers at The Garage, London. The rest of this winter will be spent getting down in the studio putting the finishing touches to the record.
The band’s sound is built around the singing partnership of Walter Heale and Rebecca Lever. They have been compared to ambient pop acts such as The Cure & Talk Talk while also having the dance savvy beats of mid 80s acts such as Talking Heads. Produced by bassist Raphael Chesterman, the song illuminates the band’s ability for undeniable hooks and smart electronic production which takes in the entire frequency range. Remixes will come via the respected Petit Records (www.petitrecords.co.uk
Alphabetic were dreamt up from a Motel bed in the Caribbean. They were worn out and tired of their musical routines. There was only one thing to do: Retreat and rework the songs they had written as teenagers into the music they now loved as adults. The band have gone from strength to strength this year playing around the UK and appearing at The Great Escape Festival while winning over supports on Hype Machine and securing some major television syncs.
