ALASKA CAMPUS ‘When We Were Young’, out 10th September‏

UK ALT-CREW ALASKA CAMPUS SET LOOSE EXICITING DEBUT MINI-ALBUM!

Taking the artistry of Bombay Bicycle Club, the groove of Foals, and the enticing texturing of The Smiths, all capped off with tinges of the oft-kilter phrasing of Pavement, Alaska Campus display a sound that pitches impressive dynamic variation. With earnest song-writing and killer tunes, the band are set to bulldoze their way to the upper echelons of the UK music scene.

Hailing from Herfordshire, the alternative foursome Alaska Campus were originally formed in college by Ryan (Vocals/Guitar/Synth) and Daniel (Lead guitar/Synth). Initially, the dynamic duo started out with a post-hardcore sound, but soon broke free of the confines of genre classification, aided by the recruitment of Liam O’Sullivan (Drums) and Liam Fossey (Bass). The newly conceived four-piece marched forward and began to craft their sound, playing a number of shows throughout the South. Soon after, the sprightly quartet released their very first record and EP ‘Keep Yourself Warm’ in the Summer of 2011. The release chalked up strong praise from many sectors of the underground press, and backed by playing a series of high profile shows (notably Bombay Bicycle Club’s official after show), the band began to ascend.

Already making new friends and treading new pathways, Alaska Campus are braced to climb again with the launch of their gripping debut mini-album ‘When We Were Young’. With a rousing knack for addictive melody, the band have created a gem of a record. From the contagious refrain and buoyant flavourings of ‘You Me And The Sun’ through to the animated angular indie-rock of ‘Mon Reve’, the wired alternative combo are poised to be a true force within the scene for many years to come.
