What’s this? Alphabeat are back! That sounds familiar, but they really are back again – again. They have just released their second new single. ‘I Don’t Know What’s Cool Anymore’.
What’s it like? Never before has being cool sounded less attractive – if these lot don’t know what it is, then keep us well away from it, we want no part of that shit. This. THIS is where we belong.
And how’s this comeback been going for them, then? First single ‘Shadows‘ has spent 22 weeks in the Top 10 of the Danish airplay chart. And as we ALL know, those Danes have themselves some utterly fabulous taste in pop music. We could call this comeback the very textbook definition of ‘triumphant return’.
What do Alphabeat say about it all? “We have never felt stronger as a band – and as friends. There is so much renewed energy, lust, wildness, friendship, words and melodies we need to get out and when listening to our forthcoming album I think one can clearly sense what fellowship we have together.”
More from Alphabeat? Their new album arrives on November 1st – ‘Don’t Know What’s Cool Anymore’ (they’ve dropped the ‘I’, not us).
