Indie disco pop quartet continue 2015 as they left 2014
Alphabetic make music that is retro cool. New single Human Too features eighties pop Hi-Hats and synths mix with Human League-esque call and response vocals. This isn’t a tribute act however there is plenty of indie disco to make this sound vibrant and contemporary. Human Too could easily have featured on the Drive soundtrack.
Last year Alphabetic released Good Lovers, this was four minutes of synth pop greatness, that suggested that “Friends don’t always make good lovers”. Whether this is true or not is debateable, but Alphabetic put forward an interesting case.
Rumour has it that an album is in the pipeline for later this year, produced by man of the moment Toby McLaren. It looks set to showcase their retro pop sound that has a dance sensibility. Next month you can catch them at the Great Escape. This looks like a gig you can’t afford to miss!
