Doomsday pop takes another delightful turn in the new three track offering from Los Angeles' Alright Alright.
With a style that has been described as "theme songs from a secret society" (Beatcrave) and "delightfully invasive" (The704), Alright Alright is back to the kind of jangly indie-pop shenanigans they're known for. This time with an extended play digital-only release mined straight out of the hard-scrabble rock & roll mines of Southern California's San Fernando Valley.
You've got "Radio". It's a classic two-minute AA banger with sing-along hooks, so turn that one up.
Included on the B-side is a touching love song to Sweeney's newborn daughter, also AA's cover of Drugstore's "El President", a song originally about the coup d'état ousting of Chilean President Salvador Allende. We saw it slightly differently. Local string musician Kaitlin Wolfberg pushed these tracks into classics territory. Enjoy.
