Alphabeat ‘Vacation’ Single Review

Danish fluoro pop group du jour – Alphabeat – is back with a vengeance and for those who feared their demise after The Spell (or to the UK crowd, better known as The Beat Is…) flopped, here’s a sign that there’s plenty more quality pop to come.

‘Vacation’ feels like a sensible return to live instrumentation and that “band” sound of Alphabeat‘s first album. It’s got one of those hooks that translates more effectively in a live gig setting than it would with us sitting in our lounge quietly nodding along.

Take a listen to Alphabeat‘s new single ‘Vacation’:


 
“Every woman, every man put your feet in the sand! And have yourselves a vacation!”

The rest of the forthcoming third studio album is said to be more of a full-bodied 70s disco invasion, as opposed to the 90s glam they were serving with The Spell. Expect for some Kool & The Gang realness.

The new album’s a completely independent affair and while the band’s still shopping for a record label, they’re still happy to keep chugging along and plugging their music to Danish radios the old fashioned way.

Footnotes:

Alphabeat‘s ‘Vacation’ is now out in Europe and the US. Fingers crossed for an Aussie release date.
