ALASKALASKA rose up in parallel with both the South London jazz scene and the post-punk movement of Brixton Windmill, but they’re happy to better know themselves as friends of these movements without committing to any one label. Influences shine through both in a fluid exploration of genre and a tender, always focused lyricism. It’s the methods of Björk, Fever Ray, LCD Soundsystem and Arthur Russell, and the contemporary melodies of Metronomy and Porches that excite them.
New LP 'Still Life' was released on UK-based Marathon Artists in October 2022.
