South Londoners ALASKALASKA have announced plans to release their debut album later this year.
‘The Dots’ is due for release on 3rd May through Marathon Artists, and is being previewed with the band’s new single ‘Moon’.
“‘Moon’ is an account of the monthly, cyclical ebbs and flows (pun intended) of my emotional and physical well being,” says the band’s Lucinda Duarte-Holman, of the track. “It is an insight into my neurosis. ‘Moon’ is about PMS.” Fair enough, then.
The band have also announced plans for a UK tour, set to take place following the album’s release. They’ll play six shows across the UK in May, before appearing at Lost Village Festival in August.
14 The Green Door Store, Brighton
15 Omeara, London
16 Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
17 Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds
19 YES, Manchester
20 The Hug And Pint, Glasgow
24 Lost Village Festival, Lincolnshire

The London jazz-pop five-piece present their dreamy debut album, but it comes along with the bite of social commentary.
The track is taken from the group’s forthcoming debut, ‘The Dots’.
