The band will also be heading out on the road with Hot Chip at the end of the year.

South London band ALASKALASKA have announced for a handful of November headline shows.

The band, who released their debut album ‘The Dots’ earlier this year, will kick things off with a show at Oxford’s Jericho Tavern, before their headline shows finish at London’s XOYO.

They’ll then head out to mainland Europe with dance-pop legends Hot Chip for fourteen shows.

That’s not all, either: they’ve also shared their new video for ‘Sweat’. Speaking of the video, singer Lucinda Duarte-Holman has said: “It’s supposed to be a visual metaphorical representation for sex, without being explicit. It’s hard to come by a video for a song about something that’s is so intimate and not involve some form of nudity or crass elements. Its vulnerable but it’s also ‘tongue and cheek’- being taken for a ride in a car with the top down. That’s a pretty romantic scene in my opinion…”
