Blaenavon - Alice Come Home

A crushing six-minute trip which shows the band as being equally capable of crafting devastating, sprawling journeys

‘Orthodox Man’ and ‘Let’s Pray’, two of the singles that previewed Blaenavon’s debut album ‘That’s Your Lot’, saw the band cramming in bundles of melody into three-minute indie pop songs that fully and unashamedly showcased the band’s ability to write a cracking pop song. ‘Alice Come Home’, the latest track to preview the record, trades this immediacy for a crushing six-minute trip which shows the band as being equally capable of crafting devastating, sprawling journeys. Ben Gregory sounds as crazed and passionate as he ever has on the new single, and in showing a different side of themselves in the process, Blaenavon have become even more fascinating.
