If you like drone-y pop and sweet melodies, look no further – Alagoas are dropping their self-titled debut on November 25, and it’s a combination of all things great in today’s music.
The record starts slowly with the buzzing “Spiderhands,” a eerily enchanting track that launches directly into the spacey “1981.” Throughout the songs of the album, husband and wife duo Wilson and Katherine Brown sweet-talk us into forming an enchanting relationship with them. The songs throughout the album are strung together with the Browns singing in unison, which emphasizes the connection between the two, and lively beats surrounded by intricately woven constructs of sound.
Alagoas convinces on tracks like “Ghosts,” “The Weather” (check out our review on the video here) and “Love on Division,” which let’s us crave more. It especially makes you wonder how they will sound live – and honestly, I myself am a bit sceptic about that, especially since most of the songs are slower. I’m curious to see, where they will go in the future – but with a solid debut, Alagoas made a great first impression.
