ALASKALASKA Announces New Album “Still Life”, Shares Title Track
- South London-based electro-pop band ALASKALASKA, consisting of Lucinda Duarte-Holman (vocals/guitar), Fraser Rieley (bass), Calum Duncan (guitar), Gethin Jones (drums), Fraser Smith (saxophone), and Joe Webb (synths/ keyboards), announced their sophomore album “Still Life” would be released on October 14, 2022.
The album is their first LP in three years since the 2019 debut album “The Dots”.
From the album, the band released the title track as the second single, following “Growing Up Pains (Unni's Song)”.
The track was written by Lucinda Duarte-Holman, Fraser Rieley and Jas Shaw. The accompanying music video was directed by Jacek Zmarz.
The band said of the song, “Still Life asks, is what is supposed to connect us on a worldwide scale being used more for vanity/ego, distraction or even surveillance/control? 'Look at it breed, modern greed…'. It's a bit of a cautionary tale, much like 1984…if you get my drift. Still though, there are glimmers of hope - 'I've got the seed in my pocket….' as in I've got seeds to sow, seeds to grow. Small gestures can make big changes.”
