We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Alcabean’s new song “Still Remember” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP Head Down, which is scheduled to be released on March 16, 2018 through We Are Suburban.
Victor Schack of Alcabean commented on the song: “‘Still Remember’ is about changes. It’s about the nostalgic reflection on what you leave behind, when you make life altering decisions.”
About the band:
Danish noise rock four-piece Alcabean make a welcome return with the release of their forthcoming EP Head Down.
Having already picked up a wealth of support through the release of their 2016 EP Real Time Fiction, Alcabean are gearing up to unleash their fuzz-filled, feedback-laden sound on the UK public once again. Combining elements of 90s alternative indie-rock made popular by the likes of Silversun Pickups, Hum and The Smashing Pumpkins with a contemporary sound produced by bands such as Drenge and Wolf Alice, Alcabean straddle the line skilfully between melancholia and euphoria.
From the raging, grunge-fused blast of raw, impassioned vocals on “Biker Song”, to the swirling, dark splendour of “Chorus”, each track on Head Down is brought together by the emotive, atmospheric vocals of Victor Schack. Metronomic, expertly delivered drum beats are flanked by thudding, driving bass-lines and accented beautifully by effected guitar tones, as songs such as title track “Head Down” and “Running” hit you with their heavy, soaring power, while their single “Still Remember” is a catchy up tempo rock banger that conjuring memories of early Jimmy Eat World.
Addressing a range of topics, the EP may be nostalgic in its 90s-reminiscent sound, but remains entirely current in its outpouring of angst-driven force. Recently released single “Bloody Pose”, for example, tackles the poignant topic of identity confusion and how the constant search for acknowledgment sometimes makes you want to give up.
