ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
First band ever signed on Massive Attack's label Melankolic, which the slogan « Glad to be sad« seems to have been created for, Alpha soon fulfil the magnificent promises made in Bristol in 1995, on Andy Jenks and Corin Dingley's first encounter. In 1997, their debut album, the well-entitled Come from Heaven, manages to operate a delicate synthesis between pop classicism of the 60's and the modernity of contemporary productions. In this album, Alpha acutely alludes to the greatest songwriters and arrangers of the past (Lee Hazlewood, Scott Walker, Jimmy Webb or Burt Bacharach), without ever yielding to the facilities of sympathetic nostalgia or retro-futurism. Quickly, the list of their admirers looks like a Who's Who of the international pop scene : David Bowie, Radiohead, Pulp, or Madonna all rave about Come from Heaven, and eventually start on collaborations with the duet.

After the release in 1998 of the remix album Pepper, it takes Alpha three years to return at their best. On their second album, The Impossible Thrill, Andy and Corin continue with the work started on Come from Heaven by enriching their musical palette with organic sounds and mixing strings to the most relevant samples.

Two years went by, full of events. With the end of Melankolic, the outfit is left isolated, and from now on exclusively depends on itself. Alpha takes advantage of what could have been a restraint to assert their spirit of independance and tie new bonds, notably with France where they undertake fruitful collaborations with some artists (Avia) and Catalogue, As usual, Andy and Corin crafted Star Gazing in their own home studio, in an intimate atmosphere disturbed only by a few births and other moves... Carrying on their work of sonic exploration and experimentation, they recorded about fifty tracks before proceeding to a strict selection. The outcome is strikingly coherent.

Now Alpha release 'Lost in a garden of clouds', Reviewed as possibly the best album from Alpha - Magic France. Challenging all boundaries of the Alpha sound this album takes you through a sounds cape of life.
