Headed by Lucinda Duarte-Holman and bassist and producer Fraser Rieley, ALASKALASKA formed in 2016 after Duarte-Holman introduced Rieley to her friends Calum Duncan (guitarist), Fraser Smith (saxophonist), and Gethin Jones (drummer). The resulting recordings - early self-titled EP and 2018 singles ‘Meateater’ and ‘Monster’ - combined an appreciation for pop songwriting form with a myriad of sounds, tastes and styles. ALASKALASKA’s idiosyncratic approach grabbed them attention from Pitchfork, The FADER, Noisey, NME, DIY, BBC Radio 1 and beyond, while support slots with fellow genre-dodgers Alvvays, Cigarettes After Sex, Porches and Nilüfer Yanya soon followed.Melding together their disparate influences in off-kilter pop and jazz gives their upcoming debut record the push-pull feeling of a group existing without any boundaries. Not fitting neatly into either the post-punk explosion, which defined their South London home a few years back, or the more recent emergence of a future-facing jazz underground, ALASKALASKA dodged the area’s typicalities. The lyrical potency of the former and the languid, freeform attitude of the latter can be felt across ​The Dots​, but ALASKALASKA paint those influences in their own broad brushstrokes in the same way as Björk, Kate Bush, Arca or Fever Ray before them.ALASKALASKA will release ​The Dots on 3 May before heading out on a headline tour of the U.K. - which includes a headline show at The Green Door Store on 14 May.
