With their debut EP A Different Kind Of Perfect lined up for release on March 18th it's looking like 2016 will be a good year for Aberdeen based outfit Alkanes.
The five-track EP A Different Kind Of Perfect kicks off with the moody, atmospheric guitar-driven Pulling Teeth and it's a definite leaning to being heavier than some of their contemporaries.
Persistance To Existence on the other hand has more of a Chilli Peppers feel to it. A nicely balanced rock track that will have multi-genre appeal. The pefect pick as the single.
Third track in and A Different Kind Of Perfect punches you in the ears from note one, reminding me of a favourite band of old from Wales called Budgie. Whilst I cite the previous track as my favourite pick for a single, this one's my favourite of the five. It's currently on repeat here in the dog-house.
The EP rounds off with the choppy Brown Tape and a Zepplin-es que vocal that delights whilst Music In The Grooves for me leans more towards an Audioslave vibe.
All proceeds from the sale of the single goes to Diabetes Scotland, and pleasure it brings to the table will go directly to your aural sensory receptors!
