Back in the Summer of 2017, four musicians joined forces to create a sensational indie-pop project. It was a whirlwind meeting that saw two Spanish and two English musicians finding common ground in music, creating out a unique sound that was built upon three principal objectives; to make music that consisted of a thumping blend of slick rhythms and epic hooks, to bring a pop-rock live-action energy to their groove, and to write lyrics that told stories of hope and overcoming life’s challenges.
Fast forward four years and Alpha Circle have truly realised their goals, breaking into the spotlight with their new single, ‘Phoenix and Butterflies’, a titanic pop-rock anthem built on heavy rock melodies and driven pop harmonies.
Released only a few days ago, the new single sees the band continuing to impress, lashing out with a fresh and wonderfully diverse sound that shines with elements of pop, rock, country, and timeless funk. A single that sees Alpha Circle pushing their sound into more expansive, sonic territories, ‘Phoenix and Butterflies’ builds upon the band’s bold and exciting live shows, bringing raw energy to the sweeping atmospherics and intoxicating alt-rock sounds. Thematically, the song is a heartfelt love letter that speaks to our innermost feelings, starting with that vibrant moment of love at first sight and slowly evolving into a full narrative that details a fierce and passionate relationship.
It’s a beautiful thing, and it's perfectly backed by the song’s instrumentals, layering heartfelt lyrics and textured, cinematic sounds that are wonderfully modern, while also timeless and undeniably familiar. A perfect illustration of Alpha Circle’s sound, it’s a single that demands to be heard and never fails to impress.
