With two massive singles and a top 10 album under their belts, the twelve-legged hit machine that is Alphabeat will release a new single 'Boyfriend' on 25 August. One of the stand out moments from their debut album and a high point in their effervescent live shows, 'Boyfriend' looks set to further establish Alphabeat as one of 2008's breakthrough acts.
Alphabeat are Stine Bramsen (vocals), Anders SG (vocals), Anders B (guitar), Rasmus Nagel (keyboards), Anders Reinholdt (bass) and Troels Hansen (drums). Since leaving their native Denmark for these shores last Autumn, they have won over the most hardened cynics with their passionate and energetic live performances. Their singles 'Fascination' and '10,000 Nights' have become fixtures on the airwaves and in the charts, and their debut album This Is Alphabeat had critics searching for superlatives to describe its thoroughbred pop magic.
'Boyfriend' looks set to bring the band even closer to the nation's musical heart. Three stomping minutes of finely-tuned, high-octane pop provide the backdrop to Stine's warning "don't you touch my boyfriend, he's not your boyfriend, he's mine", a line that is destined to reverberate across Britain's dancefloors all Summer long.
Alphabeat will head out on their biggest UK tour to date in October, bringing their irrepressible wonky pop party to 17 cities across the UK. Before that a busy Summer of festival appearances lies ahead, with the band playing Glastonbury, Bestival, V and many others in the UK and Europe.
The fun has only just begun for Alphabeat. Come and join the party.
