Recorded in the Meadow studio at the edge of Ireland’s Wicklow Mountains, Alarmist’s debut LP ‘Popular Demain’ is an almost orchestral expanse of colour and meandering lines, tightly wrought around a rhythmic core of double drums and guitars.
A natural evolution from the sound established in their previous EPs, the album carries on the genre-defying fusion of influences that has gained the band a growing international following.
Primitive Korgs, Casios and tape-degraded voice samples find themselves densely packed with an organic mass of winds, percussion and prepared piano, forming a soundworld that somehow finds common ground for jazz-infused math-rock, warped experimental pop melodies and brutalist slabs of pulsing electronics.
