Alphabeat

It’s always a dubious honour, spearheading a movement or new sub genre, so when Alphabeat were proclaimed the jewel in the crown of ‘wonky pop’ a year or so ago it was a double-edged sword. Especially because wonky pop turned out to be a total chocolate fireguard of a genre and the Danish quintet are way more astute than the pigeonhole might suggest. They’ve traded up their B-52s influenced jangle for a sleeker electropop vibe, claiming Snap! and Black Box as influences, which, as wrong as it may sound, might just work.

Classic Grand, Glasgow, Mon 26 Oct.

Alphabeat and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool

Over 14s show. Happy indie pop from Copenhagen.
