With its new release, 'electro', aalacho takes its cue from the crop of new-wave/post-punk revivalists currently energizing the electronica landscape. Respectfully cribbing from the likes of Kraftwerk, OMD and The Replacements to create its own audio niche, aalacho wears its electro-rock heart on its sleeve and invites the listener into a private world of haunting melodies, unpredictable arrangements and a surfeit of shimmering, buzzing guitars. Featuring a sweet remix by Felix da Housecat, and a decidedly unique cover version of The Beatles' "Ticket to Ride".
About the Artist
Aalacho is an independent electronica project out of Seattle, Washington, blending ambient-house, indie-rock and retro-tinged techno. Founded by songwriter/producer Nathan Scott, aalacho also employs the talents of a host of indie guitarists and vocalists who add a sense of emotional warmth and gritty drive to the electro-rock arrangements. Aalacho has been compared to artists such as Gary Numan, Ladytron and Brian Eno.
