A Cool Band from Nottingham. Meet Alberteen


I wasn’t that familiar with Alberteen but after multiple listens ,I can say this is quite infectious. Poppy, a little Talking Heads meet Scott Walker, sounds like it would make a cool soundtrack for a Bond Movie. Give a listen, after you read the Interview, there’s a lot to like…..
