They are based in Naarm/Melbourne (Australia), the band name is a nod to R.E.M.’s debut single, and influences mentioned are Talking Heads, The Cure, The Smiths, The Go-Betweens, Parquet Courts and The Strokes. That sounds promising, right? Radio Free Alice is a young new wave/post-punk outfit featuring Noah Learmonth, Jules Paradiso, Lochie Dowd and Michael Phillips, and their self-titled debut EP is everything you’d hope for. It’s a collection of three previously released singles, with the exciting earworm Paris Is Gone as the biggest hit, plus new song Waste of Space. Original dynamic guitar melodies and unique versatile vocals, conveyed with eagerness and self-confidence, what’s not to like?
The Radio Free Alice EP is out now digitally trough Double Drummer.
