Alphabet Backwards

Alphabet Backwards from Oxford in England started life as James on his own with his guitar, but then came some additions - Paul, Josh and Bob Tom, subsequently Steph joined on the behest of her brother Josh and so the ground was set.

Indie Pop has the danger of being bland, mind-numbing nothingness, but then I didn’t need to say that, Alphabet Backwards add an intriguing electro twist and hey we are on to something here.

Infectious joy bounces out of the speakers like a newly engaged couple. They do not over complicate, however add sufficient depth to keep the ears actively tuned in to the sounds. The electro breaks in like a  fix of caffeine, sweeping the band up and driving them forward again on an ever more up-beat direction.  It is difficult to not get wrapped up in the feel-good factor.

The sound has tones of euro- electronica made shiny by a poppy remix which is a clever piece of reconstruction. More recently the band have added some darker textures to the mood, which plays out superbly, as it they still sit on the sunny-side of the street.

Already making a mark in the world of music, Alphabet Backwards look set to make an even larger splash.


I hope they don’t get ensnared in the commercial opportunities that will undoubtedly come their way and retain that naivety which makes the out-put such a pleasure.
