Canterbury-based alternative rock quartet The Alchemy have been making lasting impressions with music fans and critics alike. Since forming in 2015 they have been touring the UK regularly and released their debut EP, Modern Age, in May earlier this year.
Modern Age features four tracks, including the two singles ‘Blackhole Passenger‘ and title track, ‘Modern Age‘, and was recored in London with producer Paul Matthews of I Am Giant. The EP is best described as a combination of big melodic riffs and atmospheric electronics, with a mature approach to song writing, and is an excellent first release from the band.
Each track from Modern Age has a distinctive feel with elements unique to each song while also retaining a unified feel throughout the eighteen minutes of music. This combination of familiarity and uniqueness ensures the music drive forward with new ideas while keeping the listener interested.
The Alchemy are also a great live band, providing energetic performances and displaying a professional level of stage craft. Having seen the band perform at multiple shows, what you hear on the record is what you get live, right down to the intricate electronic elements found in the track ‘Blackhole Passenger‘. This is a group who take all aspects of being in a band seriously and it is paying off!
The Alchemy have been slowly but surely penetrating the media, having had their music played by BBC Introducing, Planet Rock Radio, Team Rock, Way Out Radio, and most recently Kerrang Radio. They have also been fortunate enough to have the video for ‘Modern Age‘ on Scuzz TV‘s main playlist.
The Alchemy have recently finished a ten day UK tour and are set to play MooseFest in Oprington on 5th November, and are set to perform a hometown headline show at The Penny Theatre in Canterbury on 25th November, so be sure to check them out if your a fan of alternative rock and want a fresh band to add to your list of favourites.
