ESNS: 2021
The sophomore record from Swiss synth-pop mavericks Alois is called Azul (blue in Spanish) and is full of warm, life-affirming energies, infused with deep-seated melancholy. The songwriting combines Caribbean disco with elements of contemporary electronica, 80s synth-wave, Balearic dub and hints of trap. It’s a hybridised pop with a heavy predilection for the dance floor, as exemplified by their recent Skiclub Toggenburg collaborations as well. Alois are a proper band. They come from jazz and relish playing out.
