alaska, an indiepop band.
We first met in november 1994, aiming to start a band after having been inspired by the great british noisepop and shoegazing music scene of that time. We were, and still are, fans of bands like the pale saints, slowdive, ride, my bloody valentine, the pastels, bmx bandits, lush, stone roses, revolver, etc. ... So we sat in that small laundry kitchen and absolutely did not know how to play at all. Somebody spoke of “wall of sounds” and we still have to laugh about this joke nowadays... We are absolutely diy ever since then, self taught and naive. And that´s what we still are today. Well, maybe a little bit more experienced. We just love what we do, and we do not care too much about the others. Now, almost 24 years later (omg), we are still meeting at least once a week, ruinously destroying our hearing. Making music is big fun, good for the brain and it is worth the effort.
Since 1999 our music is published by Marsh-Marigold Records.
