Track: Radio Free Alice broadcast with style that ‘Paris Is Gone’, but all the excitement remains. Launch dates also announced.

Radio Free Alice are proving to be one of the most exciting musical forces emerging at the moment and their third single with the excellent Double Drummer label is a case in point. Wasting no time and coming in at under two blistering minutes, ‘Paris Is Gone’ is a vibrant piece of post punk glory with all the acerbic joy of an earthquake a la Fontaines D.C. combined with a vocal delivery that recalls the studied elegance of Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark. It’s this dichotomy that makes them so special. The filigree of horn adds a dramatic luster.

Singer Noah Learmonth says of the song:

‘Paris is Gone’ is a manic narrative about a post break-up adrenaline rush. ‘Paris’ doubles as a reference to both the city with all its associated romanticism and also the insecurity of modern love.

Brim full of attitude and a swaggering stance, this is a refined chaos that is both elegant and disheveled in the most glorious fashion. I predict big things for this band:

‘Paris Is Gone’ is out now and available to stream and download through all the usual sites. You can catch the launch shows below:

Thursday March 30 – The House of Music & Booze, St Peters, Sydney
Saturday April 1 – The Old Bar, Fitzroy, Melbourne
