Auld presents Alilless from gorgeous debut album Mainstream Music
London-based electronic collective Auld presents their new single Alilless, following up the recently released debut single Need Her Still. Both tracks will be on their forthcoming debut album Mainstream Music, slated for release on March 15.
Comprised of 10 tracks, this long-play is loaded with easy yet brooding, alternative, electronic pop with guitars interwoven. While Mainstream Music was recorded over the summer of 2018, some of the songs date back as early as 2012. This release comes hot on the trail of the Curriculum Vitae EP, released in April 2018.
Based in Kilburn, London, Auld was started by Thomas Pitts as a solo project. They currently perform as a 6-piece, with Pitts joined by Alan Giles, Brian Wortman, Rachel Hearne, Glen Giles and James Milner.
Genre fluid, Auld frames a story through the lens of indie pop, sometimes rock, and sometimes electro. Pitts denotes the following as musical influences: Grimes, Kate Bush, R.E.M., Tom Waits, The National, The Pixies, Pavement, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Interpol, Earl Sweatshirt and The Flaming Lips.
"Mainstream Music is a celebration of all those people trying their best, but not being the best. The ones that have a lot to improve upon, but are aware of it. It is a celebration of sadness, friends and family".
