Already quite a while back, I mentioned a Steampunk fashion show in New Zealand. Now, there’s more Steampunk coming to us from down under. This time, I want to point your inquisitive eyes and ears towards Alex the Kid, a really fresh and new Steampunk band with a sound I find quite appealing.
To wet your appetite, a digital single from Alex The Kid, Future, plus a bonus track. Listen to Future:
Very cool, dancable future pop. Quite the stuff I like. Their abode on the ætherweb also features some fitting Steampunk imagery, atmosphere and a few amnities to play with and enjoy. Find out for yourselves, do not listen to me.
And talking of listening, here’s a special message from Alex the Kid, you may wish to take into cosideration:
So, contribute to our subculture, leave your mark! And think of all the goodies!
And a final note:
I love bands with stage-personalities and fictional hstories:
“Alex the Kid are from the future,” says Dave Thomson, tongue in cheek. “We have quantum leaped to this time to promote human and robot unity on earth.”
