Dublin Experimental Instrumental Band ALARMIST Stream New Single ‘Expert Hygiene’ Out Now

27th June 2019

Ahead of an appearance at InJazz Festival in Rotterdam this evening, Dublin’s instrumental maximalists Alarmist are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Expert Hygiene’ which is out now on Small Pond and Art As Catharsis Records, and available to stream on all good digital services providers.

Seeded by the off-kilter sequencer that opens the track, ‘Expert Hygiene’ expands an impish hook into a gripping exercise in disorientation. A smooth surface of squashed electronica collides with the band at their most jagged.

The band recently announced their return with second LP, Sequesterer, out19th July 2019. Like 2015’s acclaimed Popular Demain album before it, the new record pulsates with frenetic energy, while also making detours into the more spacious and slower-paced avenues of the band’s collective imagination.

The trio have brought their blistering live sets to an opera hall at 12 Points Festival in Sweden, a Sum 41-esque halfpipe stage in a Toronto bike shop, and many places in between, including ArcTanGentBrilliant Corners (UK) and Out of The Crowd (Lux) festivals. Airplay has come from the influential likes ofSimon Raymonde (Amazing Radio/Bella Union), Jon Schaefer (New Sounds, WNYC), BBCRTÉ and Swedish National Radio, and press props from The GuardianAll About JazzHot PressNialler9The Sunday Times Ireland and the Irish Times.

Further live dates TBA.

Sequester is released 19th July 2019 via Small Pond Recordings (UK)
