Our new record Horror Songs is out now!
This new album follows our 2020 single “Call My Shiba“, 2017 tracks “Alabama Dissonance“, “The Highway State” as well as our 2017 sophomore EP The Bowling Alley Sound, a record that got the band named a “Fresh Find” of 2017 by Spotify.
The outlet Beautiful Song of the Week said, “Chances are good you’ve never heard anything quite like Bowling Alley Sound. Do your ears a favour and check out their new single.”
The outlet For Us Not Them said, “Every time I play a song from The Bowling Alley Sound, I find myself contemplating life and this latest release is no exception. The lyrics [in “Alabama Dissonance”] you’ll find are more like spoken word but it’s perfectly executed and the concept is nothing short of brilliant!”
The new album is a collections of tracks inspired by music from horror films created during the difficult 2020 year. It came together entirely online as travel was impossible but it proved a new method of creating hellscapes for us.
The Bowling Alley Sound is now a six piece instrumental band consisting of guitar (Mike Basil), drums (Nick Looney), bass (Andrew Capuano), violin (Isaac Rubins), and trumpet (Danny Molloy) with the addition of percussion (Wesley Ostrander) for this new song.
The band was originally formed in order to bring Mike Basil’s songwriting to life in their debut record and has since been active in the northern New Jersey music scene. Fans of artists such as Do Make Say Think, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai and ambient minimalist music will find themselves in familiar waters. The Bowling Alley Sound is pleased to bring you their latest album, Horror Songs.
