Our new record Alabama Dissonance is out NOW via 46 West!
This single follows our 2017 sophomore EP The Bowling Alley Sound, a record that got the band named a “Fresh Find” for the first half 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.”
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 you’ll find are more like spoken word but it’s perfectly executed and the concept is nothing short of brilliant!”
Our inspiration for this song came from a cross-country road trip with friends.
“We were driving down an Alabama highway in the middle of the night,” describes guitarist Mike Basil. “Truckers were speeding past us, rain was pouring, and the thunder was unbearably loud. The woods along the highway were aflame in the distance. This tense, otherworldly experience is reflected in the song’s dissonant chords, loud feel changes, and cymbal crashes. In contrast, the youthful voice of my nephew adds peace and resolve to the track, leading it out of a confusing place.”
The Bowling Alley Sound is a five piece instrumental band consisting of guitar (Mike Basil), drums (Nick Looney), bass (Andrew Capuano), violin (Isaac Rubins), and trumpet (Danny Molloy). 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.
