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 entire band grew up in suburban New Jersey and this experience is the catalyst for the new single. Driving on the highway in New Jersey, outside of New York, can be an overwhelming experience. The cars are going fast, the lanes are tight, and many highways cross over each other. There is grit. When you exit into a suburban town there is more space, verdant greenery, places to reflect. New Jersey is a really beautiful state. That’s what life can be like in America: craziness and hustling around on a chaotic highway, then reflecting and relaxing after exiting that highway. This is what the band wanted to convey with this song, structurally and emotionally.
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. 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 single, “The Highway State”.

Our talented bass player Andrew made a great short film and Nick, our drummer and Mike, our guitar player wrote all the music for it. Check it out below!
Today “The Bowling Alley Sound” EP turns one. We had a blast writing this record and we hope you’ve had a great time listening to it.
It helped get us recognized as one if the best “Fresh Finds” of 2017 from Spotify and “The Conversation of the Street Lights Will Pass as Quickly as Our Words” is closing in on 10,000 streams on the platform. That is still pretty crazy to us.
Since the EP we released a single in November, “Alabama Dissonance”. We have also been working on a few new songs that will come out in 2018.
Thanks for your support of this record and as a thank you, all of our music is free on our Bandcamp page!
