The Aliens have landed. Armed with a bottomless bag of psychedelically inclined rock and acid dipped electronics, The Aliens bring a freedom of spirit and a certainty of intent that immediately sets them out from the current crop of guitar slingers. Inspired by Sergio Leone and Serge Gainsbourg, Brian Eno and Brian Wilson, Larry David and Ol' Dirty Bastard, their songs in the key of Fife reference the past whilst belonging resolutely to the future.
On May 8th, the Alienoid Starmonica EP willbe released, the first taster of what's to come from The Aliens. These Aliens have history - between them they have been behind some of the most enthralling British music of the last decade. John Maclean and Robin Jones were members of the Beta Band. Gordon Anderson was a founding Beta Band member who went on to record two albums under the Lone Pigeon moniker.
Alienoid Starmonica EP is the first release from The Aliens; four tracks that give you a clear insight into this trio's musical imagination.
The Aliens recently played their first three live dates in their native Scotland. Raw and sweaty, crowds were moved, beautiful mistakes were made and friendships were formed. Take a look for yourself at their next London show as part of the Camden Crawl on April 20th. Additionally The Aliens are already confirmed to appear at the festival dates listed below.

20th April – Camden Crawl, London
