Scottish rock trio The LaFontaines have the release of their third album ‘Junior’ just around the corner, but before then they proceed to whet our appetite with new single, ‘Alpha’.
The song comes with an accompanying one-take video, recorded at Park Lane Studios in Glasgow. This is what frontman Kerr Okan had to say about the song and its message.
“‘Alpha’ comes as result of the losses we’ve had recently in this area from young males, predominately of the ‘Alpha’ stereotype. I’ve often struggled with my emotions – anything other than aggression was always seen as a weakness and something that should be locked away. ‘Alpha’ marks the point in my own journey where I realised that there was something real to be gained from embracing the spectrum of emotions – whether you’re male or not.”
You can stream and check out ‘Alpha’ below.
The band’s third full-length album, ‘Junior’, is out on June 14th 2019 via So Recordings.
