London based Welsh artists ALASKALASKA make their FOCUS Wales debut in 20223! Four seasons of dawn chorus, panoramically framed by fruit trees and more analogue synths than can comfortably fit in a cow shed-come-recording studio…the scene is set for the recording of ALASKALASKA’s second album ‘Still Life’. Ordinarily located in South East London, writers and producers Fraser Rieley and Lucinda Duarte-Holman were eager to get out of the city. Taking advantage of this rustic countryside scene, they were able to capture something uniquely their own.

Following their debut album in 2019, they resurface in to a new era embracing all the things that first put the band on the map, attracting the likes of Tame Impala, Hot Chip, Porridge Radio and Nilüfer Yanya for tour support slots. The band now push their foundational ideas further and explore sounds they’d never quite had the freedom to play with. Duarte-Holman explains, “…with everything going on at the time, the restrictions led us to try working in a new way. The limitations were different, but meant we were able to adventure into a more electronic soundscape that we’re really looking forward to expressing live.”
