ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.404 - Alien Tango

After impressing so many with a bright and varied array of singles and EPs over the last few years, London-based Spanish artist Alberto García aka Alien Tango is back once again to share his latest upbeat groove 'workinonit'.

Set to feature on his long-awaited debut album, which is due to be announced soon, 'workinonit' makes for a wonderfully fun and vibrant listen. With his own distinctive flair for fresh and soaring textures, all wrapped up in a warm psych-pop melody, this new one is perfect for kicking back in these ever-warmer summer days.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, "Almost two years recording my LP. Two goddamn years rolling out of bed to re-record vocal takes for the 15th time or obsess about how much reverb the snare drum needs and how much everyone will notice. At some point, I was so far in, but so far from finishing, I thought I would linger in that endless loop of toxic perfectionism until the sun exploded, wishing I had made different decisions in life. “workinonit” is a break from that. A song about making a song, talking to myself and telling me to chill the f**k out: I needed to make something without purpose, that doesn’t necessarily fit a bigger megalomaniac scheme. It won’t be part of the LP because that’d be like putting the making of a movie in the movie itself. But it’s about the LP. Catchy and disposable. Sweet and rough around the edges. An unhealthy snack because the main course is not ready. An ugly child of inattentive parents that learns to juggle. Take it at face value and don’t dare to look at it too closely."
