Info for The Flying Carousel
Vintage Rock duo The Alligator Wine have just signed with Century Media Records and present the title track off their upcoming EP “The Flying Carousel” - due to be released on January 25th 2019!
“The Flying Carousel” marks an introduction to a band that creatively fuses the old and new. With sounds that bridge decades, The Alligator Wine invite you into an electronic yet analogue world that peaks in incredibly catchy hooks and choruses.
The Alligator Wine throw you into a mix of psychedelic moog sounds, distorted organs and thick synth basses that fuse together in a fresh sounding danceable package. The electronic soundscapes that the band explores throughout this EP are solely created by analogue equipment that notably features an illuminated Leslie speaker as a centerpiece on stage and in the studio.
Jens Prueter, Head of A&R, Century Media Records Europe: “The White Stripes wasn’t the first duo in rock music and with The Picturebooks we already have one on Century Media Records. But I can’t think of too many duos even without guitar. Billy Joel’s short-lived Attila came to my mind who rocked really heavy on their only album in 1970. Jimi Hendrix was impressed by the Swedish duo Hansson & Karlsson and covered “Tax Free” from their 1967 debut. And The Alligator Wine transfer these vintage sounds with a heavy groove. It is not about the novelty of a duo as such but The Alligator Wine deliver simply good, unique music and are not afraid of taking risks. Hope you’ll like it as much as we do!”

The Alligator Wine
Vintage Rock without guitars? The Alligator Wine make it happen. With sounds that bridge decades without appearing too “old-fashioned”, The Alligator Wine throw you into a mix of psychedelic moog sounds, distorted organs and thick synth basses that fuse together in a fresh sounding danceable package.
The electronic soundscapes that the band explores throughout this EP are strictly created with analogue equipment that notably features an illuminated Leslie speaker as a centerpiece on stage and in the studio. This approach leads to an incredibly organic sounding record that combines classic instruments and modern songwriting that simply draws you into a world of lush synth basses.
Even more impressive? All of this is created by a two-man band that was only founded in 2016! If there is one right way to listen to this EP, it is on vinyl, which is why Century Media is releasing this three-track EP physically on vinyl only. Combined this with the analogue style recording of the album, this format makes for a truly unique listening experience for everyone who is looking for a record that really feels authentic and alive.
This album contains no booklet.
