reading time: < 1 minute

Welcome to Alois! The band have created their own world of dance-oriented art pop. It reflects the band’s interest in synth-driven songwriting blending electronic beats with tropical guitars and exploring the rhythms of various musical cultures. It’s a hybridised pop with a heavy predilection for the dance floor as exemplified by their recent Skiclub Toggenburg collaborations as well. Alois is a more than proper band with a sound full of life-affirming energies infused with deep-seated melancholy. They came from jazz and relish playing out. Last month the band gave an energetic performance at ESNS to prove that.
