The LaFontaines one of Scotland’s top live acts have just released a new single today Alpha ahead of coming to The Caves in Edinburgh next month on their UK tour.

The band will release their album Junior next month on So Recordings, but to whet your appetite they have released a taster from it today. Watch the one take video made at Park Lane Studios below.

frontman Kerr Okan explained :“’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.”

The LaFontaines deliver a unique sound that fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian, the edgy hip-hop delivery of The Streets and the electronic-pop undertones of Twenty One Pilots to create a style that pushes the boundaries of rock.

They are playing Reading and Leeds festivals this year but will be in Edinburgh on 17 June. Tickets here
