After all, pop is not a dirty word…
Alphabet Backwards release their British Explorer EP on the 28th November 2011
Alphabet Backwards’ ethos is simple: to champion the noble art of Pop music, dancing all the way. This is no more clearer than in lead single Taller, which in the words of frontman James Hitchman ‘is about seeing an ex-girlfriend on the street with her new boyfriend, feeling belittled about it and wondering if she still misses you, prefers you to the new boyfriend and wants you back’.
The bands sound is infectiously catchy and puts a smile on your face. It’s a summery, joyous, happy-go-lucky affair, punctuated with an irresistible synth buzz and hooks aplenty…
Starting as one man and his guitar James recruited people he enjoyed playing with, friends Paul and Josh (of the T-Mobile JoshWard84 campaign fame) and Bob Tom on keys. Josh then enlisted his sister Steph to join James on lead vocals.
Alphabet Backwards have an ever expanding and enthusiastic fan-base, having played hard throughout the festival season and are currently touring to support the EP release, putting a little bit of summer pop sunshine back into these wintery nights.
