East Side Digital recording group Halloween, Alaska has announced the upcoming release of its much anticipated third album. “CHAMPAGNE DOWNTOWN” – the Minnesota-based band’s first new music in more than three years – arrives in stores and at digital retailers on April 7th.
Having earned widespread acclaim for its atmospheric brand of synth-driven indie, “CHAMPAGNE DOWNTOWN” sees Halloween, Alaska crafting its most distinctive and disarming set to date. Songs such as “In Order” and “Gone With The Wind” are complex and thoughtful, rich with simmering textures and literate lyricism. Melding an expansive range of inventive sounds with anthemic indie-rock hooks, “CHAMPAGNE DOWNTOWN” straddles the boundary between the electronic and the organic to create a novel rethink of what pop music can mean in a new millennium.
