A L A S K A return on March 1st 2013 with a new double A-side single via fledgling Leeds indie label TELLUS RECORDS. Featuring live favourites Ghost In Your Mind and Baker Boy, the single raises the bar in both production and presentation following 2012's acclaimed debut EP, with Lewis Sleeman returning to man the desk and Stuff & Things Colllective co-ordinating the design.
The brisk garage rock of Ghost In Your Mind travels down twisted tracks, like a technicolour Mag-Lev train speeding through the haunted psychosis of a guilt-stricken lover. Baker Boy plays like a mini epic, channelling an oriental Ennio Morricone riff through a lurid sexual fantasy of baked goods topped with lashings of effeminate violence.
The new single will be released on limited edition coloured 7" vinyl housed in handmade, screen-printed sleeves with two alternate cover designs.
"A sleazy soundtrack to a wonky Waters, Tarantino or Meyer movie. A thrillingly loose set of tight tunes infectious enough to lift them onto bigger stages."
