Alphabeat Announce Fourth Album 'I Don't Know What's Cool Anymore', Share Title Track

Friday, 30 August 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Alphabeat have announced their fourth studio album.

‘I Don’t Know What’s Cool Anymore’ will arrive through Atlantic Records on November 1 and follow up 2012’s ‘Express Non-Stop’.

The pop group, who arrived in 2006 with their bursting-at-the-seams debut track Fascination, returned after a six-year hiatus with their comeback single Shadows in February. The second cut from the LP is its title track, a sugary power-pop bop full of catchy hooks that draws inspiration from the Jonas Brothers’ latest work.

Alphabeat commented:

“We have never felt stronger as a band – and as friends. There is so much renewed energy, lust, wildness, friendship, words and melodies we need to get out and when listening to our forthcoming album I think one can clearly sense what fellowship we have together.”

Alphabeat - Don't Know What's Cool Anymore (Album Review)
Tue 05 Nov 2019
People will always debate what is and isn’t cool, but such analysis practically renders any conclusions moot. If someone thinks they’re cool, they’re not. If they attempt to be cool, their intent betrays the concept. Genuine cool, if it exists, is surely an unconscious trait possessed by those who are true to themselves and unconcerned with what anyone else says, thinks or does. In which case, Alphabeat’s cracking comeback may be the coolest pop album you’ll hear all year.

Just over a decade ago, Alphabeat’s trend-defying brand of classic pop lit up the indie world like an explosion of neon rainbows across a dreary winter sky.  And now, history looks set to repeat itself. After a five year hiatus that followed a painful decline in their fortunes, ‘Don’t Know What’s Cool Anymore’ is a luminous comeback record overflowing with the purest gloss you’ll hear this side of the ‘80s. As well as hooks. Lots and lots of sparkling hooks.

Make no mistakes about it, Alphabeat make totally addictive, pure pop music. But Alphabeat are more than a guilty pleasure; simply because no one should feel embarrassed or guilty in liking or bopping along to these excitable Danes. Their sound is in your face; lights flashing, beats pumping and girl’s screaming at the top of their lungs. The question is, what’s not to like about it?! NME once described them as the best band from Scandinavia, bar Abba. And with a second album out now, The Spell, the British public are clearly enchanted by their magic.

Thu 19 Dec 2019
That Harry Styles chose genteel pop-rock as his mode of solo expression remains an intriguing, surprising turn of events. After the mannered, occasionally beige, opening statement made by his self-titled debut back in 2017, ‘Fine Line’ is tasked with adding depth and nuance beyond his expressive voice and devilish good looks.
