Catherine, Gerry, Stevie and Mike are Alphastates and are brimming over with talent. Seemingly oblivious to their comparatively mundane surroundings, all four are refreshingly unselfconscious onstage and clearly revel in a gig opportunity. Imagine putting Stellastarr in the fridge for a couple of hours, or giving the Cardigans a soul, we would end up with Alphastates. But then again, to reduce this band's sound to a merely digestible indie-pop stereotype would be underestimating one of the strongest undercurrents in the country's alternative music scene. Reeling in audiences nationwide and releasing their original and distinctive album, Made From Sand, Alphastates live are unmissable.
