Takoma Park is a small town right outside of DC filled with artists and boutique shops that sit right on the line of the urban workings of the Nation’s Capital. The constant opposites of a small liberal town and urban decay make for a truly unique community.

It’s here that Alcian Blue have been writing and recording in their basement for the past 5 years under the radar of labels and slowly building a solid following of listeners at their volume-consuming live shows. Forming a tight bond with neighbors Skywave, the two bands often hit the road together destroying sound systems and ear drums everywhere. From strobes and blue lights to projectors and trippy high school science films, these shows were drenched in chaos and psychadelia often leaving the audience in a dizzying haze.

On record, Alcian Blue’s music is layered with fuzz and feedback. Though immediately catchy, listeners can expect to always find something else buried under the chaos waiting to scratch the surface. With pounding rhythms and swirling guitars and synths, vocals of murder, suicide, and ghosts wash in and out of the maelstrom. The claustrophobic atmosphere they create makes one wonder whether they are playing rock and roll or trying to conjure up demons. Either way, one listen and you’ll be itching to hear more while simultaneously ruining the speakers of your stereo system.


Exploring textural sounds with colours and noise. Creating developed pop.

We don't believe in "scenes" just music.
