Very excited to share Alright’s new single ‘Lapse’. Following previously released singles ‘Scraps’ and ‘Parallels’, this thorny slice of guitar pop is the latest song to be taken off the band’s debut LP, ‘I'm Doing This to Myself,’ out on Aug 28 on Self Aware Records (pre-order HERE). The album was produced by Kyle R. Pulley (Hop Along, Kississippi) at Headroom Studios and mastered by Will Killingsworth.
North Carolina’s Alright have been doing this to each other for a while. Vocalist/guitarist Sarah Blumenthal and bassist Josh Robbins led up to their debut LP with several short but measured bursts of fuzzy indie-punk. In those brief moments, like their debut 7” and 2018’s On the Outs EP, the band navigates the confusion that follows saying what you mean and being resistant to other calculated risks. Their debut LP has them taking the largest leap of faith yet: they’re advocating for, and antagonizing, themselves for the sake of art. It’s no wonder the end product is titled I’m Doing This to Myself.
