Ålesund are an alt pop band from Bristol UK, fronted by the ethereal vocals of British-Norwegian singer-songwriter Alba Torriset. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of musical genres and artists, Ålesund's sound is a fusion of dreamy pop hooks, atmospheric soundscapes, and alternative rock riffs, which have drawn comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush, Florence and the Machine, Aurora, and London Grammar.
Channeling the sounds of Florence + The Machine and London Grammar, Ålesund offers an ethereal and elegant sound full of bright melodic leads and atmospheric textures.
Ålesund absolutely smashing out the park as always.
Ålesund have the ability to bring you in and take you on an exploration with them.
I want to talk about a track I had fallen in love with as soon as I heard it...
...mesmerising, seductive and glacially dramatic. It’s heartbeat built upon Alba Torriset’s crystalline vocals and a piano so emotive, yet raw, it would bring a hush to the largest crowd.
Alba Torriset... casts a defiant figure, strikingly dressed with a fierce plait woven around her head and her forceful voice splendidly clear and assertive. ..ultimately this is her gig...her vocal conviction commanding your attention. It’s strong stuff.
