Alternate Function Short Info

Alternate Function are a group of ex school friends from Brighton who have now gone into different paths. They play lively Alternate rock.
This year has seen the band play many local gigs in Brighton at the legendary Concorde 2, Sticky Mikes Frog Bar,and the Green Door Store to name a few, playing support and recently headlining in their own right. They have played battle of the bands competitions winning prizes and gaining rave reviews from judges ('Glastonbury ready', ' A band destined to play bigger stages') and plaudits around their musicianship ('I wanted to give up guitar playing having seen how good this young band are') two of the band are currently studying at Brighton's BIMM.
They recently went into a local studio to record their second EP, 'Scopes', that highlights the evolution of the band from basic indie roots on their first EP, 'Lights' to a more mature musical style that encompasses shades of Biffy Clyro and Arcane Roots (two of the guys influences). The EP was recorded by Alistair Gavan from local hero s Electric Soft Parade and The Prizhorn Dance Studio

Here are links to the latest EP - Scopes. We would welcome any feedback on the tracks.
