We are Alaska Campus. An indie/alternative band formed in Hertfordshire, England. Our sound consists of great dynamical variations, unique and delicate vocals with a humble layering of accompaniment from the rest of the band, and an altogether mellow, atmospheric sound.
Our first EP was successfully released on the 15th August 2011 named ‘Keep Yourself Warm’ we have created a very positive response with the records Blow, Summer Someday and Felicity. We created a rapid, overwhelming impression by performing live in and around London with shows such as Bombay Bicycle Club’s official after show party, headlining the Hatfield forum and supporting at the 02 Islington Academy. The entire EP is available to purchase from big cartel and the single Blow is available to download from Itunes.
On the 24th March 2012 we released our first mini album ‘When We Were Young’ at our best home town venue and effectively sold out the venue’s capacity and completely sold out on albums. Fortunately we were able to play the venues last night of live music and can proudly say we gave it a memorable send off. We released Story of Alaska Pt.1 as our first single with a music video which featured Emma Conybeare and was directed by Daniel Broadley. Tracks Mon Reve, You Me And The Sun, Control, Roseanna and Story of Alaska Pt.1 had amazing responses from webzines, magazines and radio. NME featured our music video on their website, Rock Sound Magazine gave us an 8/10 album review and Dead Press gave us an 8/10 rating on the album. Vibe radio had us perform at Hertfordshire’s firework display to a crowed of 33,000 people which was amazing and BBC Introducing had us in to talk about the album and asked us questions about the tracks. All together a successful year. When We Were Yo ung is a vailable from our online store and Story of Alaska Pt.1 is available to download from Itunes.
For 2013 we will releasing as many singles with videos as possible and will have them all available to download digitally and to purchase physically. We we will also be touring in the summer, performing on radio stations, have new press shots done, having a online and printed press working with us and doing as many gigs as possible. Hopefully 2013 will be our year.
