The gentlemen of Dallas Kalevala are at it again. So go and grab a drink and hold on to it, we’re about to show you something intense.
“Blessed are the addicted. They have fallen for the other, got burned and been forced to get humble. The sense of otherness has always been like a magnet for us. It’s like a constant urge to run away from the mundane by any means necessary. Situations change, but from the day zero, some Thing from the other side has been calling. That’s what makes Dallas Kalevala and especially A.L.C.O.H.O.L feel relevant. The title of the song could be anything from white sugar to redneck cocaine, but for us Finns it just happens to be alcohol that resonates in the families.”
– That’s what the duo has to say about the new single
If this is your first time listening to this single, grab your favorite drink. I am serious. Now sit back (optional) and press play. Tell me about your feelings once you’re finished. Now play it again. Finish your drink. And play it again, Sam! Rinse and repeat until you get the hang of what’s happening. Simple as that.
Besides the fact that A.L.C.O.H.O.L sounds a bit like if Grimes and The Prodigy had a wild one night stand somewhere in Siberia and the fact it only caused a slight feeling of anxiety just before it dropped, I think I’m wasted enough to say that I love this song. And I’m sure I mentioned it at some point earlier, but you never know what to expect from Dallas Kalevala. It could be anything… And anything is what we all expect from their debut album.
“If you’re looking for a harmless, soft audio pillow, Dallas Kalevala is not for you.” – And you can only agree with that.
But anyway, the self-titled debut album drops on 18th January via VILD Recordings and Svart Records – Pre-order here!
I’m not sure if my body is ready for that just yet, but some alcohol will surely fix that, right? 🍸🍸🍸
Also, this conversation between me and a fellow co-partner sums up this track pretty well. In other words, happy Friday, Merry Christmas, don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do and everything. I’m out for the next six months.
