The sophomore record from Swiss synth-pop mavericks Alois is called «Azul», which means blue in Spanish. The sound is like an expansive, saturated summer sky with soothing and generous gradients of blues. Full of warm, life-affirming energies softly infused with a deep-seated melancholy. The songwriting combines what the band loosely call Caribbean disco – all manners of Caribbean and African music – with elements of contemporary electronica, 80s synth-wave, balearic, dub and hints of trap. It’s a hybridised pop with a heavy predilection for the dance floor.
