Mississippi based duo Newscast unveil the sizzling 80s inspired single ‘Alive’, from their newly released debut EP ‘5’ edited by sound engineer Misha Hercules (Wavves, The Weeks).

Equipped with a synth-fueled, sugarcoated explosion of pop, Newscast make an entrance in the business of validating novelty. Hayden Boyd and Salar Almakky’s synthetic chemistry shines through ‘Alive’ with endlessly overlapping riffs and sparkling electronic touches.

Swimming in it’s own melancholic groove, the song expresses the difficulties of loving someone else without being able to fully love yourself, evocatively expressed by the duo’s icy and distorted vocals. Overall, the song glistens in the realm of disco pop, ready for any night out.
