Alberta Cross – Taking Control

Release Date 21/11/2009
By Alex Phelan

Treacherous band Alberta Cross hails from London but jumped our sinking island to go to New York and get famous.

It seems to be working out for them as ‘Taking Control’, first single from debut album Broken Side of Time, is a bit of a treat.

It’s bluesy, gushing indie squirting from the vein of Kings of Leon, but their shimmering, crashing chord sound and pounding drums betray their Englishness.

There’s a lot of promise here and we’d do well to stake our claim to these guys before the yanks call dibs.
