Glasgow based duo der Mist will easily become your new favourite band. Unleashing their debut single 'It's Alright' into the wild, the electronic rock number dives through realms of indie, pop, new wave, rock and even synth rock. der Mist are Craig McKissick and Ali Whitty, both based in Glasgow, Scotland and both known for their multi instrumental skills.
Released on January 15th, the debut is a refreshing wall of sound within the world's hectic industry. Speaking on the track, Craig of der Mist mentioned, "It's Alright was the first track Ali worked on with me when I was 16 that I can distinctly remember having this feeling that we were on to somthing - that's why it's the debut track. Like a lot of tracks on the album, it went through so many versions. I remember at one point it had so much going on, I was getting carried away alyering up sounds trying to turn it into a drum n bass dance track.
After hearing it, Ali swiftly decided we had to go back to basics and get the core elements of the demo and turn them into something better. Some elements from my outrageous version are still in there, but my favourite part of the process was recording the guitar solo. We had so much fun trying to channel our inner 80's child (even though I wasn't born then), trying to get something unique and fresh but also something that evokes that nostalgic feeling. Lyrically the track harkens back to the uncertainty I and I'm sure a lot of people had growing up and just having the confidence to tell yourself everything is going to be ok. And yes there is a reference to Kool and the Gang's 'Get Down On It' in there, why not!"
'It's Alright" is out now and we know you're going to love it.
