The Landing, which The Record Stache is excited to premiere here, is the latest high-energy single from the rising Detroit indie/alt-pop solo project turned five-piece, No Alarms. On this synths-laden, infectiously rhythmic track, front man Andrew Boles transmits concepts of elation and pure joy after taking a leap into the unknown – and landing on his feet.
Specifically inspired by his recent move from West Texas to Detroit, The Landing pairs driving rhythm and building synths with lyrics championing strength of conviction and actualization of belief in oneself after jumping into a new world.
Boles wrote the backbone of the track in a single afternoon, after riding high off optimistic inspiration from the Black Mirror episode, ‘Hang the DJ.’ The song crescendos into a final chorus as the lyrics become a chant of sorts, imbuing the listener with an indomitable positive spirit, and an undeniable dance groove.
No Alarms took root in Texas as the solo passion project of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Boles, and has since bloomed into a Detroit-based, full-fledged five-piece. No Alarms is blending the lines between modern indie pop and New Wave revival, and building an engrossing live show from the ground up.
The band, according to Skope Mag & MTM, “delivers infectious, arena sized pop hooks supported by an electro-pop-rockin’ instrumental foundation that infuses your being with memorable frequencies… incorporating a great deal of color within a stripped-down, neon-hued atmosphere.” Their debut single “Right is What’s Left” was featured in an episode of ABC’s Kevin Probably Saves the World, originally airing on February 6th, 2018.
The self-titled No Alarms EP arrived this past March, was the 13th most added record on NACC college charts its debut week, and has since peaked at #132 on the NACC 200. The EP was recently released on green vinyl.
