At a time in age when music is constantly shifting and artists always seem to want to shift with it and recreate themselves and the music all over again, it’s really quite refreshing to hear a band sticking with it and keeping it real, if you will. This is exactly what Aleutians, a DIY project from Wallasey, United Kingdom, has done with their latest EP release.

Cues of wistful, nostalgic guitar-pop sum up the sort of bittersweet feeling of looking back with time running away from you, titled “This is all we need,” the EP is put together. Aleutian music is inspired by life in a small town—nonetheless, beautiful—and by such artists as Turnover, Death Cab, American Football, Alvvays, and the Boo Radleys. In short, music from Aleutian is the perfect mix of indie and emo.

This EP takes its listeners on a journey through the vicissitudes of life, with themes which treat of love, loss, missed chances, and passing time. Every single of the tracks is poignant, with lyrics reflecting life-based reflection; heartfelt and with easily relatable words. His artist biography says that his songwriting is all about “loves lost and chances missed,” but it’s much more. It’s about the moments that shape us, the memories we hold onto, and the hope for the future.

What sets Aleutians apart from other indie bands is their ability to infuse their music with a sense of place. Hailing from the Wirral Peninsula, there’s always a sense of homecoming within their tunes, whether it lies on a local bus route or a faded coastal town. This makes their music personal in a way that endears you to them.

Listening to “This is all we need” is really like going through the lane of memories. Reminding maybe we have to treasure all we have, moments and opportunities to make the best of time given for it. The EP stands as proof that eventually, at times, we just really need the music to feel like something else “got” them and got them through the intricacies.

The trained listener, with exposure to indie and emo scenes, will have little difficulty recalling the sound of bands such as Death Cab for Cutie or Turnover. But therein lies their charm and what really does make this track by them special, a wonderful, moving blend of nostalgia and hope that really does stand them apart from the crowd of countless similar artists.

The lead singer to this band said in an interview that the source of their inspiration to their music is very simply to create again something after a very long pause with music. And so did they. “That’s All We Need to Hear” literally attests to the fact that band sounds musically and personally ever-growing, changing along with the times. Yet one more reminder of how beauty and sense are able to surface even in the life of an average person.

In other words, EP “This is all we need” from Aleutians is a must-listen to everyone who loves raw, honest music speaking to the soul. The combination that this band portrays in their music, indie with a tinge of emo, is superb. Travel to Wallasey, UK, with the sounds of Aleutians and let their sound take you from one place to another, every song filled with memories, hope, and everything in between.

Aleutians are a DIY project from New Brighton on the Wirral. This duo is inspired by the beauties of ordinary life in a small town and is kind of comparable to Turnover, Death Cab for Cutie, American Football, Alvvays, and The Boo Radleys in crafting wistful, nostalgic guitar pop about lost loves and missed chances. Their music really captures this very feeling—bittersweet, where memories and time run away with chances missed, friends long gone, all the happy times you had and can only keep in your memory..
