The Saxophones

Idioma disponible: inglés
Retro-pop duo the Saxophones make gossamer chamber pop that combines elements of 1950s exotica, West Coast folk, smooth jazz, and bedroom pop. Formed in the California Bay Area in the mid-2000s, they released their full-length debut, Songs of the Saxophones, in 2018. The couple further elaborated on their searching, romantic style on albums like 2020's Eternity Bay and 2023's echoey To a Be a Cloud, which was recorded live to tape in a retired church. Based in Oakland, the Saxophones are married couple Alexi Erenkov (vocals, guitar, synthesizer, woodwinds) and Alison Alderdice (drums, vocals). The project began as a solo effort by Erenkov, who started singing and learning guitar after becoming disenchanted with formal jazz study at college. Following several years that included writing songs, honing the sound, and expanding personnel, Erenkov, Alderdice, and friend Richard Laws (bass, synthesizer, vibraphone) recorded the EP If You're on the Water with Radiation City's Cameron Spies in Portland, Oregon. Originally self-released digitally and on lathe-cut vinyl in 2016, the EP's Internet buzz led to a deal with Full Time Hobby, which reissued it a year later. The Saxophones' official debut single, "Aloha," followed early in 2018, backed with a cover of the David Lynch/Angelo Badalamenti classic "Just You" from Twin Peaks. The band's full-length debut, Songs of the Saxophones, recorded once again with Spies and Laws, arrived in June 2018. The duo returned with the EP Singing Desperately Suite in early 2019 before issuing their second full-length, the Spies-produced Eternity Bay, in March 2020. The project's next album, May 2023's To a Be a Cloud, was distinguished by its resonating sound. A philosophical set written at home in Inverness, California, in moments of quiet after their kids were in bed, it was recorded live to 24-track tape (again with Laws) at Phil Elverum's Unknown Studio, a former Catholic church in Washington State.
