WHAT IS NEO-NOIR-ALT-ROCK?
It’s the sonic equivalent of the sinister and shadowy, art deco aesthetic found in Hollywood’s most notorious noir films…but with the safety off.
It’s a polished chrome pinball, crashing madly between the bounds of searing, modern rock and the sultry echo of times gone by. Cynical, dark and twisted lyrical plotlines, driving rhythms and revved up guitar leads carry listeners into an unfamiliar landscape of raw emotion and questionable virtues.
Grab your fedora. We’re glad you’re here.
The Alloys began as “Lindsey Buck and The Alloys,” in the summer of 2018 as an acoustic trio consisting of singer/songwriter Lindsey Buck, guitarist Danny Coyle (also of the Boulevard Kings) and bassist Mitch Hanley (friendly neighbor and native Minnesotan). Together the group performed a set of Lindsey’s original tunes, described as “sweet, dark, blues-soaked soul-pop,” live and on local radio: Hull PorchFest, The Burren, Paragon Boardwalk, Hull Yacht Club, South Shore Live, 95.9FM.
In 2019, their sound became more electrified and they continued playing together under the simplified moniker, “Lindsey Buck,” releasing 5 singles throughout 2019 (listen now on Spotify, Apple Music or YouTube) and performing live and on the radio throughout Boston, the South Shore, and Rhode Island: Union Tavern, The C-Note, Maggy’s Lounge, Vitamin Sea Brewery, Isadora’s Providence, South Shore Live, 95.9FM.
With the 2020 addition of drummer Brian Lundgren (also of Iris Dome, Liquid Audio Lab and The Dawghouse), their sound continues to evolve and a synergistic and collaborative songwriting process has emerged. In August 2020, the band became simply and officially, “The Alloys,” with a fresh, new set of tunes in the style they term, “Neo-noir-alt-rock.”
They released their first single, Crashing Down, in May 2021 and are currently recording an EP due out in 2022.
Through livestreams and T-Shirt sales, The Alloys raised over $3,500 for The C-Note Benefit Fund, in an effort to help this iconic local music venue stay afloat during the COVID-19 shutdowns.
