We've been building the Volleyball universe throughout the lockdowns, knitting together the look and feel with the music. It's important to us to innovate in our approach to releasing music wherever we can - and we've been working closely with 'The Rattle' creative collective. We believe artists should be more empowered and our approach to releasing reflects this. Recent and upcoming collabs include an immersive VR experience and a fractal-style video alongside several remixes.
We’re currently in the process of writing two mini-albums side by side, the first of which will be out before the end of the year.
Born out of a session writing music for a surf film, the opening chords had an immediate glow that lit up the room. The drums ebb and flow, underpinning a strong groove as the melodies soar over the top.
‘Aloosh’ means ‘from the sky’; we love how that image captures the transitory nature of memories and places, how they can be important in your life, disappearing without you noticing and reappearing when you least expect them. Memories that seem far away can be recalled easily through music. Aloosh was also the name of a friend’s band at the time some of us moved to London. They formed the centre of a scene that worked from a studio in Dalston, leading to many collaborations and good times - in part driving us towards what we’re doing now.
Being in a band is an all-encompassing relationship, it defines an era of your life and creates something greater than the sum of its parts. Aloosh is also a moment of appreciation for this and what we’ve given each other.
