Tales of small town heroes, bar flies & gun slingers, heart breakers & heart broken, the toilers, gamblers & drifters, forlorn in the city or crossing the seas...
London-based five piece The Alvarez Theory are excited to announce the release their eponymous debut album on May 24th, 2019, with the album launch taking place at Camden's Green Note on the same date.
This impressive debut features a concise collection of guitar and fiddle woven tales written by German / Spanish born songwriter Diana Diehl. What initially started as a solo project in Bremen, Germany where Diana supported British bands and singers like Ash's Charlotte Hatherley; has flourished into a 5 piece band over the last few years. The Alvarez Theory is Dee Diehl (vocals, guitar), Sarah Louise Bates (bass, vocals), Julia O’Hanlon (fiddle, concertina, vocals), Mark Patterson (mandolin, banjo, guitar) and Flo Miller (drums). The album was recorded over the course of ten days at Nick Harris's Spareroom Recording studio in north London.
First single By The River opens the album, with it’s haunting tale of loss, regret and the lies we tell ourselves. Moody guitars roll through the song like arterial railroads and a river that serve as a backdrop to this outlaw’s lament.
