2007 – present (10 years)
Alice Sweet Alice are mavericks in the Alt Rock music world, defying any easy pigeonhole. In fact, ASA invented one word to describe their unique- and ever-evolving sound: “Electropostpunkadelic”. As one Kansas City reviewer described Alice Sweet Alice's music: "Take the turbulent undercurrent of Joy Division, add edgy guitar-synth crunch and hooks ala Garbage, drop in the haunting post-punk of Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees, a dash of Love and Rockets psychedelics, and polish the whole mix with angst-meets-curious inclinations inspired by The Cure's rhythmic urges. Something like that with a twist.” A UK review for ASA's most recent album “MANDALA”, stated: “It's hard to say what you notice first about Alice Sweet Alice, but it's probably fair to say that Ali Kat's vocals come fairly close to the top of the list. Tuneful and soulful, she is (thankfully) not given to the histrionics found on your average Evanescence album, instead opting for a tuneful drawl in the vein of The Kills or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, albeit with a significantly more interesting musical backdrop.”
Despite being 4 years old, and having 2 top selling full-length albums and one live album under their belt, Alice Sweet Alice remains relatively unknown on their home turf. However, on the 17th of October 2011, Alice 102 in Kansas City, a commercial radio station, placed Alice Sweet Alice's first single from their new album MANDALA entitled “Full Circle” in light rotation. Also, in December 2011, ASA was chosen to work with Gotham Music Placement in Santa Monica, CA and is currently working with them on multimedia, film and TV placements. ASA has had some success overseas, where via their eastern European distributor “AMAdea Records”, Alice Sweet Alice has consistently remained at the top selling status with their first two albums.
