First of all this Dublin band have nothing to do with movie stars or Big Brother commentators. Led by ex-Babysleg (nope, me neither) man Dermot O’Leary Alanalda have just released their debut the ‘Demonstration’ EP. ‘Always Someone Watching’ is the second and best track from the EP and initially reminded me of some early Divine Comedy endeavours. That’s probably down to Pauline Freeman’s cello parts and the general galloping momentum (c.f. ‘Tonight We Fly’). With ‘Always Someone Watching’ Alanalda could be onto something because it could snugly fit in with the Tap Tap/Beirut scene that emerged last year. All told this song is a nice departure for an Irish release and could be a lot of fun in a jam packed poky venue. Michael Knight will have to look over his shoulder. KD
