Cracked Alice offers both a vibrant touch and a sophisticated songwriting style with no shortage of infectious hooks, sweet melodies, intelligent lyrics, and possessing a well-honed song craft rarely seen in today's music.
After hearing a scratch demo of Matthew through a mutual friend, guitarist Lynxx sought him out to get him involved in his new band concept, Cracked Alice. A short jam session later and they knew they had something very special.
Matthew quickly contacted former room and band mate C.E. Cognetti to play bass, while Lynxx recruited fellow underground NYC musician and drummer Luis Cambero.
The group quickly came into its own, developing a unique sound through a combination of their musicianship and a wide array of influences. "The goal was to create music that didn't need you to be familiar with the style, something so basic and primal that genre didn't matter." - Lynxx
Contents Under Pressure, the debut EP, was released in April 2013 featuring the songs Burn, Hangman, Fissure and Bones. It will take you on a journey through the highs and lows of the band members lives, only to discover common ground in what we all have lived through. "Every note and every word bears tremendous weight, every time we pick up our instruments we put our hearts on the table. This record captures that." - Luis
