Aloud: All about vinyl but “A Little Bit Low”

Fiery, vintage rockers Aloud,are huge fans of vinyl.  In fact, lead vocalist/guitarist Jen de la Osa almost exclusively listens to music on vinyl, and the band plans to release their forthcoming album on vinyl as well.
 
With a sound reminiscent of Alabama Shakes, Dr. Dog, Fitz and the Tantrums, The Black Keys, and The Love Language, Boston-based Aloud is known for their lead pair’s, “tight male/female vocals, exceptionally strong songwriting, and energy-filled live performances.” (Boston Music Live) . Henry Beguiristain (lead vocals/guitar) and  Jen de la Osa (lead vocals/guitar)  have been writing songs together since they were teenagers.  They moved from their hometown of Miami, FL to Boston, founded  Aloud, and began touring extensively in early 2008 to support their album Fan The Fury. It was during this time their constant rhythm section departed due to conflicting priorities, but in 2009, Aloud welcomed aboard Charles Murphy (bass/backing vocals). In 2010,Aloud released the folkier-edged Exile and toured the U.S. coast-to-coast to promote it, rocking major venues like  Paradise Rock Club (Boston), Mercury Lounge (NYC), The Double Door (Chicago), and Exit/In (Nashville).  Frank Hegyi (drums/percussion) joined as Aloud’s drummer in early 2012, and the four feature their refined, songwriting sensibilities on their forthcoming album It’s Got To Be Now, out 4/1/14.

The first single, “A Little Bit Low” is the perfect example of Aloud‘s signature “refined, well-crafted rock songs that still have that loose, shaggy excitement that made all of us fall in love with rock & roll to begin with.” (Elmore Magazine) It’s “catchier than a cold and equally contagious to those who listen. ” (Revolution 360)

“Raw, honest, and, in the end, a damn fine rock and roll band doing it on their terms,” (Boston Phoenix)
Aloud welcomes their energetic, guitar-driven single “A Little Bit Low” (released on Mother West Records), showcasing their, “tight male/female vocals, exceptionally strong songwriting, and energy-filled live performances.” (Boston Music Live)

For our returning fans this is the richest experience they’ll ever have and have something to be excited about and enjoy from the moment our doors open to till the sun risesSunday morning. Get ready for one amazing KAHBANG weekend. We’re excited to host New England and visitors from afar.” -Tim Lo, KahBang Executive Director

“Our team has spent the last nine months planning the coolest birthday party we could think to throw ourselves. KAHBANG is all about discovery and we decided very early on to adapt our format to allow more people to experience our event without having to buy a ticket. The music lineup is the most diverse we have ever assembled and we have already had incredible response from people all over the country letting us know how excited they are to participate in this year’s event. We began this festival in part to showcase Bangor and we are encouraging people from New England and all over to come and explore what KAHBANG and this region has to offer. I don’t believe they will be disappointed.” -Joshua Gass, KahBang Creative Director
