The Buzz on Nine Black Alps

“American groups are more interested in raw attitude, whereas British groups tend to be all about fashion,” explains Nine Black Alps’ singer/guitarist Sam Forrest as to why his band shunned the musical roots of their native Manchester, England in favor of American influences such as Sonic Youth and Neil Young. “Still, influences aside, I don’t quite understand how people can categorize us,” chimes in co-guitarist David Jones. “We’re still struggling to find out where we actually stand ourselves.”
