Roaring from Chesterfield, UK, Alpaca Factory remind fondly of early Arctic Monkeys, particularly the album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. Get seduced by the juicy guitar riffs and punchy yet balanced percussion on new track “They Say the Devil Wears Prada.” The band’s observational lyrical style recalls a set of real events at a Halloween house party. Led by Tom Gannon’s confident vocal presence, Alpaca Factory’s tightly produced sound and knack for melodies makes the band’s young age (all members are sixth formers) all the more impressive and promising.
The band elaborates on the track more below:
The lyrics of the song are quite self-explanatory, it’s about a boy who ends up getting an ex to cheat on her boyfriend with him on a one night stand during a Halloween party. The song is inspired by a real Halloween house party, after Tom (vocalist) saw a girl dressed up in a devil outfit. He based the story around the premise of what often occurs at teenage house parties (as we’re all 17).
“They Say the Devil Wears Prada” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
