ALICE AUSTIN: GOODNIGHT EUPHORIA
ON BIG BLEND RADIO: Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Alice Austin discusses her music and new album “Goodnight Euphoria.” Listen here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on Spreaker, PodBean, or SoundCloud.
Rich with layered instrumentation, this second full-length album was artfully mixed and mastered by Timothy Phillips at Mercy Sound Studios. Besides being a melodic guitar-based rock album, GOODNIGHT EUPHORIA features a diverse collection of performances from Seth Campbell (mellotron and piano), Emily Garcia (violin), and Jon Persson (trumpet). The lyrical content of this collection of songs aims to be easy listening on the surface, with a depth that reaches out to its audience if they are willing to dive deeply into some pretty heavy messages about the love and the laws of physics, haunted guitars, mental illness, suicide, and telepathic communication.
Born in Vermont and currently living in Los Angeles, Alice has written and performed hundreds of songs throughout her musical life. In addition to her solo career, she fronts Black Sabbitch, the Ozzy-endorsed all female Black Sabbath. She was also a founding member and songwriter of Vermont’s all female pop punk band Zola Turn in the early 2000’s, and later Queen Tangerine and Boston’s The Lavas.
