Alkanes are a 2 piece Alternative Rock band hailing from the North of Scotland.

After a number of lineup changes since the birth of the band in 2014, the passion and drive from Alkanes remains the same. Comprising of Dale Sutherland (guitar/vocals) and Connor Meeks (Drums), Alkanes’ blend of emotionally driven lyrics with dynamic riffs and thunderous rhythms creates an intense performance with an energetic and raw live experience.

With a debut EP previously released in 2016, they have since followed up with the intense and dark single ‘Sixes & Sevens’ as well as the highly acclaimed ‘Death or Glory’ and ‘Make It Right’ . Having previously shared the stage with bands such as VUKOVI and Holding Absence, Alkanes are set to continue to pave their own path in the UK’s Alternative scene.

Thick, riffy, grungey goodness. Alkanes most played track on Spotify “Make It Right” is an homage to early 90s grunge with its dragging guitar lines and off-kilter harmonies blending in with the timid lead vocals.

It’s raw and gritty, but harbours a fragility that softens the blow of the harsh instrumentation. An interesting release, almost reminiscent of early Sunny Day Restate but with a little less brevity and a sound that won’t be forgotten. I’m intrigued to hear more!
