Aloric’s Prince Tribute: When Doves Cry

If you’re still missing Prince and would like to see and hear something amazing and beautiful, check out this cover of “When Doves Cry” by London-based band Aloric. It’s also available as a ‘name your price’ download on Bandcamp.

The true mindblower, for me anyway, is that this band seems relatively new, like a year or so? Their music is ambient, atmospheric, angelic, mesmerizing, sometimes complex — and quite stunning.

Here’s another taste of ALORIC, from about eight months ago. Definitely one to keep an eye (and both ears) on.

Introducing… Aloric

It begins and soft, minimalist and ethereal and travels on a long journey, arriving at something driving, theatrical and epic. It seems this is just the second song from new London-based band, Aloric, which is really quite remarkable, given its sophistication. Apparently, this quiet, wistful song is a tribute to the late Jeff Buckley. It tells the story of his meeting with his estranged father, told from the artist’s perspective. “Grace” is available as a free download on Bandcamp.

Their debut track, released back in the summer, was titled “Who?” and it was completely different in style, moving from heavy industrial to sparsely beautiful piano ballad. I don’t whether or not to call their music “experimental,” “avant-garde classical” or what have you, but with the otherworldly free-spirit vocals and changing orchestration that combines acoustic and electronic, discordance and peace, it certainly is beautiful.
