Alpha Particles’s first single, a upbeat punky/grungy number entitled “It All Went Wrong” landed a feature on two Spotify playlists for the first week of October, 2018, one week after being released on September 25. One playlist “Pacific Local Listeners” curated by Talon Stradley is a local music playlist focused on the music of Long Beach, CA and surrounding cities, while “Punchy Kick” curated by Chicago-based recording engineer and producer Brad Pack has an alternative rock, emo, and pop punk slant. Both playlists are updated weekly.
Alpha Particles’s first single, “It All Went Wrong” has officially gone live. Stream the song on your preferred streaming platform, add it to your playlists, and enjoy! The song went live September 25, 2018 at 12:00am EST, though the release has not gone on without incident. The popular streaming platform Spotify has added the song under a duplicate artist also called Alpha Particles. While we here at AP HQ work this issue out, the song however can still be enjoyed via Spotify, and is not affected in any way on any other streaming platform.
Alpha Particles started mostly as an art project 5 years ago, taking pictures with a broken camera of oftentimes images that were hard to decipher. As the project evolved into something musical, culminating into a band then the ill-fated and forgotten first album, I had a tough relationship with the music that was so difficult to record and perform. After some time apart from it, I feel like it’s finally the right time to give this music the chance it really deserves.
With that, I will be releasing “It All Went Wrong” on streaming services next Tuesday, September 25th. Over the next few months until the end of the year, I will be releasing every song from those original 2014-2015 recording sessions, remixed, remastered, and with love.
