NBM Artists Profile — Alpha380
Alpha380 started in 2009 as 2 members, Alex Pinay and his brother Andrew Pinay. They are influenced by Angels and Airwaves, Blink 182, Ke$ha, Owl City and have similar sounds to them. Their instruments consist of electronic beats with synthesizers, However they still add guitars and drums into the mix to give it a move diverse and punk/emo pop sound.
Alpha380’s lead single off of this new CD Satellite is titled Tonight, Tonight. This song is the first track off of this EP and it is also a good indication as to the direction that Alpha380 is taking. It has a very playful dance beat to it with catchy lyrics inspired by punk rock. The recording aspect of this song was done with perfection. Every note is crisp and alive with a very creative guitar riff in the bridge that sends this song into the stratosphere. It is considered Alpha380’s flagship song as it captures the essence of who this group really is. This song, as are all of their songs, is very relatable, memorable and sustainable in this music industry.
