Lovingly referred to by their fans as 'NPR Filler Music on Crack', alice. is an acoustic septet straddling the ever-blurring line between pop, classical chamber music, and avant-garde performance debauchery. Formed in by Seth Fruiterman and Kyle Saulnier, contemporaries with virtually opposite compositional and song-writing styles, the ensemble dubbed their unique sound 'elastic-hybrid-chamber-pop' and began immediately playing fresh originals and take-no-prisoners covers to sold-out crowds all over New York City. alice. (no punctuation, please) has recently released their second album, entitled a.443, a collection of eight originals and two covers, showcasing the band's amazing ability to weave memorable pop songs and complex chamber music.
