Bio

Alaska Gold Rush carves its free folk garage into folk songwriting to extract new forms. The Belgian duo unfolds its stories in songs dressed in poetic texts and subtle melodies with an impressive guitar-drums combination. Renaud (guitar, vocals) and Nicky (drums) fill the whole space, going back and forth between intensity and delicacy in a haunting, wavy movement. Two Gallants meeting Big Thief.

Their 2022 third album “Human Flare” received excellent reviews in France and Belgium: ten luminous tracks on the theme of humans in their relations. This new LP was led by three very different singles: “OD On Sugar” or how to overdose on watered-down speeches, “Trampoline” and his chilling look at the nonsense of bullshit jobs, and the powerful “Arsonist” with these two young partners in crime hanging around after school.
