German retro rock duo Alligator Wine release their new live video of Sweetheart On Fire. The track is off the band’s most recent release Demons Of The Mind.
«In these dark times, where the Alligator can’t hit the road to play shows, it was about time to record some quarantine live music! So, here’s Sweetheart On Fire in a spontaneous live version!
«This song is about the dark side of a burning passion. We just went crazy and improvised us through this one, which is one of our personal favorites of our debut album Demons Of The Mind. We hope to party with you guys in person oh so soon again. In the meantime enjoy our first quarantine session», states The Alligator Wine about the live video.
The Alligator Wine was founded in 2016 as an experimental Krautrock project by Rob Vitacca (voice, organ, moog bass and percussion) and Thomas Teufel (drums, spooky voice). Combining the vibes of experimental 70s music with a certain modern pop appeal was the goal. Their unique instrumentation makes them stand out immediately. Going for a distorted organ in a 100% guitar dominated scene and replacing the bass guitar with an analog synth was the key to their sound.
The Alligator Wine released their first EP The Flying Carousel in 2018, followed by the first tour supporting The Picturebooks. Demons of the Mind is the culmination of everything they have done so far. Balancing between suicidal party mode and the deepest, melancholic moments, this album offers a variety of atmospheres that have never been presented quite like this.
