Answered by Alex.

Where did the band start?

The band really started back in college, at Nelson Boys.
Allister and I had been playing music and writing together since we were about 16.
We went off and did our own thing for a while, then regrouped in Auckland in 2016 and created ALAE.

What inspired your new song 'Summer Thing'?

It honestly just came from a need to write a happier song!
I was fortunate enough to work with Justin Gray, our new producer, he brought this one to life.
It’s about enjoying your time with someone, not overthinking and all being happy.

What's your proudest musical moment as a band?

Signing an American record contract and getting to our first million streams on a single were both pretty incredible feelings.
What's a Kiwi song you're loving at the moment? 

Medicine by Balu Brigada.

What's one artist you would love to collaborate with?

Toro Y Moi.
