band comment “Alive & Kickin’ was the first song that we wrote after the release of our third album and we liked it so much we decided to released immediately instead waiting for the rest of the tracks for the fourth album to be ready (yes, we are working on it!). With this song we decided to experiment a little with the sound of the synth, using it for the main riff. The lyrics talk about a very passionate love story and the melody is one of those that can get stuck in your head for days. In our eyes this song is like missing link between London and the love power ballad that we haven’t written yet”
About the 6 tracks EP the band adds:
“Enter Please is in some way a follow-up of our third album Untamed. The new track Alive & Kickin’ is a melodic rock song with a catchy synth riff – it’s a “rock club dancefloor” kind of song. Then we have our personal version of two well known 70’s rock songs, Get It On by T-Rex and Saturday Night’s Alright by Elton John; our intent is to show how music from the past can still be relevant and make you have a good time in the present. The second half of the EP is a live version of three songs from our album Untamed – we want people to know what a Sandness live concert sounds like”
