In 2016 Alibi, a four-piece indie-rock band, were fresh faces in the Hastings music scene, releasing their self-titled EP and gigging locally. Since then they’ve gigged extensively in the South East, performed on BBC Introducing the South and had their new single “Space, Man” played by Huw Stephens on Radio 1. BBC Introducing Invited Alibi to play Reading & Leeds and made the single Space, Man Radio One Track of the week in the run up to the festivals.
Maxi Williams (lead vocals/guitar), Matt Edwards (lead guitar/vocals), Benji Meacham (bass/vocals) & Wesley Brown (drums) state their influences among The Black Keys, The Libertines, Spring King and The Smiths. Their tight vocals and strong stage presence further expectations as they continue to gain momentum, and as well as a progression in sound, Alibi have recently taken their first steps from locally filmed music videos on the beaches of Hastings and Bexhill to professionally filmed, in-studio videos - beginning with their new video for “Space, Man”. With their biting guitar-riffs and boyish charm, Alibi welcome a vast and mixed audience. They have proven to be a secret that Hastings cannot conceal, and thus emerged willing and ready to get you off your feet.
