Ballsy Manchester rockers Alias Kid are on a majestic roll. After the storming comeback single ‘She Don’t Yeah Yeah Yeah’ saw the self-assured foursome return in a maelstrom of screeching, life-affirming guitar, latest single ‘Gonna Be A Star’ has them proving they have the dexterity and sheer skill to put together a bonafide anthem too.
Giving The Verve and Ride a run for their money, while harnessing the accessible rock’n’roll audacity of Slade, reverb-soaked drums and shimmering riffs bolster singer Maz Behdjet’s salutation to brash, single-minded ambition and the utter certitude of getting to the top. If their current trajectory is anything to go by, this track looks like it may well end up as an incredibly satisfying self-fulfilling prophecy.
‘Gonna Be A Star’ was released on 25th August 2023 and you can find it on all of the streaming platforms right now. You can also check out our interview with the band from last year. We’ve got the YouTube lyric video for you below:
