Originally started as a solo project by Argentinan musician Alumine Soto at the age of fifteen under the name FlowerHead in Miami Beach, Florida. The project was born out of a necessity from Alumine to communicate to the world about the emotional complexity of life, torn friendships, love, and mental illness.
Everything is included within its artistic expression.
With a unique style that defines itself as "punk indie queer pop," their music and self-titled EP are consumed with melodic instrumentals and truthful lyrics. Alumine Soto's Argentinian background also plays a strong role in their music, most visibly through Spanish song titles and imagery.
The band's most current release: a 4-track EP that bears the same name as the project (alumine S / T) was recorded in Goldentone Studios by Rob McGregor (Against Me!, Hot Water Music, etc) and distributed by Whelmed Records.
Together with Pedro Sanchez, “alumine” is embarking on a west coast tour with Venezuelan legends The Zeta! In pre-production phase of recording a new EP, preparing to tour Colombia, and Peru as well as performing at FEST 16 in Gainesville FL.
