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 pop," their music and self-titled EP are consumed with melodic instrumentals and truthful lyrics. Alumine Soto's Argentinian background plays a strong role in their music most notably through the use of spanish lyrics 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. Featuring Lauren Leshansky on guitar and Andrea Bonvecchio on bass, with Pedro Sanchez playing drums.
Together with Pedro Sanchez, “alumine” is embarked on a west coast tour as a duo with Venezuelan legends The Zeta in the Summer of 2017 . Playing major cities such as Nashville, Colorado Springs, Reno, Seattle, Portland, Santa Cruz, and Salt Lake City! In Fall 2017 "alumine" performed FEST 16 at the Hardback Cafe in Gainesville, FL.
