"Combining elements of indie, folk and pop, Alamo Race Track are ready to take the US by storm with their hooky goodness".

Filter Magazine "Weird and wonderful enough to make you stop whatever you are doing, in order to seek out everything the band has recorded." New York Press Amsterdam-based indie rock band ALAMO RACE TRACK are adept at drawing with multiple sources to create their sound.

On their new record, Unicorn Loves Deer, the band seems to be toying with a Midwest sound, with dreamy vocal harmonics that are set against gentle instrumental descends and carefully balanced cadences.

Now and again the listener gets a feeling that a raucous campfire sing-along is just about to break out; a trick that the band have always been brilliant at conjuring up.

Unicorn Loves Deer is ALAMO RACE TRACK's third album and yet their most soulful and melancholic up to now.

ALAMO RACE TRACK's reputation as masterful purveyors of multidimensional pop is again reinforced.

ALAMO RACE TRACK are set for their break-trough after their success in the US with their last album.

The single "Black Cat John Brown" was used in top-tv series like Gray's Anatomy, Gossip Girl and mnay more.

Sounds like: The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons.
