Alicja is known for garage synth punk, rock n roll, and catchy indie rock songs. Alicja-pop has 2 full length albums and several singles. The latest album “Howlin” (Black & Wyatt Records) was on WFMU radio’s 2021 heavy rotation list. Henry Rollins features Alicja-pop and her other bands often on his weekly radio show, sometimes playing 3 different songs in a row interchanging bands.
“This collection of songs recorded over the last few years is cold, hard proof that Memphis punk vet Alicja Trout is a beast at multiple subgenres. While fans of Trout’s old bands the River City Tanlines and Lost Sounds will drool over the ominous punk and tense new wave on Side B, my favorite tracks are the ones based on low-fi, smoked-out keyboard grooves that kinda remind me of the weirder stuff that the Breeders have been exploring on their last few albums. While the styles on this record are far-ranging, they’re held together by the consistently catchy and sophisticated songwriting. It skips around but there are definitely no skippers.” – Razorcake
