Alphavox' sound may be defined as
Interstellar Trip-Hop, influenced by British Bristol movement of Massive Attack
and Portishead, as well as drum'n'bass styles. Electronic-pop bands like
Depeche Mode can also be cited as an influence.
Elements like thick lo-fi grooves and dense drones, funky bass, acoustic guitar
and ethereal melodic electric guitar leads serve as a canvas for sci-fi
inspired lyrics and vocal melodies.

This yet unsigned band was formed in 1999 by C. Guzman and R.
Paz in Miami, FL. Their demo debut album, mostly comparable to Massive Attack
in style, holds some catchy synth arrangements coupled with drum'n'bass
acoustics, sounding at times like INXS and Simply Red. It only takes a couple
of listens to their 9 song demo CD to find yourself humming "Miss
Eloquence is moving within this Foreign Land...". Unfortunately the
album lacks a "hit" type of a song that usually attracts production
companies for a record deal.
