Hailing from Bournemouth, United Kingdom, Xander Allen & The Keys have burst into the music scene with their first album, “The First Marker.”
Lead singer and guitar player, Xander Allen, was wildly successful playing local gigs with musician friends. After holding auditions and solidifying Lee Hammond on bass guitar and Marko Owen on drums, Xander Allen & The Keys were able to make musical gold.
With a hint of Allen’s UK accent, dripping in sex appeal, the single, “Shivers” is sure to have women weak in the knees. Combined with Hammond’s soothing bass and Owen’s punchy drum lines, “Shivers” makes for an easy listening and relatable song. Using familiar imagery of a cold night, Allen paints a picture of lost lover that gives him the shivers.
Another sure fire hit is the single, “Shoebox Alleyway.”With their catchy lyrics, energetic guitar riffs and vehement drum lines, “Shoebox Alleyway,” quickly becomes a song that gets stuck in your head; in a good way.
Rounding out, “The First Marker,” and all equally amazing are: “Different Lies,” “Rushing By,” and, “Roll on Thunder.” Short, sweet, and to the point, “The First Marker” is full of singles that will send Keys climbing to the top of charts everywhere.
