Music magazine The Fly said that the album “Redefines what it is to be a guitar band in 2010. A captivating listen from start to finish. Man Alive is the best British guitar debut of 2010.”
Vox caught up with guitarist Alex Robertshaw ahead of their sold out NME Awards Tour gig, who told us how Vox has played a part in carving out their unique sound:
“I used the AC30C2X and the Virage guitar in the studio, when we did the record. I put 13’s on the guitar, as I wanted it to sound as warm as possible. Both together, they do sound really warm. It’s really good on tunes like ‘Leave The Engine Room’. The bands sound is unpredictable; I think that’s the best way to describe it. Each song is completely different. We don’t really have many thrashy guitar sounds or big bar chords. It’s all very single line stuff. You want a guitar that can cut through, is warm, clean and has clarity. That’s why I used this (Virage) pretty much for the whole album.”
