ALPHAS is a musical duo between Fabian Raad and Jarmane McAndrew. They first met in London back in 2010 and have been making music together ever since.

Fabian draws on influences from his well-known family of German musicians, most notably, his Aunt the late Joy Fleming who represented Germany at 1975’s Eurovision contest. Fabian lends his alluring, unique and powerful voice, musicality, melodiousness and stage presence to the duo.

UK born Jarmane equally exploits his musical gifts, bringing his soulful voice to the musical melodies and his poetic flair to the songwriting. He also acts as Creative Director for all the pairs aesthetics.

Not only do they have very different backgrounds geographically but also musically, however they see this as their superpower. “We see our differences as tools that help us to grow as individuals and so we take the time to respect, cultivate and celebrate each other's heritage. This is something that we are always very conscious of in everything we do.”

Together ALPHAS have created a signature sound and style that blends the two of their personalities with perfect symmetry. Their songs have messages in them and the listener is sent on a journey that explains their unique prospect. “For us, our music is a way of documenting the joy and pain of our experiences, a form of therapy. The experience is what got us here today, to this very moment. If others then happen to relate to the final product, then we feel like we have achieved our purpose.”

“Our wish is to always uplift people with our music. No matter what we go through in life there is always hope for a better day. We believe this to be a universal message and in sharing it through music, it also becomes something that continuously helps us remember this through the tough times.”

The video for Dangerous has a nostalgic look which references the 90s dance culture, which accompanies the song perfectly. The video style is simple yet effective and perfectly accentuates the songs storyline.
