A year after the release of their album Equals, The Alarm return with their sequential collection, Sigma. A heady cocktail of rhythmic beats and soaring vocals, borne out of Mike Peters’ personal and familial battles with serious illness, Sigma conveys an invigorating relish for life and an affirmation of inner strength. While the context of the album may be dark, Sigma cannot help but lift your mood and engage your senses.

Opening number Blood Red Viral Black feels like a call to arms, and the album that follows provides the inspiration to maintain an irrepressible assault of positivity against all ills. Sure-fire hits Psalm and Equals are particular highlights on an album that is surely a love letter to optimism, perseverance and love itself.
