Premiere: Alphington – 'Jason, Jesus Loves You'

Friday, September 21, 2018

Melbourne band Alphington have released their debut single and video ‘Jason, Jesus Loves You’ today and it’s a special one.

It’s a song ultimately about lost love; being too scared and too young to admit that you want someone. Singer and lyricist Alif Thomas Dodds wanted to make Australian music, fit with references of the Great Ocean Road and Torquay, weaved with their Muslim background. Teaming up with Jules Pacoe of Jazz Party and Jaala fame and Angus Leslie from Sex on Toast, Alphington have made something akin to the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Bright Eyes.

The track is a strong introduction to the depth of Alphington’s earnest, warm sound.
