In late 2015, four-­piece indie-­rock band Alibi were fairly fresh faces in the Hastings music scene, releasing their self-­titled EP and gigging locally. Since then they’ve gigged extensively in the South East, performed on BBC Introducing the South and had their new single "Space, Man" played by Huw Stephens on Radio 1. BBC Introducing invited Alibi to play Reading & Leeds and made the single Space, Man Radio One Track of the week in the run up to the festivals.

Maxi Williams (lead vocals/guitar), Matt Edwards (lead guitar/vocals), Benji Meacham (bass/vocals) & Wesley Brown (drums) state their influences among The Black Keys, The Libertines, Spring King and The Smiths. Their tight vocals and strong stage presence further expectations as they continue to gain momentum, and as well as a progression in sound, Alibi have recently taken their first steps from locally filmed music videos on the beaches of Hastings and Bexhill to professionally filmed, in-­studio videos -­ beginning with their new video for “Space, Man”.
With their biting guitar-­riffs and boyish charm, Alibi welcome a vast and mixed audience. They have proven to be a secret that Hastings cannot conceal, and thus emerged willing and ready to get you off your feet.

"Alibi are the quintessence of home-­grown rock music, embracing their roots visually as well as lyrically [...] In Alibi’s early material their influences are apparent, though recent tracks indicate a development in their own individual sound as their musical palette evolves." – Carolann Bossom, Caroljunk.
“It will take some careful bomb disposal work to stop them from exploding onto the national scene before much longer. A classic case of 'catch them now before they're too big to play small venues anymore.” John Bownas, The Hastings Flyer.
“"Lovers in the Dark" is the sort of sly guitar pop number that The Libertines could have written when at the peak of their powers [...] Alibi could very well hit big sooner rather than later.” Juliet Harris, The Stinger.
