Based in Los Angeles, California, Alpha Particles is the music and visual art project headed by multi-instrumentalist and composer Allen Morris.
"It all began with the name and some experimental photography I was doing with a broken DSLR camera..." explains Morris on the origin of the band, "...It was more of an mental exercise of how to express an idea or emotion. I viewed it more as a body of work, more so than a band." Music however was soon to follow culminating in 2016's shoegaze-inspired Alpha Particles LP which featured Morris performing all instrument and vocal duties. The album is a direct reaction to the changes in way people interact with each other and ultimately with themselves through the advance of social technology, all seen through a distorted but not hazy lens of electric guitars. After a successful solo tour in 2017, Allen began to play around with the Alpha Particles idea once more, eventually expanding into an actual band with Mariella Riat and Daniel Fowler (of Emote Ctrl) performing bass, drums, and vocal duties. After only four weeks of rehearsals, a renewed Alpha Particles came back in summer 2018 with it's first shows in two years, filming music videos in preparation to release a string of singles this fall. Alpha Particles is currently in pre-production of new material to be debuted soon.
