alumine originally started as a solo project by Argentinan musician Alumine Soto at the age of fifteen under the name FlowerHead in Miami Beach, Florida. The project was born out of a necessity from Alumine to communicate to the world about the emotional complexity of life, torn friendships, love, and mental illness.
With a unique style that defines itself as "punk indie pop," their music and self-titled EP are consumed with melodic instrumentals and truthful lyrics. Alumine Soto's Argentinian background plays a strong role in their music most notably through the use of Spanish lyrics and imagery. alumine performed at Fest for the first time in the Fall of 2017 after signing with Swamp Records and in May 2018 will perform at Pouzza Fest in Montreal.
