For songwriter Carly Calbero and drummer Nika Wascher, The Alkis was an inevitability. After years of incorporating Wascher's unique drumming and harmonies, the switch to a band just made sense. Their chemistry is undeniable onstage and their rhythmic, high-energy songs are a welcomed change from the typical girls-playing-music. In June they debuted their first EP - Bright Eyed Kids. You can expect some great things from this new Seattle band.
