Having some killer post-punk guitar tone and sensational, swirling melodies delivered through Sonia Weber’s exceptional vocals is just the cherry on top of the band’s cathartic sundae.

Portland’s Alien Boy may be a new band, but Sonia Weber has long been part of the city’s independent music scene. With Alien Boy, she culls from her self-ascribed influences such as Alkaline Trio, The Wipers, and The Smiths, finding ways to take bits of these disparate sounds and make them her own.
