When your band's first EP earns acclaim, that's saying something. When it gets you booked on tours with The Shins, Oasis and Bat For Lashes and merits mentions in Rolling Stone, NPR, Spin and, yep, right here at Paste, then you might say that your future's already looking bright.
Such is the case with London's Alberta Cross. The band's debut, 7-song EP, The Thief and the Heartbreaker, garnered high praise; now it's time to take the next step—Alberta Cross' debut album, Broken Side of Time is out now on ATO Records. Coming soon: the band takes to the road for a US tour.
