Petter Ericson Stakee (the lead singer and guitarist) was born in Sweden.
Alberta Cross has previously played support for Mumford and Sons, Portugal, Neil Young and Them Crooked Vultures.
The act has previously been featured on multiple US hit TV series such as Million Little Pieces, Sons of Anarchy and Californication.
Favourite place on planet earth: Most likely 'The Wool Hall' where Alberta Cross recently recorded their upcoming album 'Sinking Ships'.
'Between You And Me' is one of those songs that immediately grabs your attention, but simultaneously has the production depth and maturity to hold your attention beyond the first listen.
Right from the opening of the song you realise that you're onto something special. The unique pulsating synth intro combines with a sumptuous tremolo guitar line, which opens up perfectly to Petter's perfectly smooth vocal.
The brilliant dreamy vocal performance combines with the extremely catchy chorus to having you singing along in no time.
I was once told that 'a song is only good if it can stand alone with just vocal and acoustic guitar'. I have no doubt that 'Between You And Me' would pass that test with ease. However, add airy atmospheric keys, punchy guitar lines, rich sounding drums, flawless production and a fantastic grounding bass line and you're left with an exceptional piece of music.
