THE ARTIST

Chinese Tiger Parents. British Optimism. Queer Millennial Emotional Crisis. Alex Lau grew up playing classical violin and piano, took up opera and became the youngest ever Musical Director of the Royal Berkshire Academy.
Alex says: “My surname is difficult for some British people, so I’m used to spelling it out: Lima Alpha Uniform.

THE MUSIC

Lima Alpha Uniform’s live sets channel deeply emotional vocals and soulful keys to a bassy beat. Their sounds include r&b, neo-soul, melodic house and electronica.

They have collaborated with producers including the house stylings of Andrea Consoli (Warner, Ninja Tune) and the disco grooves of Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco).
Insides Out, a collaboration with Andrea Consoli and Jimmy Logic, was DJ Mag’s “Album of the Month” in 2015.
That name reflects my upbringing, my queerness and my music. In each, I’m an outsider, trying to build bridges.”

YOUNG ONES

ANDREA CONSOLI and LIMA ALPHA UNIFORM team up on new single ‘ YOUNG ONES ’ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE 15th November 2019

Written between London and Johannesburg, ‘ Young Ones’ is about your first love, that moment frozen in time, the universal feeling.

You see your first love on the street: it’s been so long that at first you don’t even recognise them. But then the memories come flooding back.
The music video features Lima Alpha Uniform, a queer artist of British-Chinese origin, alongside Wassim Gilbert, a.k.a Baba Ganoosh, a popular mixed-race drag artist, both based in Johannesburg, South Africa. It depicts a young, queer, mixed-race romance in the 90s.

Lima Alpha Uniform says: “There was no visibility of mixed-race queer relationships when I was growing up. So this video seeks to change history and set things right, at a time when ‘LGBT’ in the UK is too often mistaken for white gay men.”

Lima Alpha Uniform continues to evolve their mesmerising live work, including performances at Artivist Johannesburg , Tileyard Studios , Sofar Sounds and the London Youtube Space .
