Alphabeat Alpha BeatPop-rock group originating from Silkeborg, Denmark. Originally named "Sodastar", but they changed the band's name to avoid confusion with a German group already called "Sodastar". In 2007, the group released their debut album "Alphabeat" in Denmark. Their 2008 album "This Is Alphabeat" was released worldwide, and although it contained many of the same tracks as the original 2007 release, the tracks now in general had a more polished/mainstream pop sound. Until 2012, the group released two additional albums, "The Spell" in 2009 and "Express Non-Stop" in 2012, before going on a hiatus. During the hiatus, several of the band members released music from their own projects. In early 2019, the group reunited, released the single "Shadows" and announced a European tour.
