Alphabeat Tease New Whitney Houston-esque Single “Love Sea”

Well, now we know where Alphabeat went on holiday following their previous single “Vacation” — to the “Love Sea”, naturally. The Danish pop act have teased a minute of the second single from their upcoming third album by noting that the song will be released in full in 10 days (on August 13). And judging by the sound of things, the band was in full-on Whitney Houston mode when they recorded it.

From the opening pop guitar licks to the vocal melody of the “come on closer” refrain, Alphabeat’s “Love Sea” plays like an homage to Whit’s 1985 classic “How Will I Know”. Give the upbeat “Love Sea” a spin above and see if you agree.
