Alchemista is a Coventry-based five-piece band playing an eclectic mix of songs, ranging from ethereal and epic to catchy and up-tempo. Reviewing their last EP “Clear Skies to See” in Hot Music Live (a publication promoting originals music in Coventry and Warwickshire) Andy Holdcroft said, “Alchemista are definitely a band unlike any others around here currently and I recommend their classic song writing and playing style to you. The tracks are admirably clear, and you can appreciate both the excellent vocals and often very subtle instrumental touches. Above all, the songs have very clear meanings and have obviously been wrought with care, intelligence and love".
