On 22 Feb why not head down to The Prince Albert in Brighton to see the fantastic Alpines perform the final stage of their UK headline tour. The futuristic duo’s round of live performances in some of the UK’s greatest cities comes after their brilliant single Motionless, and sophomore album Another River.
Motionless was teased late last year with the slick intimacy of Completely. Whilst Alpines’ sophomore LP Another River pares down the sound of their 2014 debut Oasis. This new effort is far from the sound of a duo finding their feet. It is an emotive outpouring on love and life that will resonate with people everywhere. Without a doubt it is an utterly standout performance from a couple of intrepid sonic experimenters. They are subtly refining their craft through their very own futuristic brand of production, rendered to Catherine Pockson’s breath-taking R&B melodies.
“Another River is a beautiful amalgamation of genre, creating the unique sound that is Alpines, and distinguishing it as the standout release of 2016.” – Gig Soup
The duo’s application has fuelled various collaborations in the fashion world, including All Saints, Paul Smith and Urban Outfitters. They also have an unsurprisingly large fan base including British pop titans The XX, The Maccabees and Florence Welch. It’s time for a changing of the guards and Alpines are the new wave!
Alpines released Another River in late 2016 via Metropolis Recordings, ahead of their UK headline tour beginning in February 2017 with support from TUSKS. New single ‘Motionless’ is available to stream online. Order Another River digitally now or as a CD and transparent vinyl, plus numbered white label vinyl (limited to 100) hand-painted by the band.
