New music is sometimes the hardest to get ahold of, especially when looking for something that isn’t generic and on the radio. Alpine (Twitter, Facebook), an alternative band from Australia, is set to debut their first album tomorrow, May 21, on Votiv. Set to be on showcase with the Spanish rockers Crystal Fighters this coming summer, the band has recently been named iTunes’ Australian Alternative Album of the Year and will be making their rounds on United States soil.
Their debut album, called A is for Alpine, is full of contemporary pop and airy arrangements. The latest single from their album, “Gasoline,” is full of smooth melodies and a steady beat that allows for easy listening and a calming influence. The band’s music ranges from upbeat styles to more fluid and slow timings that convey the emotions behind the songs. The harmonious play of voices and instruments catches the ear like nothing else and Alpine comes to the top with their engaging music videos, the latest being based on their single “Seeing Red” from the same album. It sees the group rocketed into space and uses visuals to enhance upon their already engaging melodies.
With their new sound and light, upbeat tracks, Alpine is sure to be a treat to any listener and a good addition to any alternative collection. Overall, the album is quite the new experience and great for those looking for a fresh sound coming from their speakers.
