Alpines – Lights (single) (Untrue Records)
Euphoric really is the only word to describe the new single. Rich piano and soulful vocals meet heavy percussion and atmospheric guitar textures to create a lush and emotionally weighty composition.
The introduction of electronic beats in the later half of the song sees things steer into Archive territory, especially in terms of production.
Alpines toured with and supported Emeli Sande and Florence and The Machine throughout 2012 and it’s actually those two artists who influence the duo’s latest single. Catherine Pockson’s gorgeous vocals also show inflections of La Roux.
A wonderful start to the new year for Alpines, “Lights” was released as a single on 20 January, 2013 and is available via iTunes now.
