Australian Band Alpine To Support Empire Of The Sun On U.s. September 2013 Tour

Lauded Australian outfit Alpine is set to support Empire of the Sun on a U.S. run this fall. Since forming, Alpine have toured extensively with the likes of Grouplove, Kimbra, The Naked And Famous and Matt Corby. Additionally, the band performed at SXSW 2013 and has appeared at various festivals worldwide including Splendour In The Grass, Southbound and Falls Festival.

A Is For Alpine, the debut album from the band is available now on Votiv. The new release, which was chosen as iTunes' Australian Alternative Album of the Year, has received early critical praise from Rolling Stone and USA Today with Pitchfork calling it an "unforgettably light and charismatic gem." The album recently streamed in its entirety on NYTimes.com and  the latest video for the track "Gasoline" premiered on NPR.org as a "First Watch":http://n.pr/10iXPtG.

Alpine is Phoebe Baker and Lou James (dual vocals), Christian O'Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keys) and Phil Tucker (drums). The new album was recorded in Melbourne with producer Dann Hume who helped the band experiment with sounds and textures. Of the record Lamb notes, "We wanted to represent the different sides of our music, so there's some sad moments, some dancey moments, some rocking out and lots of harmonies." No strangers to the benefits of shared ideas and the collaborative process, Alpine's own methods for song writing reflect the strong and respectful working relationship they had with Hume. Baker describes the new album as the band's "innocent and not so innocent explorations through our twenty-something emotions."
