Alpines reveal new track ‘Stay’ ahead of sophomore album release
The London duo return with one of the most crafty and emotive R&B records you’ll hear this year, out next Friday October 28 via Metropolis Recordings. Ahead of this, they reveal compelling track ‘Stay’.
‘Stay’ is testament to the considered approach Alpines have adopted on this second offering. Its lush synths match up with a melody that is full of the immediacy of a great dance record, giving it a gripping contemporary edge.
The pair set off on their first extensive headline tour in the UK and Europe this coming February and March consisting of seven UK dates before crossing the channel to play shows in Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin among others.
Another River sees Alpines combining futurist production and R&B melodies into dazzling soundscapes, each thrumming with a life of its own. Masters in creating cerebral and inventive music without compromising on the simple unabashed joy of melody, Bob Matthews and Catherine Pockson here progress into a more spacious emotive outpouring on love and life that will resonate with people everywhere.
Alpines release Another River on the 28th October via Metropolis Recordings and headline London’s Moth Club on the 9th November. There will also be a private preview of the release on the 27th October at Omeara (London Bridge) which as well as free drinks, will exhibit art, video and photography from the campaign as well as DJ sets. Please email for guest list.
Preorder Another River here, including instant downloads of ‘Completely’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Stay’ – available digitally as well as on CD and transparent vinyl, plus numbered white label vinyl (limited to 100) hand-painted by the band.
