Alpine! If you don’t know this band, go straight to their page on iTunes before going directly to music jail. Fun, fresh and totally fabulous indie-pop champs from hometown Melbourne, Alpine warms WildnFree‘s heart with a blowtorch of catchiness. Lead singers Lou James and Phoebe Baker appear to be gorgeous dags who don’t pretend to be anything other than sweet besties who love to perform, usually dressed in a divine array of fab jump suits. Guitarist Christian O’Brien adds an almost flamenco flair to many of their best tracks. And don’t get me started on bass player Ryan Lamb. Watching him play is a joy, he dances and spins and drips sweat like no other bass player I’ve ever seen.
Lucky for me and you, Alpine will be kicking off a series of shows presented by Shadow Electric at West Brunswick’s Estonian House on Feb 19. Do not miss. I repeat, do not miss. See below for all the details.
This post gives me another excuse to watch the incredible vid for Foolish, off second album Yuck. Get into it:
