New Treat #29: Alpines

I am getting really slow on these New Treats, will try to be better asap! But this one really is a treat. Alpines describe their music as ‘Night Pop’ and its creating quite a stir. ‘Drive’ has already been played on the Zane Lowe show and their new video of ‘Ice & Arrows’ is causing an online buzz and I am getting right on board that as this band are really special. They first produced a couple of mysterious videos on their YouTube and have kept a lot of that mystery. The two songs online are ‘Drive’ and ‘Ice & Arrows’ the latter being much more chilled and ‘Drive’ having a great dance beat. Catherine Pockson’s vocals are ethereal yet strong, a mixture between Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) and La Roux. The music is pop but quite different and they have already been signed to a major label, Polydor, so I could see them becoming the next big thing. Their EP is due to be released on March 27th and I expect an album later this year. They are currently touring and playing as support to Fenech Soler and play Koko with them on March 31st.
