ALL AGES: A is for Alpine, six friends from Melbourne who make bold, twinkling, sophisticated pop music. Their debut almost-self-titled record is a collection of vibrant songs that shimmer and shine with colourful harmonies and inventive melodies. Featuring the dual vocals of front women Phoebe Baker and Lou James, Christian O’Brien on guitar, Ryan Lamb on bass, Tim Royall on keys and Phil Tucker on drums, Alpine traverse diverse themes, ideas and sounds on the album, always assured, but never quite taking themselves too seriously.
Since forming, Alpine have toured with the likes of Kimbra, Sia, Cloud Control, The Jezabels, The Naked And Famous and Matt Corby to name but a few, and have graced festivals across the country including Splendour In The Grass, Southbound and Falls Festival. They were invited to perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas in 2012 and surely must be able to claim some kind of record for playing 10 shows in a mere three days.
Getting together, playing music they love, having a good time, dancing - seems to work exceptionally well for Alpine, and is reflected in their exuberant live shows, where energy and charisma reign supreme. Their infectious enthusiasm also finds its way onto 'A Is For Alpine', a debut album that introduces six friends in love with what they do, and express that through their music.
Alpine's album tour sees them pairing up with Melbourne's Clubfeet and Perth's Georgi Kay.
