Just after the release of their new album, Alpines visit the shop.
We're big fans of the Kingston local duo, they were last here 2 years ago and now they are back with their third album, Full Bloom. They've really pushed themselves this time around with their stunning blend of atmospheric R&B / electronica tunes. If you're into the likes of The xx, Jesse Ware or Alunageorge then give these a listen.
While their core influences have always revolved around the music they grew up listening to, Full Bloom is confidently eclectic in its frame of reference and comes across as their most sure-footed work yet. Prince, Aaliyah, Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Kelela, ‘90s rave culture and Massive Attack are just some of the muses channelled in this new work.
Pockson’s primary lyrical concerns are growth, ecology, and change (as the title suggests), alongside the everyday challenges of love, acceptance and hardship, making for a record that’s braver than its predecessors.
In-store Grade B.
Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Full Bloom from us.
