Alpines Cocoon Local Kingston guys Alpines.. They played instore and at New Slang for us on the last single and this is just as good! Fans of The XX listen up. In the wake of receiving critical acclaim for their debut offering ‘Drive’ and a number of online tastemaker tips, the duo from South London have played to excited crowds up and down the country, including Glastonbury, Wireless, Secret Garden Party and a tour support stint with The Naked And Famous. Alpines combine the electric and ethereal sonic landscapes of producer/guitarist Bob Matthews with the ghostly, spectral vocals of Catherine Pockson. Taking inspiration from Cocteau Twins, Eurythmics and Portishead, this is pop music with a deeper and darker tone, but with a richness in sound that makes it a unique listen. http://www.myspace.com/alpinesmusic Polydor 12" Out of Stock
Alpines Night Drive E.P.

They're currently working on their debut album with producer Craig Silvey (Portishead, Arcade Fire, The Horrors).

Alpines themselves see their music as 'Night Pop' a sphere currently dominated by Jamie Woon & James Blake. http://www.facebook.com/alpinesmusic Polydor 10" Out of Stock
