Alright, so I'll admit I'm a little late to the game with this song but better late than never, right? What can we say about Alpine? Well, they're Australian. And they're so into social media that when I tweeted this video a few days ago with an excited note that I'd found my indie track of the week for work, they tracked me down and tweeted back with a loving "glad to help <3!!" - how many bands do you know that do that?
Mess + Noise said Alpine evokes "the daydream-y distance of Blonde Redhead and Warpaint" while Beat Magazine called their debut EP Zurich "twinkling compositions of dreamy indie pop simply performed magnificently."
After listening to Villages about 70 times, we humbly agree that this is pretty dreamy. Listen on.
