Teased earlier this year with the slick intimacy of Completely, Alpines’ album ‘Another River’ pares down the sound of their 2014 debut ‘Oasis’. This new effort is not so much the sound of a duo finding their feet, as it is an utterly standout performance from a couple of intrepid sonic experimenters subtly refining their craft.

Their futurist brand of production renders Catherine Pockson’s R&B melodies into dazzling soundscapes, each thrumming with a life of its own. The album is preceded by the release of ‘Heaven’, an anthem with towering vocal harmonies and a sly bass groove.
