Alpines Return with ‘Another River’
Teased earlier this year with the slick intimacy of Completely, Alpines’ sophomore LP Another Riverpares 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. We had a chat with the duo following their recent release…

When did you come together and start making music?
What was the initial direction of your music and how has this developed over time?
Your Sophomore album is coming, following on from Oasis in 2014, after listening to Heaven, the new single, developments are clear, can you expand on these and tell us what to expect from Another River?

Bob – Studio. I love playing live, but if I had to choose one, studio because recorded music lasts forever.
