Melbourne-based band Alpine has been tiding their native country as well as making a splash in the States with their infectious, dreamy electro-pop music. The sextet is fronted by female vocalists Phoebe Baker and Lou James, and composed of Christian O’Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keyboard) and Phil Tucker (drums).
Alpine dropped their debut album, A is for Alpine, last May, charming their listeners with crisp, fresh beats, haunting vocals and a spoonful of melodic tidbits. They've played SXSW for the past two years and have been stamping their sound touring both the U.S. and Australia. They swung by the Sonicbids headquarters in Boston to serenade us with a stripped down office gig, and we caught up with front woman Lou James to chat about the band’s career and how they got to where they are today.
