VALLIS ALPS Share New Single ‘Oceans’
Sydney-based electronic duo Vallis Alps to go on UK & EU headline tour this October.
Another track from the Sydney-based duo Vallis Alps called Oceans to start our September off.
Their March release, Fable EP, is followed up with something a little different. Still holding their artist thread, it takes a step away from their electronic heavy moments heard in East and more into what Fading explored sound wise. Smooth vocals are balanced with more upbeat electronic production. It’s fluid and confident which they have always maintained and rightly so. It also sounds fresh and with this exploration of new approaches is intriguing.
Vallis Alps say of the track:
‘Oceans’ was born from a conversation we had about Tahirih, a 19th century woman who fought and died for the emancipation of women in Iran. It led to us thinking about the daily sacrifices that women make – as mothers, as protectors, as luminaries – and we wanted to write a song about carrying that weight and thriving in spite of it. As Oceans formed, it became both a celebration and an expression of admiration for those figures in our lives and in history that are examples of this.

Vallis Alps were recently on the line up at Reading & Leeds Festivals, backed it up with two shows at London’s gorgeous venue, Omeara that both sold out, casually. They will be jumping around Australia, Europe and the UK for the next couple of months if you can catch.
