SEEN Loves Alpines: Heavenly Soundscapes

If there’s one thing that SEEN adores, it’s a lush musical soundscape and Alpines do not disappoint. They are the duo of Bob Matthews and Catherine Pockson, and their rich, layered sound is very beguiling.

Hailed as the vanguard of new sonic R&B, Alpines release Another River on the 28th October via Metropolis Recordings and headline London’s Moth Club on the 9th November. Lead single Heaven is available to stream now. This is very atmospheric, building to something quite poignant. Pockson’s voice is a vibrant, honeyed thing.

Pre-order Another River, including instant downloads of ‘Completely’ and ‘Heaven’ – available digitally as well as on CD and transparent vinyl, plus numbered white label vinyl records (limited to 100), hand-painted by the band.

The duo’s application has fuelled various collaborations in the fashion world, including the likes of All Saints, Paul Smith and Urban Outfitters. Alpines are masters in creating cerebral and inventive music, without compromising on the simple unabashed joy of melody. Sensibly, the epic production values allow Pockson’s vocals to soar. Another River is an emotive outpouring on love and life that will resonate with people everywhere. It’s easy to see why British pop titans The xx, The Maccabees and Florence Welch are fans. SEEN has joined the ranks of their admirers.
