Why do we like this?

I just stumbled across this single from six-piece Australian band Alpine on KEXP, featured as their Song of the Day. Recently coming off a SXSW showcase, the female-forward group is gearing up for their full-length album debut on Ivy League Records.

"Hands" was released about six months in anticipation - a long lead time to the album but I believe it will be worth the wait. The female vocalists take a shoegaze approach to their indie-pop instrumental counterparts, all together yielding a crisp, heartfelt track which the college kids are sure to bump over their summer vacays. Alpine's sound have been likened to The XX and Lykke Li, not bad accolades for a band just gearing up in the music world. Personally, I'm hearing Beach House meets Au Revoir Simone.

For more Alpine, check out a remix of "Hands" here, as well as their SoundCloud page to stream their EP Zurich, or check out the, how do you say, unique video for "Hands" below.
