Interview: Alpine On Music Feeds, Sydney 2012
Following the release of their debut album A Is for Alpine, Melbourne self-described pop outfit Alpine caught up with Feeds for a bit of a chat and a beer while they were in town.
Currently touring in support of the album, which was greeted with thunderous applause (from both fans and industry) the band opened up about how they describe their own sound. Despite having many different genre labels thrown at them – including the dreaded ‘hipster music’ – the band has managed to avoid being pinned to one particular category, something they attribute to the array of influences they draw from when making music.
Unlike with their EP, Zurich, which was written by only a couple of members, the band pulled together and wrote the album as a total collective force, thus massively increasing their creative pool. This is a practice that seems to be working pretty freaking well.
The band will be hitting the festival rounds later in the year, so far confirming that they’ll be at Canberra’s Foreshore Festival after they wrap-up their current tour.
