Alpines were one of our "Ones To Watch: 2012" and with the release of latest single, "Empire", they're starting to prove a good bet.
"Empire" carries on how previous tracks have finished; dark and broody as ever. With that said, the band are showing signs of experimentation and, with this latest track, it's obvious that the duo are looking to push on from simplistic beginnings into a more complex and dare I say it, "catchy" sound.
The style elements of "Drive" and "Ice & Arrows" are still firmly in place and it's now looking like it could get very interesting for Alpines here on in. "Empire" is set for a world release (iTunes) of June 13 and the band will host a sold out, single launch party at The Dalston Roof Park.
