Following the releases of the ‘Night Drive’ EP, ‘Cocoon’ and their recent collaborations with Maya Jane Cole, Craze + Hoax and Darksky, Alpines announce the release of their new single ‘Empire’ on June 11th.
With support from Grimmy, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and 6 music through to Pitchfork, Fader and Abeano among others, Alpines also found a fan in Florence Welch when she asked them to support Florence and The Machine on their recent sold out Alexandra Palace shows in March; “they sound like The xx crossed with Kate Bush”.
Empire comes backed with remixes from Maribou State, Tessela and CREEP.
