Australian band Alpine performed last night to an enthusiastic crowd at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.
Although their debut album, A is for Alpine, was released a little over two weeks ago, they’ve built a following rather quickly. The crowd fed off the frantic energy coming from the stage as lead singers Lou James and Phoebe Baker belted out vocals while leaving no part of the stage untouched.
The set list included Seeing Red, Softsides, Forever, Hands, Too Safe, Gasoline, and Villages. Their album is so strong, it felt like they were performing songs from a greatest hits album. Expect big things from this band!
Alpine continues its U.S. tour in San Francisco, supporting Crystal Fighters.
