Vallis Alps ~ Young

Vallis Alps Artwork!

Who is Vallis Alps?  Fresh electronic popish duo: Parissa Tosif (vocals) from Canberra, Australia, and David Ansari (producer) from Seattle, Washington!

My first impression of “Young” :  A gorgeous ode to the excitement of being young through delicious electronic beats, arresting guitar strums and incredibly lush vocals!

My take :  I thought I was bored of hearing the tired old formula of a male electronic producer and a female vocal pairing but VALLIS ALPS reintroduced me to why I dug it in the first place.  “Young” hits me in all the right places, from the tingly plucking of the guitar and the sexy heartbeat of an electronic backdrop of sounds to the soft and velvety lead vocals of Parissa.  Taking me back in time when I had the whole world in front of me.  “Young” seems almost like a nostalgic memory at times but also feels like a celebration of the present.  As in the last line, “this is only just begun, in the end, time forever favors the young”, I guess it all depends on how old I actually feel! 

VALLIS ALPS has hit the ground sprinting with 4 phenomenal tracks released earlier today which I know will be racking up hearts on Hype Machine.  But I would like to think I was one of the little fans at the beginning.  Pick up the debut EP here!

TMH RATING: 8.5/10 On Repeat!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
