Vallis Alps announce October tour; share triple j unearthed mini-doco
Following their stunning debut festival performance at Splendour In the Grass, Vallis Alps are pleased to announce new shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this October. This will be their last headline shows this year before the duo return to writing their highly anticipated follow-up release due in 2016.
These dates will follow their first handful of live performances including two sold-out shows supporting Of Monsters And Men at the Forum and State Theatre as well as Splendour’s Official Byron Bay Pre-Party alongside the likes of Flight Facilities, Elliphant and Tkay Maidza.
The bands unique beginnings, transcontinental development and this last months intense period of pre-show preparation was perfectly captured by triple j’s Unearthed team in a short mini-documentary which can be seen below:
This week Vallis Alps began their run of debut headline Australian shows, starting with a packed-out Goodgod last night and will play Melbourne’s Shebeen tonight. Both shows sold out in less than a day.

“We don’t think we’ve ever seen a Sunday morning turn-out as big as the one this dreamy duo pulled for their first ever festival set…It’s baffling to think this was the twosome’s fourth ever performance – it was that damn good.” – triple j
“Her voice is just angelic from the moment she begins, weaving in and out of the delicate piano melodies and contrasting against the heavy bass lines. Towards the end of their set, Tosif reveals that it’s their first show and we’re all a little stunned at how good they are.” – The Music
“…the perfect mix of live instrumentation, vocals and electronica…David Ansari showcased his amazing musical understanding and talent as he smoothly switched from percussion to synth to guitar to keyboard…Vallis Alps ended with their tune Young sending goose bumps over the audience’s bodies.” – Speaker TV
