In celebration of their debut album Cleave earlier this year, today dynamic electronic pop duo Vallis Alps announce their return to Australia touring the country in March 2024. Alongside the tour news comes the second of a series of remixes from the album. Following long-time friends Mansionair’s most recent remix of ‘You & I’ is the official rework of ‘Start Again’ from Eora / Sydney’s GAUCI.

Returning a year after their first shows in Australia following their six-year-long hiatus, the pair head to Naarm/Melbourne, Meanjin/Brisbane and Eora/Sydney hitting 170 Russell, the Metro Theatre and The Tivoli this coming March 2024.
The vibrant original ‘Start Again’ garnered major attention from the likes of triple j, Double J, iHeartradio, 10 Magazine, SBS, and more, and saw the pair shuffle to the cycle of self-doubt and the pendulum swing of self-esteem with bubbling synths subtly growing with each skip of assurance and empowerment. Enlisting Eora / Sydney’s own indie-pop trio GAUCI, the remix for ‘Start Again’ flexes a relentless heartbeat and a no-frills, David Guetta-type energy that breathes new life into the track.
Of the remix, GAUCI share, “We were so keen when Vallis asked us to remix a song off their new record. They’re Australian royalty in our eyes so we had to pull out all the stops. Parissa’s voice suits so many styles so the hardest bit was what direction to go in! Locked in for 24hrs and came up this ode to the simpler days of euphoric dance floor fillers.”. Vallis Alps add, “The moment we heard this remix we were in love with it. There’s something really contagious and unique about all of the things Gauci make, and this is no exception. We’ve been friends with Antonia for years, and she engineered some of our first-ever releases. It’s so awesome to continue the collaboration in a different way.”
In their first album, Vallis Alps demonstrated the transformation of their contrasting forces from states of turbulence and friction into a flourishing partnership. NME Australia praised them as “the sound of a band standing in its truth – the whole truth and nothing but the truth, no matter how dark and ugly it can get.” Vallis Alps revealed a unique prism of electro-pop in their debut, as sonically diverse as the stories that unfold across its twelve tracks.
The collaboration of Parissa Tosif and David Ansari pays homage to the trailblazers from Vallis Alps’ early days (Chrome Sparks, Shlohmo, Baths), while maintaining a forward-thinking perspective. From singles like ‘‘You & I’, the assertive ‘Higher Than This‘,’ and the triple j playlisted ‘Start Again‘ to the anthemic ‘Set It Off, Set It Right’ and ‘On The Eve Of The Rush‘, Vallis Alps received acclaim from NME Australia, Bandcamp, Frankie Magazine, 10 Magazine, as well as radio support from triple j, Double J, SBS, FBi Radio, SYN FM, and others for their ability to balance the emotive with the club-thumping. Channeling the affliction of a Joji ballad with the slow-burn impact of Glass Animals and Biig Piig, Cleavestands as a defining, multi-layered statement for Vallis Alps, bringing them closer to their audience than ever before.
