Vallis Alps sell out Sydney and Melb shows; Announce second and third dates + supports
015 has been a big year for Vallis Alps who after releasing their debut self-titled EP in Jan, have tallied up more than 10 million online plays, supported Of Monsters and Men at sold-out theatre shows, played to a packed out Splendour In the Grass tent, and sold out their own debut headline tour in less than a day.
The celebrations continue this week as the band sell-out two Melbourne Northcote shows (the first sold out in a day), and their first show at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney with second and third dates now added to the tour. This East Coast run of shows will be their last headline performances this year before the duo return to writing their highly anticipated follow-up release due in 2016.
Vallis Alps are also (pretty damn) stoked to be joined by some of their favourite local acts. Nick Hill will be supporting them in Sydney whilst Banff takes the reigns in Brisbane and Life Is Better Blonde join them in Melbourne. Check out their music here before you see them kill it live.
Last week, triple j unearthed revealed a mini-documentary of the band as they went from start to Splendour in the Grass in the space of five weeks. Watch it here.

“…perfect, unique and special…” – Music Feeds
“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
“…The kind of singing that doesn’t need embellishments and stage antics. On the other side of the stage, David moved between a million different pieces of equipment and instruments with so much energy, talent, and explosive drumming…It’s dreamy, but passionate; ethereal but charged…From start to finish, it’s a story, making great use of silence vs. sound…They’re a definite must-see on the live scene right now…” – Art Felicis
“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
