Vallis Alps share new single ‘Fading’
Vallis Alps return today with their colorful new single, ‘Fading’. The track is taken from their forthcoming Fable EP, set for independent release in 2017. ‘Fading‘ captures the tenderness and warmth of Parissa Tosif’s vocals over effortless, soaring production by David Ansari to create an infectiously uplifting track. Listen to it below:
Vallis Alps say of the track, “We wanted to make a song that was about pure joy; those moments where you feel exhilarated and ecstatic. Encapsulating that feeling ended up being harder than we thought, because as humans we are constantly bombarded with the realities of life around us. In the end, we realised that sometimes joy comes from trying to see things in a new way or from a different angle. We want ‘Fading’ to make people happy; to be an escape from the negativity that surrounds us and a reminder of the beauty that is always present – but sometimes hidden.”
This is the first taste of new music from the Sydney-based duo since the surprise release of their stunning self-titled debut EP in Jan 2015. Trans-continental in nature, independently released and with no initial following, their debut single ‘Young‘ soared to #1 on Hype Machine charts hours after upload, topped on the Australian Shazam charts in its first month and took out the #27 spot in the 2015 Hottest 100, all the while debuting at #2 and #23 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Album and Singles Chart for ‘Young‘.
As the year continued, the pair went on to complete sold out tours in Australia, London, Paris and the U.S., including festival plays such as Splendour In The Grass, Groovin The Moo, SXSW, The Great Escape and more. More recently, they released an official remix for Troye Sivan’s ‘Ease ft. Broods’ which has clocked over 250k plays, with their own music now sitting at over 25 million streams online. Fans of Vallis Alps can catch them across the National Falls Festival in Australia this summer, see here for more details. Details of their forthcoming Fable EP release to come soon.
