Sydney-based electronic duo Vallis Alps today share their new single ‘Oceans’, their most vibrant track to date. Listen to it below:

Parissa Tosif and David Ansari of Vallis Alps say of the track, ““Oceans was born from a conversation we had about Tahirih, a 19th century woman who fought and died for the emancipation of women in Iran. It led us to think about the daily sacrifices that women make for the fight for equality and we wanted to write a song about carrying that weight and thriving in spite of it. As Oceans formed, it became both a celebration and an expression of admiration for those figures in our lives and in history that are examples of this.””

Oceans‘ follows the release of the band’s second EP, Fable which was independently released in March 2017. Made up of an eclectic collection of songs that vary in tempo, tone and subject matter, the EP included celebrated tracks ‘Fading‘, ‘East‘, ‘Run‘ and ‘Serity‘.

The pair have since taken to the road, touring the Fable EP at festivals around the world including Falls Festival (Aus), Lightning In A Bottle (US), Splendour In The Grass (Aus), We The Fest (Indonesia), Reading & Leeds (U.K.), North Coast (US), Listen Out (Aus), Oh Yes (Aus) and Spilt Milk (Aus), as well as 35 sold out headline dates across the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.

Sydney’s electro-pop duo Vallis Alps proved they can bundle intimacy with an explosive live set.

“There was not a single dull moment during the 45-minute set.”
The Brag

“Vallis Alps are delivering all the feels with their ‘Fable’ tour…It was a crowded house and the excitement was palpable, bringing out a breed of energy in the duo’s performance not expected from their ethereal tunes…what followed was an impassioned set.”
Fashion Journal

“Melodic vocals intertwined with heavy drops and lunar-themed graphics complimented the sounds perfectly to add another dimension to the already out-of-this-world experience…Vallis Alps never failed to deliver the trance inducing melodies and bouncy-bassy drops.”
Grok Online

“Vocalist Parissa’s stage presence is so elegant and soothing, the visual epitome of her vocals. Her graceful movements are a pleasure to witness live, though as equally so is producer David’s passion and energy.”

“A chill, pop sound unlike any other, Vallis Alps are truly a unique electronic outfit with a stellar live show.”
Speaker TV

“Wrapping up the set with ‘Fading’ was truly as majestic a moment as they come, and as the whole Metro Theatre were united in singing the chorus, a moment of reflection came of wonder and pride for these incredible talented artists who were selling out their second Sydney show in two nights. One can’t help but think that despite everything they’ve achieved, we’ve only just scratched the surface of what Vallis Alps are capable of.”
The Interns

“East is one of their most energetic and hard-hitting songs yet.”
The Line Of Best Fit

“As Vallis Alps reach the end of their set, we feel pure joy and happiness.”
