WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Sydney/New York-based electronic duo Vallis Alps are made up of Parissa Tosif and David Ansari. Vallis Alps' tracks have an unmistakably bright and euphoric sound pairing Tosif¹s effortless vocals with Ansari's vibrant and confident production. Basically, songs that make you want to move. Vallis Alps are excited to share new single So Settled, their latest and last track for 2017. Already topping Spotify's 'New Music Friday' playlist, the track is another taste of the pair’s unmistakably bright and euphoric sound pairing Tosif’s effortless vocals with Ansari’s vibrant and confident production. 

The release of So Settled follows an exciting year for the pair who have since the release of their follow up Fable EP, toured the world playing festival such as 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) and played over 40 sold out headline dates across the U.S., U.K., Europe, Canada and Australia. Read the review of their recent show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg across The NY Times here. 

Recent single ‘Oceans’ boasts itself as a triple j mainstay in 2017, with the track having also peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, #11 on the iTunes Dance Singles Chart and entering into Australia’s Top 100 Shazam Chart at #49.

Vallis also played their first ever acoustic performance of their debut single ‘Young’ at a recent Sofar Sounds session in London as well as their rendition of The Shin’s iconic track, ‘New Slang’ on triple j’s Like A Version. 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Soft, melodic vocals to pillowy synth-pop production. It’s music meant for a quiet evening at home or, in this case, an exceptionally relaxing night out.
— New York Times
God gave rock’n’roll to ya, but the weekends spent sniffing vinyl in small-town junk shops, and the lunchbreaks spent browsing Cheap Trick memorabilia on eBay – that’s all you. Your latest obsession ought to be Riff Raiders: purveyors of poor impulse control, who build blistering rock hits from the guitar up. And yes, it’s a Les Paul.
