Alpines’ ‘Completely’ Will Give You Chills [Stream]

The production on the new single, “Completely,” from Alpines straight up sends chills down my spine. The track jumps right into an trap beat that pulses throughout, intensified by the electrically-charged vocals from Catherine Pockson that burn with urgency — repeating “you make it seem so easy / the way you have me completely” as she wrestles with conflicting emotions. With Bob Matthews orchestrating the beats, the familiar electro-pop sound from this London-based duo has slowly shifted to make room for a darker R&B vibe, and this unpredictable nature is working for them. “Completely” is the first we’ve heard from Alpines since their 2014 Oasis debut, which hopefully means a second album is on the horizon.
