VIDEO// ALPINE: Hands (Balcony TV Session)

Fantastic session with Balcony TV from the brilliant Alpine, whose name I still can't decide how to type. Capitals or lowercase? Either way the live version of their single 'Hands' is an absolute stunner. The wonderful Cassie holds a mini-interview with the two leading ladies, which is very interesting, but if music is your focus then the rendition of their latest number will be more than enough. The introduction loses some power when relayed live, but when they're singing something clicks. The instrumentation from the other four band-members is spot-on, and the vocals are equally, if not more ethereal than when I heard them absent face. It's a great video, so stream above and check out the guys at Balcony TV over here!
