Premiere: Alice Ivy channels Pogo on a fantastic new single, announces Aus' tour

One of the most unique and interesting tracks we've heard so far this year.

Raised on the Victorian surf coast, the daughter of German migrants, Annika Schmarsel AKA Alice Ivy has announced herself firmly on our artists to watch in 2016 with new single, Touch featuring the vocals of Georgia Van Etten. Following a short-lived affair with the clarinet, Schmarsel has turned her attention to beatmakers like The Avalanches and J Dilla, and we're all the better for it.

Having already supported the likes of Banoffee and Remi, Touch is the first taste from her upcoming album, and hints at something special with luscious soundscapes, layered field recordings, intricate samples and guitar work, and the manipulated vocals of Van Etten. To celebrate its release, Alice Ivy is heading out on a six-date tour of Australia, the dates for which you can check out after you've listened to the stream below a few dozen times like we already have:
