Listen: Alta - Moves
The weird and wonderful ALTA have released a beat-laden track filled with elephants, bass, and angelic vocals.
If you are feeling the monotonous drumming of your life slowing closing in on your day to day, look no further than this complex track from Melbourne duo, Alta. Moves has it all, from samples of an elephant's roar (or scream? I don’t know, you tell me) to dripping bass lines that seem to tickle the funniest of bones. Vocals from Hannah Lesser are nothing less than spine tingling. Her shrill pipes seem to uplift the tune which is a mean feat considering the intricate layering of sound. What she does do is ignite the electronic lover in all of us with her impressive and angelic vocal chords.
You dear listener will feel as though you are taken on a liquefied journey through that time and space The Mighty Boosh were talking about. Experimental electro never sounded so tight. For some reason each sample seems to shock and blend perfectly. If you are into synth, prepare for your wildest dreams to become realised. The instrument is used much like a weapon; zapping and winding until you find yourself face down on the ground.
Their EP is due for release in the coming weeks through Caroline Australia, and its snippets of wonderment such as Moves’that make you wonder if you will ever be able to dance to anything else ever again.
