Vallis Alps share the stems from their debut EP, ahead of their appearance at Groovin The Moo
Capping off a marvellous 2015 which culminated in scoring #27 in the Hottest 100.
Vallis Alps are the definition of a self-made band. Their first EP was independently released, which was incredibly brave considering no one knew who they were in the industry beforehand. Their music spoke for itself and quickly got the attention of critics and the public alike, with the duo eventually playing to 8000 adoring fans at Splendour In the Grass, and their single Young taking out #27 in the 2015 Hottest 100.
To celebrate a bloody good entry in the Australian music scene, Vallis Alps have released the stems of that first self-titled EP, saying, "This decision was made following a conversation we had on the importance of being transparent about our ideas, processes, and skills in order to contribute to a more open and collaborative world. During the recording and mixing of our EP, we watched countless YouTube videos and received advice from many musicians and friends that influenced the style, texture, and instrumentation of our music. It was really empowering for us to learn from others and to hear about their respective creative processes. We hope that releasing our stems will not only allow people to understand how our music was made, but also encourage other creatives to reflect on sharing their ideas."
