Sydney-based independent electronic act Vallis Alps is the brainchild of vocalist Parissa Tosif and producer David Ansari. The pair released their self-titled debut EP in January 2015 and the single “Young” became a hit, ultimately placing at number 27 on Australia’s Triple J Hottest 100. A few singles and a second EP, Fable (March 2017), paved the way for the band’s debut album Cleave, released on August 24.
Released in June, new single “You & I” saw Tosif and Ansari team up with Eric Cannata of Young The Giant as a co-writer and co-producer. Blending bluesy guitars, exquisite vocals and soft beats, the song is about learning to look after relationships – romantic, friendships, creative collaborations – and repair them when something is broken.
