Band Info


The Alps love tunes - can't get enough of 'em in fact! Similar to less fussy post-punkers The Jam, The Police and Elvis Costello, the Greenwich quartet don't muck about when it comes to knocking together the kind of thorny three-minute gems that look set to barge their way into mainstream consciousness.

Describing their tunes as 'high tempo foot stomping numbers' the band are a handsome bunch, sporting the same square-jawed matinee idol looks that forever haunt the faded celluloid of Hollywood's golden era. The suave bohemians have so far wowed the cool sets at The Metro, 93 Feet East and Cargo, winning a host of new fans along the way.

2004 has been good to The Alps, they won band of the week on XFM's unsigned Exposure Competition in September and in October came second in the Karma Download chart (pipped to the top spot by Franz Ferdinand).
