Last month, we excitedly featured Melbourne alt-tronica/trip-hop/experimental duo ALTA and their superb ‘Stepping Out’ single. Since then, Julius Dowson and Hannah Lesser have taken a short break from the live setting to focus on the recently released ‘Game Broke Out’ EP, the long awaited follow-up to their debut ‘Stay Awhile’ EP. This 6-track effort exemplifies what all good EP’s should; it shows a mature diversity which is ambitious and it’s unafraid to cross genres. From ‘We Said Go’, which fuses trip-hop with ambient and UK sounds seamlessly, to the earthy guitar driven ‘Old Tricks’; Alta’s sound is unique and captivating and the intertwining elements of Lesser’s incredible voice with Dowson’s concise production is pure fire.
Alta will be performing at the upcoming Paradise Festival in Victoria. Tickets and information HERE.
