Australian indie-pop crew Alpine craft pop songs with manicured precision, nudging every sound into exactly the right place. They made some waves a few years ago with their still-great single “Gasoline,” and they’re returning this summer with sophomore LP Yuck. Following the breezy “Foolish,” second single “Come On” is an effective exercise in restraint, a track built around a thudding rhythmic heartbeat and dual frontwomen Phoebe Baker and Lou James’s beautifully harmonized vocals. Needling pinpricks of guitar dance around the edges until all of the song’s elements finally swirl together, igniting briefly and suddenly before simmering back down just as quickly. Listen.
Yuck is out 6/16 via Votiv. Pre-order it here.
