A soulful voice and a studio boffin.
It's worked before. Just look at Yazoo, a project which united Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke. Or take a gander at Pet Shop Boys, whose decade spanning career was constructed by just two musicians.
So Alpines are in fine company. Catherine Pockson and producer Bob Matthews took time off recently to find renewed focus, pouring their energy into studio work.
The duo are set to unveil their debut studio album later this year, with new single 'Oasis' dropping on March 3rd.
Tom Beard took charge of the accompanying clip, injecting a sense of restrained, New Wave glamour.
Shot in monochrome, it suits the moody, stylish music whilst also having a distinct identity of its own.
Watch it now.
