Alpines – Saviour

Alpines is a duo combination of vocalist (and now director) Catherine Pockson and Producer Bob Matthews from Kingston in the UK.

Directed by the groups’ singer Catherine Pockson, the new video for ‘Saviour’ represents Alpines’ most daring and visually stunning effort yet. Shot on the Gower in Wales, the visuals for ‘Saviour’ feature idyllic backdrops, where cascading hills meet restless coastlines to provide the perfect setting for the emotionally charged piece of music produced by the duo.

Speaking of the video, Alpines singer Pockson said, “For me this video came as an all encompassing experience, where it took all of my energy and creative strength to try and represent the track, which is a very important song to me…Saviour is about the strength of a bond that you have with somebody and that bond represents a lifeline and something that is within your blood and veins, which to me is so rich and strong.”

‘Saviour’ is taken from Alpines’ debut album ‘Oasis’ which is out now and available on iTunes.

Deep and sultry sums up Alpines; a duo combination of vocalist Catherine Pockson and Producer Bob Matthews from Kingston in the UK.

Aside from the popularity of the duo’s records, they’ve toured with Florence Welch, and were specially handpicked for All Saints’ very first TV campaign, proving theyre capable of taking all aspects of the music scene by storm.

The video, simply shot in black and white, is both pure and emotive.
