Alpine are back with a new single to ease our broken hearts from the crushes who didn’t love us back... ‘Dumb’. The groovin’ tune will have you movin’ to the beat wherever you are, it will make you feel dumb, silly and happy all at once.

The Melbourne band is back to their usual tones which sooth the soul. The song stays true to the bands style yet, this song is a little more upbeat than in the past. This song is catchy and will get stuck in your head. After a couple of listens the lyrics might hit you in the feels.

Lead singer Phoebe Baker describes the song in a heartbreaking and realistic description of the ups and downs of hopeless crushes; 

“It's about how we can encourage our romantic imagination to a point of ignorance. Hopeless optimism on a ship of sinking love. There is a somewhat perverse enjoyment found when flirting with someone when ultimately you know it’s going to hurt. There are elements of play to be found within the slow dissolve of a relationship. Satisfaction can still be gained in the midst of an ending.”

Alpine has announced a string of shows for June and July in celebration of their new single.
