David Knight - 11th Feb 2011

Alpines are part of the new new wave of deeply cool electronica duos, and their video for killer debut Drive by Hope Audikana enhances their air of mystery with a not-quite negative photographic style and radical white borders (that bleed right into the blog - too weird!).

Ryan from Hope Audikana would rather keep the secret of the technique at the moment, but presumably Simon Astbury, who graded at Unit, was heavily involved. the result is a completely distinctive and beautiful video.
