ABOUT MORE IMPORTANT THINGS:
In the wake of replacing 3 band members since their last album, Our City (2017, New Granada), Tampa's DieAlps! (pronounced dee-alps) have soldiered on to write and record their most confessional songs to date. These changes challenged and encouraged married duo Cornelia ("Connie") and Frank, giving them new perspective as the primary songwriters.
Not unlike their first self-titled EP (2014, New Granada), the new album digs deep from a well of topics ranging from the current political climate we live in, contemporary views on depression and anxiety, as well as relationship and marital struggles that most modern couples go through these days, while also reevaluating what is truly important in their personal lives and how perspectives seem to change over time.
Sometimes in life, you have to take a step back, regroup and focus on the More Important Things.
PREVIOUS LOVE FOR DIEALPS!
"All in all, the record is as breezy as it is spirited and fits snuggly amidst other exhilarating pop records that wink at the uncomfortable realities of the human experience."
"...a lush combination of early Polyvinyl Records emo and the Shins era Sub Pop" - Innocent Words
"the Tampa-based band made an at times stunningly beautiful debut album with Our City. Spread across a dozen tracks, there is a strong ‘90s alt/college rock influence felt throughout, recalling everyone from The Sundays to Buffalo Tom."
