Vallis Alps

Parissa Tosif and David Ansari are the Sydney-based electronic duo, Vallis Alps.


Since releasing their independent self-titled debut EP in Jan 2015, the pair’s mesmerizing tunes have clocked over 3+ million SoundCloud plays (27, 000 of which appeared in the first 24 hours) and peaked at #1 on Hype Machine upon release. On the strength of their music alone, Vallis Alps were named as triple j Unearthed, AIR and FBi Radio feature artists and were more recently included as Zan Rowe’s ‘Song You Need To Hear’ on CBC’s Public Radio Picks. They also continued to make their mark on the Aus iTunes Electronic Album and Singles Chart for ‘Young’ at #2 and #23 respectively, debuting in the Top 100 Australian ARIA singles chart - an impressive feat for a new independent act.


As the year continued, the pair went on to complete sold out tours in Australia, London, Paris and the U.S., including festival plays such as Splendour In The Grass, Groovin The Moo, SXSW, The Great Escape and more. More recently, they released an official remix for Troye Sivan’s ‘Ease ft. Broods’ which has clocked over 250k plays, with their own music now sitting at over 30 million streams online.


In 2016, the pair released 'Fading', their first single from their forthcoming sophomore Fable EP. Off the back of one song alone, the pair have toured the National Falls Festival and sold out their biggest tour dates yet across North America and Australia, including four back to back shows at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne and two shows at the Metro Theatre in Sydney,


In 2017, the band released their second single ‘East’ and returned to the United States this May for their second headline tour for the year and their debut US festival set at Lightning In A Bottle. Vallis Alps will head to the UK for two sold out headline shows in London in August and will be performing at Reading and Leeds Festival.
