Melbourne songwriter and producer Ben Alpine has shared his second single, Wendouree. The follow up to his debut single, All In Your Stride, the alternative pop track explores the notion of capturing the fleeting joy of the present moment.
Complete with jangly guitar riffs, bursts of synthesised sounds and compelling harmonies, the psychedelic tinged tracks offbeat structure embodies the singers eclectic creative approach to creating music. On Wendouree, Alpine pairs pop sounds with a surging wave of psychedelic energy.
Speaking of the track, Alpine shares: "The main idea is in the line ‘one moment never meant a thing’, referring to those relationships, experiences or situations in your life that, at one point, meant everything to you and you never wanted to lose them. But times have inevitably changed since then and you hold on to different experiences now, and perhaps you will go through that cycle with the stage of your life you're currently in. I think that can be both sobering and comforting in a way, that nothing in your life is ever going to be the way it is right now, and how our perception of our own memories shifts and changes.”
