Alpine Green is a beautiful breath of fresh air, from a talented songwriter with a touching, angelic, and captivating voice. Jolé is a solid musician who performs arpeggios on the acoustic guitar, with similar skill to Paddy Casey, and who sings with a confident, effortless tone like Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
A conceptually nostalgic song, Alpine Green will, for sure, be added to all your Summer playlists, further to its Acoustic Pop sound, which although carries a traditional Folk element throughout, remains within current “radio” territory, the same way James Arthur did with his 2016, comeback single Say You Won’t Let Go.
With heartfelt Folk-influenced Pop such as Alpine Green, Jolé easily joins the new wave of artists in the same category, such as Lewis Capaldi and Aaron Smith. However, despite how breathtakingly stunning Jole’s new single is, it was unexpectedly inspired by heartache. It makes a change to hear a break-up song which does not come from a bitter place, but instead reminisces on the positive time one had spent with another, which is even more reason why you should give “Alpine Green” a listen to.
“I wrote this song whilst being really home sick. The narrative is about experiencing something beautiful or uplifting that you wish you could share with someone that can’t be there. It’s about feeling grateful in the moment but wanting someone you love to experience it with you also. However, in not being with that person, holding them in your thoughts or in your memory can sometimes be good enough.” – Jolé
Following Jole’s self-titled album from last year, Alpine Green is taken from his forthcoming, new EP The Silver Lake which drops on August 21st.
