altopalo is the Venn diagram between four unique talents in the New York underground.

The guitarist also plays in Moses Sumney's live band, while the singer is signed to Terrible Records for his solo output; the rest of the band are no slouches, either, playing with Amber Mark and Kevin Garrett.

Matching cutting edge technology against incredible songwriting chops and a desire to move a little deeper, altopalo are already being talked about in hushes tones.

Little wonder. New single 'Terra' is simply wonderful, an astonishing statement that matches crackling electronics against hushed, tender vocals.

A real slow burning piece of melody, 'Terra' moves with rare grace, achieving incredible intimacy despite its daring digital approach.

We're completely smitten. Tune in below.
