  • Apricot Rail's Debut Album Released

    Jul 13 2009, 11h57 por Hidden_Shoal

    http://agora.hiddenshoal.com/images/medium/apricotrailalbum_MED.jpgHidden Shoal Recordings are proud to announce the release of the debut self-titled album by Perth-based multi-instrumental pop quintet Apricot Rail.

    Apricot Rail produce some of the most discretely charming, lush instrumental pop music you’re likely to hear all year. Delicate, bell-like arpeggiated guitars weave around snaking clarinet and flute, while the beautifully held back yet sanguine rhythm section drives the whole thing into a blurred, sun-soaked horizon.

    Their debut album features the wonderfully received single ‘Pouring Milk Out The Window’, an anthem without ever having to be anthemic, a melancholic reverie that never resorts to the emotional ease of sadness. ‘If You Can’t Join Them, Beat Them’, which featured on the 2009 Spunk Singles Club compilation album, is another chiming standout. And gorgeous closing track ‘Halfway House’ weaves in bubbling electronics as the band lead the listener through glowing landscapes and light-drenched vistas.
