“This album is the distillation of everything we have been exploring in our music up until now, says the band. “It points forward into a (brave) new world of sonic development for us – in the songwriting and scope of what we are trying to achieve. We are very proud to announce our new album, ‘Apricity,’ into the world today. It seems like only a few weeks back we set off to Los Angeles to record with Jason Falkner at our friend Jonathan Wilson’s amazing studio in Echo Park. Recording to 2-inch analogue tape we set about recording the album in this most creative Californian space before returning to the UK for final mixing at our humble studio in Canterbury.”
