From the album The Rescue (p) 2005 Temporary Residence, Ltd.
'Surry Hills' is lifted from Apricot Rail's sophomore album "Quarrels" (February 2013 through Hidden Shoal Recordings). The music video by Chad Peacock comes from his currently in production documentary concerning communities in Cambodia and features work by Australian artist Kyle Hughes Odgers (kylehughesodgers.com).
'Surry Hills' gradually blooms from a shimmering haze of harmonics and ride cymbal into a delicious interweave of resonant guitars and woodwind melodies. The song's restraint becomes its strength as the hairs on the back of your neck slowly rise. Inhabiting a similar sonic space to Sweden's marvellous trio Tape, 'Surry Hills' is destined to garner a fresh new raft of fans for Apricot Rail's addictive brand of melodic instrumental pop.
A Thousand Lights - The concept for this work is based around an abstract aerial view of flying from across the globe over Western Australia into Perth city. Abstract geometric pattern areas showcasing the environment with various colour changes from oranges,yellows of the desert to blues of the ocean and rivers. Bursts of colour highlighting life and activity within the growing metropolis of Perth and surrounding areas.
