'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.
