Apricot Rail - Basket Press

Apricot Rail - Basket Press
Formed in 2008, Apricot Rail is Ambrose Nock (guitar), Jack Quirk (guitar), Matthew Saville (drums), Daniel Burt (bass), Mayuka Juber (clarinet/flute) and Justin Manzano (guitar/electronics). In November 2008, the then-quintet headed into Kingdom studios under the guidance of Simon Struthers (Umpire, Adam Said Galore, Mukaizake) to record their self-titled debut album, released on Hidden Shoal in 2009. Since its release, the album has been wowing fans and critics alike, with feature album status galore across Australian radio, charting in US college radio (including a number 1!), and receiving glowing reviews left, right and centre. The band has also been nominated for Favourite Newcomer in the Western Australian Music Industry Awards.

About this track...

‘Basket Press’ opens Apricot Rail’s long-awaited sophomore album Quarrels in fine style. Led by the band’s unmistakably chiming guitars and overlaid with gorgeous woodwinds, the song’s melodic weave soon builds into a triumphant final chapter. The track is a wonderful introduction to Quarrels’ multi-part song structures and beautiful unfurling melodies.
