Apricot Ink is an alt-pop trio from Australia that formed just last year. Since then they have skyrocketed to the forefront of their local Canberra music scene, while also winning new fans for their groove-heavy electronic pop from all around the world.
After dropping two double singles last year, top track "Carmelyzed Crusade" from "Lucky Rainbow" gave us a delicious taste of their low key mix of pop melody, hip hop beats, and euphoric production chops.
Returning with "Make Believe," this heartfelt gem came together during a writing trip in Northern NSW — where the band spent a lot of time exploring different song ideas as well as soaking up nature. The result is an inviting juxtaposition of natural sounds against that imaginative feeling of wistfulness that comes just before sleep. This mixture of gorgeous vocal harmony, rhythmic guitar hooks, and ethereal imagery teaches us to appreciate the importance of timing and patience.
With a bigger release on the horizon, keep your ears and eyes peeled for more from this inspiring trio.
