New Year Ninety 2017 – 10 to 2

Winding towards the number one spot on the Readers’ Selection on the New Year Ninety Chart – 10 to 2.

The more perspicacious readers will have noticed you didn’t get the opportunity to vote on anything – and that is quite correct – as with the Readers’ Selection for Band of the Month – the chart is made up from a number of stats from on-site and off-site activity – fed in to an algorithm and the results are calculated on those factors – not a –  ‘voting system’.

From the LP Any Human Heart, which is scheduled for later in the year, Fear Of Heights is the second track to surface.

Opening with a sequence of piano the track melts like chocolate in a warming bowl merging hushed merges of vocal, percussion, guitars and electronics to be joined by a scintillating harp which gives the track a distinctive other-worldliness.

The Aprons – Day Off – Video

The Israeli atmospheric-indie duo The Aprons are planning to release the LP Any Human Heart later in the year.

The Aprons - Day Off

The Aprons

The first track to appear from the album is Day Off.

Although it has been three years since The Aprons last featured, there is an immediately recognisable sound that floats into the ears. Their music always makes me think of dandelion clocks dispersing in the breeze as the tracks have the delicacy of gossamer wings and Day Off is a good example of their style.

A mirage like vocal is surrounded by softness of instrumentation while the bass and percussion form the solidity of Day Off as The Aprons make a welcome return in to earshot.
