Taking influences from Dub, Hip Hop and Pop. They move in the alt-pop realm, whilst sprinkling danceable grooves and skank beats. Swinging 808 drums and warm toned guitars in the mix. Apricot Ink takes production influence from The XX and Mac Miller, as well as drawing from BENEE for a pop balance.
Apricot Ink is a new project by a group of Canberra based musicians and producers. Gus, Sara, Willo and Jake make up the 4-piece Alt-Pop project.
“We wrote this one together on a morning after a night out,” said the band. ‘Lucky Rainbow’ started from a story of getting lost and then finding one another. It began as a literal thing (i.e. getting lost from your friends on a night out/at a festival), then it turned into a metaphor for serendipity and growth. Finding luck at the end of the rainbow, whether that’s finding the best version of yourself, or meeting the people that will help you get there.”
Fun. Just. Pop. Just.
A resoundingly innovative and vibin’ single, the band brings this other dimensional warmth that, yes, brings the BENEE operation (as mentioned), but encounters another vision that lingers oh so tantalizingly.
