Describe your music in five words or less.
What’s going on right now in the world of Apricot Rail?
In the midst of writing our second record which is slowly taking shape. We’re launching our new single at the Bakery on the 6th of August which is the first of a new batch of songs, as well as supporting Marnie Stern and Akron Family in the coming months. Jack also just bought a new amp and its tone is pure golden!
What are the worst and best gigs you’ve ever played and why?
Launching the first album was pretty fun & had a good vibe to it. Some of the most enjoyable have been simply playing to a few friends in a suburban lounge room or kitchen. Most of the lesser shows have been the ones plagued by technical problems, making do without a decent sound-check or trying to cram in on a small stage. With our set-up there[s so many things that can go wrong and gigs often descend into damage control fairly quickly.
Tell us something about your music that we might not know.
Each song takes a really, really long time to write.
