Echoes is the amazing new album from Manchester based multi instrumentalist and producer Apta.
Utilising a wide range of sound sources, from Eurorack modular to his own guitar and bass playing, the Apta sound is rich, uplifting and alive with invention and lightness.
In a genre of music where there is often more melancholy than outright happiness, Echoes imparts a feeling of joy onto the listener. Apta’s mastery of the gentle guitar figure to compliment intricate synth melodies shines through in tracks such as ‘The Slide’, and in ‘Polar(+)’, with it’s organ chords, synth swirls and electric bass, make you wonder what Sigur Ros would have sounded like if they had chosen a less chaotic left turn with Takk.
Echoes is such a rewarding experience, and in its complex weaving of sounds, will keep surprising you with new treasures with each listen.
