Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
This band is not normal. I mean this as a compliment of course. Their music is cabaret flavoured and punky.
Singer Caila Lipovsky has a persuasive way of vocalising and the band seems to have gone to Captain Beefheart’s school of weirdness.
“The date” sounds like velvet underground fronted by a more animated Nico.
“Pipsqueak” uses lovely cello lines and has a burlesque mood.
“In the Night” has a father telling his daughter all the terrible things that can happen to her in gruesome detail. It’s a very disturbing song.
Apartment are a special band, blessed with a uniquely dark vison. Go seek them out.
