Syd Arthur - Apricity
SYD ARTHUR have released a new album "Apricity", today we will play the title track of this folk, Krautrock and saucer-eyed psychedelia jazz band from Canterbury, UK. The band was formed in 2003 by brothers frontman Liam and bassist Joel Magill, drummer Fred Rother and violinist Raven Bush. Rother was officially replaced by the Magills' younger brother Josh in 2016.
SYD ARTHUR is a group who’ve opened for PAUL WELLER and YES and are about to tour with JAKE BUGG.
Today's tune "Apricity", the title track from the new album. It was released on 21 October, 2016. Directed by Liam Magill, Filmed & Edited by Gavin Bush & Projections by Oliver ChiltonP. The Video shows SYD ARTHUR hunched over their instruments playing in near darkness, lit only by flashing shapes and amorphous blobs of colour. It’s suggestive of that clip in most BBC4 documentaries about the ’60s, the one with PINK FLOYD at the UFO club lit only by flashing shapes and amorphous blobs of colour. "Apricity" is oddball, trippy pop music that leapfrogs boundaries and eras.
