The side project of Guy Berryman (Coldplay), Magne Furuholmen (A-Ha) and Jonas Bjerre (Mew) are to release a new single. Titled “Electric Eye”, it promises to be interesting given the range of influences offered up by the various members. Although virtually unknown within most circles, Apparatjik have in fact released material before, pedaling their unique brand of dream-pop from early last year, as well as contributing the track “Ferreting” to a compilation album for the BBC2 series Amazon
“Electric Eye” will be released on 30th November, with a debut album reported to follow next year.
For a quick introduction to the band, here is “Ferreting”.
