Apidae are producer and multi-instrumentalist Greg Hummell and musician and producer Drew JH York. The duo, who met while at the University of Kent in 2013, have released their debut single Turning Tides on Swedish label Dumont Dumont.
Of the accompanying video for Turning Tides (directed by Piers Bailey), Apidae said:
There’s a theme of transition within the lyrics, describing an important turning point in life. We tried to capture that feeling in the video, juxtaposing the run up to, and come down of, a single night out.
Turning Tides is a cool confection of shifting electronic beats and instrumentation and York’s delicate falsetto, which floats effortlessly through the song’s phalanx of sounds.
Turning Tides, backed with two remixes, is out now, available on iTunes.
