Diamond Thug - Apastron Vinyl
The South African Space-Rock / Dream-Pop band release their highly acclaimed ‘unconventional, ethereal alt-pop debut soaked in reverb’.
Apastron [uh-pas-truh n, -tron] noun, plural apastra [uh-pas-truh]. Astronomy
The point in the path of a celestial object orbiting a star at which it is farthest from the star.
As a body of work, ‘Apastron’ represents a sonic coming of age for the band. With slow swelling synthesizers, psychedelic break downs and honeycomb vocals, the band pull you into their world and allow you to lose yourself in a 44 minute emotional adventure through the depths of the band’s understanding of the universe.
‘Apastron’ tells a story of celestial beings dancing amidst the stars, pulled together and pushed apart by forces beyond their control.
The 12 track album has been featured as Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight, an accolade much revered that has previously featured artists such as: Shekhinah, Josh Kempen and Moonga K.
The band have also received significant playlisting on Spotify (US, UK & AUS), gathering millions of streams on the album.
A professional product with immaculate attention to detail, ‘Apastron’ is an exceptionally well put together album that sets a new standard for South African independent music.
