Garden City Movement's debut album Apollonia sees the trio of Roy Avital, Yoav Saar and Johnny Sharoni produce a blend of sounds drawn from their diverse cultural worlds; ranging from art-pop to experimental house to horizontally-aligned vibes. Recording through 2017 at their studio in Tel Aviv, the band took the time to explore their true sound here. From the combination of dream-like vocals and cinematic-RnB in singles "Slightly All The Time," "Before I Fall" and "A Means To An End" to the leftfield four-four of "Mediterranea" and "Sans Titre" or the ethereal jazz of "I Knew Before I Met Her That I Would Lose Her" and worldly influences of the title track - the heightened craft in their production is firmly felt across its 18 tracks. The record takes a darker path lyrically; exploring the breakdown of a fading relationship and the depression, loneliness and abuse that follows. While not explicit, this melancholy grounds the album in the real world. The fusion of forward facing production and confessional account of human-interaction frames an emotional and honest collection of modern soul music.
