Five years after their long-awaited No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal album, The Apartments rebound with In And Out Of The Light, an album to lose yourself in.

Idyllic melodies tease us into single Pocketful Of Sunshine, which introduces the album. Write Your Way Out Of Town ups the tempo, dropping in a steady beat to accompany Peter Milton Walsh’s rich and rustic vocals, which mirror the equally solemn lyrics. A quirk of the album sees Walsh duet with himself as overdubbed vocals play two different sets off lyrics simultaneously. Walsh’s reputation continues to precede him, with vocals that remain alluring, and stripped lyrics which continue to be filled with a relatable, heartfelt melancholy.
