TQA008 : Apillow - Leaves Winter Alone

by TQA Records

supported by


Apillow is a solo project from Patrick Lacharité - guitarist and sound engineer for Below the Sea.

After successfully leading Below The Sea through 3 full-length albums on Where Are My Records and several tours around the world (Europe, Japan, Canada, USA), Patrick Lacharité finally releases a disc of his very own solo work.

Apillow carves and crafts four tracks out of the warm silence, tinkers on an old lonely piano, gently scratches his guittar and processes it through airy effects and mixes it all up with computer-generated percussions to create imaginative and complex build-ups within the minimalism realm.

Much like those of Below The Sea, Apillow’s compositions have these very cinematic and melancholic qualities to them, while being light, sunny and upbeat. This could be your perfect soundtrack for the current autumnal season and you'd wish it'd never ends.
