Apidae returns with introspective indie-pop single ‘Still Life’

Apidae is the production project of 25-year-old London-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Greg Hummell. ‘Still Life’ marks his first independent release, following up previous single ‘Turning Tides’.

The new single was co-written with, and features lead vocals from Mazlyn (whose tones compare favourably to Thom Yorke and Rhye). ‘Sill Life’ sees Apidae’s somewhat unconventional palette of acoustic instrumentation expand to include a string quartet, Fender Rhodes and an auto-tuned field recording of a fire alarm.

“Lyrically, Still Life is about feeling trapped and static. It explores an inevitability and hopelessness in expecting change and how long it can last, but also suggest hope that in searching for core values of life and nature we can find a way to be content.” – Mazlyn

‘Still Life’ will also feature on the forthcoming Everything Is Alright EP, which represents a point of steep transition for the project. Labelled as an electronic producer, filed with realms of dance music and synthetic sound – Hummell instead renounces quantised beats and samples of previous work, and instead set out to capture the energy and dynamic of the ensemble of musicians collaborating in the project.
