In a hair over a week the new album from Apex Manor, Heartbreak City will finally see the light of day. With a slew of singles that have held plenty of indie rock fuzz, their new single “Actual Size” steers in a new direction and should capture your attention with each building note.
While the track has a more electronic feel to it, there’s still plenty of traditional instruments that lie in the background of the mix. It’s a different approach from the fuzzy indie rockers that works, giving your ears a whole new way to hear the band. Even though it’s been eight years since we heard a full length from the band, “Actual Size” makes us think that the album will be worth the wait.
The song is available to stream on all platforms, it can be purchased in all digital music storefronts and you can pre-order Heartbreak City directly from Merge Records on multiple formats ahead of its May 31 release. Apex Manor will perform at The Bootleg Theater on May 30 in Los Angeles, CA and at Merge 30 on July 27 in Carrboro, NC. A complete listing of their performances can be found here.
