Canadian musician Colin O’Hearn brings us his latest release under his Apostrophic moniker. The new track titled Waldorf is lifted from the upcoming album These Old Tapes set to drop via Tastefaker Records.
The producer draws influence from an array of artists such as Four Tet, Boards of Canada, Caribou, Radiohead, Clark, and Burial to create his atmospheric electronic sound. While his music is categorised as electronic, it’s difficult to pin down his style which weaves a plethora of textures and rhythms to build a genre-defying sound.
Waldorf is inspired by an apocalyptic landscape devoid of human life, following the journey of an AI program sifting through what remains and piecing together an image of what once was. Commenting on the track, Colin says, “Texturally I wanted something that sounded like an ancient but alien discovery of its own – worn, dusty and lived in. I was also trying to balance a juxtaposition of discovery and wonder alongside rust and decay.”
