We were highly impressed by Moscow Apartment‘s single ‘Halfway‘ released last month and their new release, ‘New Girl’ is a clear indication of the songwriting strength and sustainability of this talented Canadian duo.

While ‘New Girl’ continues the same delicate musical vulnerability of ‘Halfway’, it incorporates within itself a muscular spine with its heartfelt themes dealing with sexism and misogyny:

There was one week where we were cat called probably 10 times; we felt fed up and wanted to write a song  about men not respecting women’s boundaries, especially in public.

The result is a layered rhythmic song imbued with steel and self-determinism in its lyrics:

Moscow Apartment combine crystalline guitars with ethereal vocal harmonies infused with melancholy and wistfulness. Sublime music.

You can get the single through Hidden Pony Records and download/stream here. Moscow Apartment will be releasing an EP entitled ‘Better Daughter’ in July.
