“They’ve drawn comparisons to Caribou and Battles, but its fans of Radiohead and Thom Yorke’s aching falsetto that should really prick up their ears for “Turning Tides”. With hypnotic, forward-thinking production and exotic pitched-percussion, the pair, who formed at the University of Kent, make great strides to create boundary-bashing electronic music. The beats are pure dance, the synths free-floating orbs of serenity, and Drew JH York’s vox glide with impassioned solemnity – put simply, this is a very special track.”
// The Line of Best Fit

“Turning Tides is an embodiment of the passion this young producer has for his craft. The off-piste time signatures coupled with the on-point vocals courtesy of Drew York demonstrate a willingness to play with form and convention that echo influences from the likes of Battles and the works of Thom Yorke.”

“With an emotive vocal delivery, abstract lyrics and a seamless blend of the organic and synthetic, this one really does refuse to sit neatly in any particular pigeon hole.”
// Stereofox

“Drawing influence from FourTet + Radiohead, Apidae release a breathtaking debut single”
// Indie Shuffle
