Aptøsrs deliver a brilliant glimpse into their upcoming album through new single 'Rust Mountain'

  • 1 min read

The new instrumental project from Independent Music Award-nominated composer and songwriter Paul Terry, Aptøsrs blends glistening synthwave sounds with cinematic orchestrations, lead bass guitar, piano, and drums that glitch between downtempo, breakbeat, and rock. An expansive project, Aptøsrs has hit the ground running with the release of seminal debut single 'Rust Mountain', delivering a striking sound that will stay with you for weeks to come.

Aptly called an "instrumental tour-de-force" by publications like Obscure Sound, 'Rust Mountain' is instantly enchanting, delivering a brilliant blend of haunting orchestral sounds, dissonant industrials tones, and bold string arrangements. Built perfectly on Paul's ability to craft climactic, yet atmospheric melodies, the new single is an arresting listen that will leave you entranced.

From soaring symphonic moments to stormy, rhythmic sounds, 'Rust Mountain' is a haunting cut, pushing through ghostly moments and escalating percussion that keep you on the very edge of your seat.

'Rust Mountain', and the forthcoming album 'Elders', are both mixed by Adam Noble (Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, Don Broco), and mastered by Grammy Award nominee Robin Schmidt (Pixies, Royal Blood, Wolf Alice).

The new single is taken upcoming album 'Elders', while the project itself represents Paul's passionate and diverse work, whose eclectic inspirations and tendency for heady atmospheric momentum make for a stirring sound here.

Paul has composed and produced more than thirty soundtracks. His other musical collaborations include Anneke van Giersbergen and Love Amongst Ruin (ex-Placebo drummer Steve Hewitt's band).
