about

Two years in the making, Half-Steps Toward Bright Skies is Apple Orchard's debut cd. Devised, conceptualized, manipulated, soaked in reverb and realized by brothers Ryan and Dale Marquez, the album, released on the band's own label, Haymarket Recordings, is an assemblage of twelve of the most pensive, melancholic pop tunes the duo has ever written and recorded. Compared to the minimalist lo-fi bedroom pop of the band's early releases, the duo has expanded their sound in Half-Steps Toward Bright Skies as the songs are drenched with layers upon layers of dreamy keyboards and luminous guitars. With song titles like "Weather Patterns" and "Midnight Stars And Kisses", it's an imperfect soundtrack for the lovelorn, the heartsick and the aimless wanderers.
