Moscow Apartment - "Halfway"

Hailing from Toronto, Moscow Apartment are mainly a duo of best friends. Their latest single, the mellow yet intense alt rocker "Halfway" is about a falling out the two had. According to a press release:

"One day we had a big fight and Pascale wrote the beginning of our new single, 'Halfway' as a way to ask Brighid for forgiveness. Brighid wrote the second verse and worked on the chorus, giving birth to this song. We produced 'Halfway' with Guillermo Subauste (mixed by Scotty Hard) and approached its recording in an experimental and relaxed mood.

This past fall, the two of us had a really big falling out that was pretty scary in terms of it being hard to take time away from each other when we have an intense musical relationship on top of all the typical drama that teenage best friends go through."

The resulting song is undeniably captivating. You can feel the tension the two friends must have felt as they used their musical connection to rebuild their personal one. It's hesitant and beautiful and quite simply a must listen.

You can watch the video for "Halfway" below. It will be included on Moscow Apartment's upcoming EP Better Daughter. For more on Moscow Apartment, check out their website.
