Moonfruits – Atoms of the Apartment
Release: April 29, 2022
Moving from a grungy ’90s electric guitar to a vibrant crescendo of strings, horns, and synths, ‘Atoms of the Apartment’ follows the thread of the charming vocal interplay between Moonfruits partners Kaitlin Milroy and Alex Millaire – with a lesson in quantum physics as well.
On tour with a sleepy bandmate (Kaitlin) and a broken car radio, Alex’s mind wandered to ‘The Drama of the Universe’, an uncracked 70s era coffee table book borrowed from his grandparents-in-law. Billions of years of history dorkily divided into the acts of an opera. This percolated, and a nerdy, upbeat love song to their apartment took root.
Co-produced by Moonfruits and Charles & Olivier Fairfield (drums); featuring the talents of Liv Cazzola (mission organ, synth), Tobias Meis (double bass), Kelly Lefaive (violin), and Brian Sanderson (horns); and recorded at nCode Studio in Ottawa, ‘Atoms of the Apartment’ is Moonfruits’ driving, chamber-orchestra-backed, kaleidoscopic ode to the quirks and quarks of home – the first single off their upcoming album, Salt.
