‘Soujourn’ is the 2nd single to be lifted from the forthcoming debut album, “Clock of the Long Now”, by Perth-based instrumental pop outfit Target Archery (the solo project of Ambrose Nock of Perth’s sun-dappled musical instrumentalists Apricot Rail).
On Clock of the Long Now Ambrose Nock explores the fertile realm of delicate, experimental post-pop. Influenced by the likes of Sound Dust-era Stereolab, left-of-centre indie-pop bands such as Lacto-Ovo, The Go! Team and Ninetynine, and a dash of late ’80s Sonic Youth, Target Archery mine an inspiring new seam of life-affirming melodies and instrumental texture. Featuring contributions from Apricot Rail members Justin Manzano (production and instrumentation) and Jack Quirk (guitars), Clock of the Long Now was crafted in an isolated studio in rural Western Australia over a period of three years. Across 40 blissful minutes, Target Archery weave a suite of glimmering musical tapestries that expand beyond the borders of conventional guitar pop.
