Ever wonder what happened to the huge voice of Louisa Strachan from The Vanity Clause? Well wonder no further. She’ steamed up with a fellow Southend native to form Apachelux, a new excursion into the harder side of ElectroPop. With an exhaustive array of influences, these two are just starting their musical journey under this moniker and releasing their début single next month. This is This Time.

It’s a nice combination on unnerving music and warm vocals that makes it a particularly intoxicating tune. We’d be very interested what these guys could do with a little more dancefloor orientation, a little slicker production, as it’s a confident and highly enjoyable début that leaves us wanting to hear more
