What Is Destructive Is Addictive In April Towers’ “Tel Aviv”

Guilty as charged

Nottingham duo April Towers taps into our addictive tendency to destructive things in their new zany synthpop single “Tel Aviv.” Built on battering drums, stomping beats, and spiking choruses, “Tel Aviv” is a dark track in disguise that sounds festive. But as you ingest the lyrics, the song chants about our toxic tendency to seek out what is ultimately bad for us:

“It’s a song about instability, about being attracted to something that isn’t good for you”, shared vocalist Alex Noble.

The other half of April Towers is Charlie Burely (production, samples, guitars & keyboards) who together with Alex started out April Towers in August 2013. Since then, they’ve played at major festivals around the world and have had their work featured in many playlists, including FIFA. “Tel Aviv” is from their debut album Certified Freaky, which will be out this spring. They also have show dates coming up:

4/7 – Fox And Newt (Leeds, UK)

4/14 – Weston Homes Community Stadium (Colchester, UK)

4/19 – Archsapce (London, UK)
