Fracture, the new ambient, postrock EP by Row Boat and Apta, is not so much a collaboration as a reuniting of two siblings separated at birth. Two individuals who can finish each others’ sentences, but with a different choice of words.
Fracture begins with “Slowly Home,” from Aptas’s Swept EP. In track two, Row Boat commandeers the song and drives us to the same destination by a different route. At track three we arrive at “Kämpaglöd” from Row Boat’s album, ETT, and in track four we are guided by Apta through that Scandinavian landscape.
