Stay With Me: Captivating Cambridge band Apteekii bring much-needed calmness to cure the worrying winds on ‘Shelter’

Taken off the upcoming EP ‘Secret Crowds‘, this is a deeply personal song that is inspired by seeing a close friend deal with destructive problems that was so hard to witness, as Apteekii show so much compassion and love with their new single called ‘Shelter‘.

Apteekii is the Finnish word for Pharmacy, and this caring three-piece indie act from Cambridge, England, ease our worries with a sound that is sad at times, but also has a thread of hope there for the taking, if you want to feel it deep withing your bones.

“It’s the music for a dystopian film with hope for the future. There’s a darkness, a sadness, but also a longing and a beauty.” – Apteekii

The vocals are so beautifully translucent, as you feel each part of your body light up with that hopefully glow. The story of seeing a friend hurting is so hard, as the build up takes you to a stunning place that lets you know that being ashamed is not the way to go.

The cinematic feel has you closing your eyes and this is a spectacular story that has your tearing up slightly — but also looking upwards — to see the stars and the positive energy that surrounds us, if we let it.

Shelter‘ from Cambridge three-piece act Apteekii, is a true story about finding the strength within to deal with your issues, no what what they are. You are never alone if you speak up, as there are old friends, new friends and family just waiting to help. You are not alone.
