Alone at Parties Returns With New Song “Oranges & Apples”
Romanian alt-pop band Alone at Parties, consisting of Lazăr, Florin, Andrei, Dani and Patricia, returned with a new song “Oranges & Apples” alongside a music video on November 11, 2022.
The song is their first single in almost one year since the 2021 “Another Car”.
The track is about shared boredom — that unavoidable part of every relationship.
The band lead vocalist Lazăr said of the song, “The initial idea of the song started about 4 years ago as an acoustic sketch. About 2 years ago Andrei [producer, Cirkular] & I started to work together on it, toying with rhythms and melodies to create a basic demo for it. About half a year ago, Andrei re-listened to it one morning and felt that it needed something extra and came up with the uplifting outro melody & arrangement.”
- The accompanying video was directed by Irina Alexiu.
Filmed during super early mornings & late late summer evenings, it's a story of the quirky and spontaneous friendship between two strangers.
Irina Alexiu said of the video, “The music video is inspired by the strong bond I had over the years with my female friends. Some of the friendships were short-lived but left an important mark on my development into a woman and a creative being”.
Lazăr added, “Just like for the Another Car video I took the cameo route. We filmed in Vadu, a natural beach that's part of the Danube Delta and waking up at 5 was never before such a pleasure. It's captivating really to be a fly on the wall at video shoots and watching Iulia & Andra (the actresses) develop a friendship on screen was something else.”
