The Apartments is an Australian indie band formed 1978 in Brisbane by Peter Walsh (guitar, vocals), Michael O'Connell (guitar, vocals), Peter Whitby (bass, vocals) and Peter Martin (drums). Walsh, who was briefly a member of the Go-Betweens and The Laughing Clowns, has been the band's only constant member through their lineup changes. They secured a record contract with UK's Rough Trade on the strength of the single "All You Wanted", and released their debut album The Evening Visits and Stays For Years, which received rave reviews from music critics who drew comparisons with the music of Cocteau Twins, Felt and Nick Cave. After a long gap they released their second album in 1992, the excellent Drift. They follow up with a string of equally superb albums with A Life Full of Farewells (1995), Fête foraine (1996), Apart (1997) and No Song No Spell No Madrigal (2015). The band continues to work periodically and enjoys a strong following in France.
