Good Morning Music Lovers! Would you like some great new music to fill your ears with? Of course you do, why else would you be here?! Today I would like to introduce you to an up-and-coming Orange County band, Island Apollo. The band is made up of five members: Ryan Kilpatrick (Vocals & Guitar), Matty champagne (Drums), Addam Farmer (Bassist), Heath Farmer (Guitarist), and Austin Farmer (keyboardist). The band has released a new song, a follow-up to their 2015 self titled “Island Apollo” EP. At first listen, I absolutely loved “Hold It Down” and it just kept getting better with time. The mixture of the southern grunge guitar sound and crisp clear vocals gives them a sound all their own, can you dig it?!
I was lucky enough to interview the band and ask a handful of questions so we could get to know them a little better. Their answers even helped me digest their music a little differently knowing their background and musical influences. Check out the interview and their latest song “Hold It Down” below…
The four fabulous Frenchmen of Phoenix gave us a lil prezzy today in the form of the title track from their new album “Ti Amo” due out next month! This is the second song they’ve released from the album, following the first release “J-BOY”. I’m biased here because Phoenix is my favorite band but both of these songs are blowing my mind. Out of the two “Ti Amo” has my heart with its dancey beat and the lyrics, trés sexy! Open your legs..I mean EARS ;p and listen to the song below and get excited because we will have that glorious album in our hands in just four weeks! And while you’re waiting head here to pre-order it! Woo!
If you’re going to stop what you’re doing and listen to something today, let it be this song. You won’t be sorry!
