Island Apollo Interview: Band Holds It Down With Latest Single

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…

Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here” First Trailer is Here!!

Hey guys! It’s been almost 3 months since Zach Braff’s new Kickstarter project “Wish I Was Here” premiered at Sundance Film Festival and FINALLY we get a trailer to go along with all the hype. There isn’t really much dialogue in the trailer but the cinematography looks very impressive and Zach couldn’t have picked a better song to lay over it. He went with “Simple Song” by The Shins which is off of their most recent 2012 album “Ports of Morrow”. He seems to really love The Shins, if you remember he used two of their songs (“New Slang” and “Caring is Creepy”) in his first film Garden State which really helped the band get recognized. Wish I Was Here will be release July 18th. I can’t wait until we get another trailer and some clips perhaps? Check out the very first trailer for what is sure to be one hell of a film….
