Apre’s new track “Go Somewhere” is out now via Polydor, and attracting critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times….and here at Music Republic Magazine.
Currently working on more music at home during the lockdown, the band are keeping fans up to date via social media posts, alongside ‘isolation’ podcasts. Ironic title for the new single, amid the Coronaviris crisis “lockdown!
A lovely, dreamy, The 1975-esque track which for us, has shades of the fabulous Tears For fears too.
Charlie Brown and Jules Konieczny met at a chess club and formed alt. pop duo Apre in Kent in 2018. Their debut single, “All Yours”, was released in April that year, followed by their debut EP, “The Movement of Time”, the next month.
Their second EP, “Drum Machines Killed Music”, dropped in September 2018, before their first single on Polydor, “Backstreet”, a month later. Their third EP, “Everyone’s Commute”, was released in March 2019.
A 12″ vinyl record containing tracks from their three EPs, was released as part of Record Store Day 2019. Polydor released the band’s debut EP on their label, “The Gun’s Down”, last November (2019). “Go Somewhere” is their 11th single.
The London-based band describe their music as, and we quote verbatim: “Alternative Wonky Indie Electronic pop”. The big question from that is, why is pop not a capital P? lol
They have acoustic versions of a couple of their tracks appearing on the soundtrack of a BBC drama soon…
We tip this band (they are a four-piece live) for big success, and high chart action for their debut album, whenever that may come.
