WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM APOLLO JUNCTION – HERE WE ARE
Apollo Junction, the dynamic indie-pop band from the UK, is back with their highly anticipated third album, ‘Here We Are’. This album represents a significant milestone in their career and a testament to their relentless pursuit of musical excellence.
‘Here We Are’ comprises ten masterfully produced tracks that showcase Apollo Junction’s signature uplifting and anthemic sound. In this album, the band skillfully blends searing new wave synth-pop with a dash of rock sensibility.
Hence delivering a narrative that reflects the band’s experiences in a tumultuous world. The collection of songs resonates deeply with those facing adversity but still holding onto their dreams and hopes, even when life knocks them down.
At the core of this new release lies the band’s journey through the challenges of 2022. Their music becomes a source of solace and inspiration, extending a helping hand to those feeling lost or alone. They are also urging action and celebrating the people who stand by our side through thick and thin.
The album kicks off with the peaceful yet powerful track “By The River” and immediately makes a complete shift with “Endings”, reminiscent of the aesthetic of Dutch artist Thomas Azier. From the fusion of rock and electronic elements in “Millions”, to the synth-pop track “Outside”, or the eponymous Coldplay-like indie-rock gem “Here We Are”, the album has a little something for everyone, no matter what your musical preferences are. Again, all of this is under the scope of an optimistic message.
Globally, this new album is a compelling showcase of Apollo Junction’s talent and growth since their official debut in 2019. The tracks follow a journey through the highs and lows of life, wrapped in shimmering instrumentals and soul-stirring lyrics.
As they embark on their biggest tour yet, this album promises to create a fantastic vibe at their upcoming gigs, delivering a surge of warmth and an unforgettable experience for their fans.
Indeed, Apollo Junction is not just about recording music; they are ready to take their electrifying performances on the road with an 8-stop UK tour, starting in Blackpool on October 28.
Several dates are already sold out, demonstrating the immense excitement surrounding this album. The band’s unique approach to touring, including a daytime beach jaunt and an intimate HMV in-store appearance, highlights their passion for creating memorable experiences for their fans.
