APOSTLES GET IN THROUGH YOUR HEAD

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM APOSTLES

One of Wigan’s rising stars, Apostles is back with their fresh new single, Get It Through Your Head. The quintet produces some exciting jangly indie with a traditional vibrant indie sound, well-familiar to the Manchester scene.

Get It Through Your Head bursts in with a Johnny Marr-style riff, reminiscent of There is a Light… However, this is no Smiths cover band, Apostles groove from chord to chord with bouncing verses and anthemic choruses.

Clocking in at around two and a half minutes, Apostles sound mixes both energy in tempo and soothing sound in tones. The guitars continue a similar riff throughout whether it’s through the layers of chords or singular guitar notes. It’s a classic Manchester love for this style of riff-orientated indie rock.

The bridge is full of surprises. The addition of synth notes completely changes the mood and style of the song. It adds a pop-rock element to the mix. From there a blazing guitar solo rips through to bring the track back together with a juicy overdriven tone. It’s a simple solo that gives the listener something extra and adds to the status that Apostles is a well-oiled indie machine.

Underneath the main guitar riff, there are confident bass licks and rattling cymbals adding a whole different structure to what the listener might first hear. The rhythm section is dancing to its own beat and once more reminisces the musical creativity felt in 80s indie. From that variety in instrumentation Get It Through Your Head ends like a flutter in a breeze. Whilst the song may be over, it leaves on a note of anticipation for an album full of similar material.

From big riffs to jangly notes and warm buttery vocals, it’s an indie dream of a single from Apostles. The group returns to the Isle of Wight Fest this Summer and is certainly one to look out for on the bill.
