If you need a new addition to your indie disco playlist for you to dance around to like no one is watching, then look no further. Island Apollo are back, and the new single from this Southern California band combines indie, surf rock and tons of 80s charm. Recalling Duran Duran with its heavy synths and funky undertones, it’s hard not to be compelled to dance by this infectious new song. This fun track also has a whole lot of heart, as lyrically it speaks of standing by those you care about when they are at their lowest. It’s a fantastic little number offering guilt-free good times, fun summery vibes, and plenty of loveable retro appeal. There’s a lot here to like so I urge you to give it pride of place in your summer soundtrack.
If you’re looking for the perfect archetype of a modern rock hit, you’d struggle to find a better fit, or a more well-rounded track, than the new song from LA band Island Apollo. Their new single ‘Hold It Down’ kicks off with some Arctic Monkeys style riffs and a dash of Blossoms brand indie synths, before bringing it all back together for the layered vocal harmonies and slick pop production of its infectious chorus. It’s one of those tracks that can make your dreary walk down the street feel like a total badass surveying their kingdom, the whole world at your feet. Island Apollo are definitely one to watch, with tracks like this it won’t be long until they are on every indie hits playlist worth listening to.
