Apples: Reason 45 (single)

~ Sunday, 5 July 2009
This hugely infectious debut single from the Midlands band sounds like it could easily have been released in the 80's, having the pop sensibilities of the likes of Haircut 100 and XTC (ask your parents kids).

The jangly guitars and jagged horns work perfectly with the Peter Gabrielesque vocals
. Think Vampire Weekend but happier.

This is a tune built for the summer with a chorus that has more bounce than a fat kid on a trampoline. These guys are definitely destined for great things. One of the best singles we have heard in a long time.
