New Audio: Introducing the Anthemic Indie Pop Sounds of Island Apollo

Formed in 2014, Island Apollo is a Southern California-based quintet ┬áthat has quickly emerged as one of the region’s up-and-coming bands for a breezy and anthemic sound that meshes indie rock and synth pop — and as you’ll hear on their rousingly anthemic Eric Lilavois-proudced new single “Feeling You,” the up and coming Southern Californian band’s sound reminds me quite a bit of Wang Chung‘s “Everybody Have Fun,” Cut Copy, Miami Horror and St. Lucia, as the band pairs a dance floor friendly, 80s synth pop inspired groove, complete with warm blasts of horns with swooning and urgently earnest sentiment and rousing, arena rock ready hooks. Interestingly enough, as the band explains in press notes, their latest single is an anthem of true loyalty and devotion, “a song about standing by someone even when they’re at their most lowest point: because that’s really when they need you the most.”
