Israeli post-funk nine-piece instrumental outfit The Apples release their latest album ‘Fly On It’ through Audio Montage on 30th July.
Kings of raw funk, The Apples have been creating genre melting, infectious grooves for nearly a decade. Blending a composition of decks, horns, double bass, drums and electronic effects, The Apples create a big band vibe mixed with their Middle Eastern influences, to create a signature sound that pushes the boundaries of modern funk.
The group played a sold out string of UK & Europe shows bringing their raw energy, brute force and drum breaks to the stage where their sound really flourishes. The Apples also garnered praise and international success for the now notorious track ‘Killing’, a cover of Rage Against The Machine and their spine tingling tribute to Amy Winehouse with their cover of ‘You Know I’m No Good’.
At their best, live, The Apples allow their origin of spontaneous composition to shine, working audiences into a booty-shaking, body heaving frenzy. Recent live appearances include the WOMAD, Camp Bestival and Secret Garden Party festivals.
Release date: Jul 30, 2012
