New Track: Feeling You – Island Apollo

Acclaimed indie rock collective ISLAND APOLLO released their new infectious track ‘Feeling You’.

Produced by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius), the single features driving drums, layered vocals, upbeat guitar and synth bass riffs. ‘Feeling You’ is an anthem of true loyalty and devotion, Kilpatrick “it’s a song about standing by someone even when they’re at their lowest point: because that’s really when they need you the most”.

Since their inception in 2014, ISLAND APOLLO has established themselves as one of Southern California’s hottest bands who has seen success with being featured on various Spotify curated playlists and VH1, CBS, PBS, USA Network, Fox Sports, and numerous national ads including Sprint and Sobe.

Combining a classic surf vibe with funky urban grooves, ISLAND APOLLO captures the spirit of a West Coast daydream come to life. With members from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, ISLAND APOLLO is authentically Southern Californian and isn’t afraid to show it. The band has been named Orange County’s “Best Pop Artist” from the OC Music Awards.

New Track! My Place – SleepLust

My Place sleeplust

In the span of less than two years, songstress/poet Meghan Tartamella and twin brothers Michael and Joseph Pepe -aka – SLEEPLUST – has become one of Los Angeles’s most exciting and sought after indie electronic pop outfits.

The trio released their debut self-titled EP in November to critical acclaim and commercial success. Recorded in their hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, the five track release is an homage to the band’s roots, hometown and the major transition periods in life we can all relate to. “The EP really speaks to those shifts in emotions, priorities and relationships. It’s about coming more into ourselves and feeling safe in who/where that is.” Tartamella says wistfully.

My Place sleeplust

Their latest single My Place is the first song written and recorded in the band’s new home of Los Angeles. The three-and-a-half minute production displays the band’s unique trademark, which combines brooding electronics, wandering synths and heavy bass, all brought together by Tartamella’s sultry yet focused melodies.

This Spring,  SLEEPLUST’s music will be featured on major cable networks such as MTV, VH1, E! and Oxygen. The band is also busy headlining select West Coast tour dates and playing festivals this summer.
