Single Review: Apollo Junction 'Forever'

Last updated : 03 May 2020 By Kevin Markey

'Forever' - *A song about being together and how no matter what - people will pull together.

We review Apollo Junction's brand new single 'Forever' and what about that video?

You could forgive Killers frontman Brandon Flowers listening to the intro on the latest Apollo Junction single ‘Forever’ thinking; ‘When did I record this top tune??’ Such is the ‘killer’ vibe and sound generated by the five-piece combo.

But it's not the rock band from Las Vegas; it's the Leeds electro rock outfit with strong autonomous guitar hooks, driving bass and intense vocals.

The brand new single follows on from their excellent debut album ‘Mystery’ (which is a killer ironically with definitely no filler!)

Like any up and coming band Apollo Junction have influences in their music but at the end of the day they sound like, well Apollo Junction!

Every track on their album could be a single and new song ‘Forever’ is a stunning, memorable, hugely inspiring tune.

'Forever' is the first single from their second album and is showing a huge progression for the band.

*The song was written and recorded in the space of 3 days of band isolation and is about the classic albums and songs that remind you of exact times, places, people and the power of how a song can take you right back to the moments that made you what you are today.

The video is also a homage to the city of Leeds. A city they obviously breath and love. A city behind their band. I personally love the shots of The Mansion at Roundhay Park as my wife and I had our wedding reception there!

There is hype surrounding them to be the next big thing from ‘Up North’ and their music is demanding that you get behind them - ‘Forever'.

Jamie, Matt, Ben, Jonathan & Sam hope to be gigging again in September with shows lined up at the Bingley Weekender on the 4th & 6th & Halifax Piece Hall on the 12th & 13th. Fingers crossed!
