Discovery: Apple Shakers

Apple Shakers are an alternative rock duo based in London whose existential new track caught my attention. It’s called Silhouette.

By Graeme Smith

The opening of Silhouette is stark. Isolated, pleading vocals start the story before a lowdown, moody groove enters. As a rock duo, the band invite the comparison with Royal Blood, but it’s not a superficial one. There’s a similar sense of rule-breaking originality in their sound. The riffs are scuzzy and the percussion marching. Silhouette is a wonderful introduction to their sound.

Already making waves in London, it feels about time for Apple Shakers to blow up on the national and international scenes. Watch out for them on festival stages soon!
