Apollo Junction are an anthemic electro-rock and roll band crossing genres and taking influence from Britpop to more modern times. Their huge choruses and driving rhythms get crowds singing and dancing all over the world. The first single “Begin” from the band’s debut album generated national airplay across BBC Radio 2, 6Music, BBC Wales and was playlisted on Amazing Radio and multiple streaming platforms.
Apollo Junction’s songs capture the euphoria of electro-dance music mixed with strong indie guitar hooks, driving bass and passionate vocals. From New Order and U2, to The Cure and even Daft Punk, Apollo Junction use their influences to write insanely memorable, hugely uplifting tunes.
A publishing deal with WipeOut Music has led to Apollo Junction songs featuring on Good Morning TV, MTV, E4 and ITV Calendar News and BBC Look North, as well as in the movie ‘The Big Promise’ directed by award winning Mexican director J R Suarez. The band’s song ‘In Your Arms’ also soundtracks BBC One’s Football Focus show every Saturday and they also recently featured on Match of the Day. The latest single ‘Begin’ is set to soundtrack the new Ubisoft Watchdogs game due for release in 2020.
Playing ‘live’ they perform electro, indie, guitar-inspired songs infused with catchy melodies. 2019 saw Apollo Junction deliver their debut album with a fistful of singles upfront to whet the appetite and also combine a string of UK festival dates, including Camden Rocks Festival, Bingley Weekender, Isle of Wight Festival. Gigging has led to a large following of love and support from fans all over the world. A recent gig in London saw a ‘plane load’ of dedicated fans travel from all across Europe to watch the band perform on stage.
With their anthemic electro-rock and roll they are poised to continue to make a real impact in 2020.
