The History Of Apple Pie are fresh off tours with The Drums and Male Bonding, THOAP look to keep the 90s guitar band era alive with the aid of woozy girl vocals. Their track TUG a melange of melody and noise as pioneered by Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine.
“Creating a noise to trump the likes of Vivian Girls and Best Coast as a British mutation of their own game” NME
London based and formed just over eighteen months ago, The History Of Apple Pie line up is centered around the songwriting partnership of Stephanie Min (Vocals) and Jerome Watson (Guitar) together with Kelly Owens (Bass), James Thomas (Drums) and Aslam Ghauri (Guitar). A truly great and exciting live band, they quickly built up an ever growing fanbase of critics, punters and fellow musicians alike.
They’ve already played over seventy shows both here and in Europe including numerous festival spots, a sold-out show for HMV’s Next Big Thing, The Roundhouse Rising, main support for both The Drums and Male Bonding and being hand-picked by Graham Coxon to support him at his recent London show. As well as the aforementioned three sold out singles, they also recently released a split 12” with the similarly-inclined talents of Gross Magic, Novella and Echo Lake.
‘Out Of View’, recorded in London over the last few months, was self produced by guitarist Jerome Watson, mixed by Charles ‘Chicky’ Reeves and engineered by Joshua Third of The Horrors. Joshua also adds his unique guitar sound to the albums closer ‘Before You Reach The End’. Released on vinyl, CD and available to download, the new album features ten tracks including their critically acclaimed and sold out singles ‘Do It Wrong’, ‘Mallory’ and last years debut ‘You’re So Cool’.
‘Out Of View’ sees the band take expansive and very exciting leaps with the new recordings. The infectious fuzzy pop sound of those early singles has been crafted and developed and they have taken the guitar aesthetic of their heroes - Sonic Youth, Radiohead and Blur - into new and glorious terrorties. Expect more tales of medicated teenage heartache and the psychedelic rain of slacker-genius guitar chops from Jerome’s home made pedal board, but the band have really come of age and the result is a truly memorable and exhilarating guitar pop album.
