New album “A Little Sense” released: Friday, May 29th
Amazing Apples have landed in 2015 with some striking singles – ‘Slipping By’ and their most recent single, ‘Lullaby’ – and now the Galway outfit are set to release their debut album A Little Sense on Friday May 29, followed by the launch in Whelans in Dublin on Saturday May 30 and a hometown album launch at An Róisín Dubh on Sunday May 31.
A Little Sense was recorded in Grouse Lodge with renowned Irish music producer, Joe Chester (The Coronas, Ryan Sheridan). The album was mastered in Sterling Sound (USA) by Greg Calbi (The National, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon)
A Little Sense is an album brimming with inventive, thought-provoking music. From the opening moments, as beautiful guitar swells couple with pounding drums (‘On Your Own’), the scene is set. The sweet and delicate single ‘Lullaby’, follows, pulling us in and setting us up for the incredible ‘Jack and Jill’; a stunning and nostalgic love song that demonstrates Amazing Apples’ ability to skillfully walk the line between traditional Irish folk music and indie rock.
The five piece multi-instrumentalist Amazing Apples have established themselves as one of the hardest working acts on the Irish live music circuit, playing with Damien Dempsey, Ryan Sheridan, Mundy, Walking on Cars and Little Green Cars over the last 12 months.
A Little Sense will be released on Friday, May 29.
