Last Apollo was launched by the dublin artist Lucy Rice in January 2021 and as was concisely put by writer Emer Tyrell of University Times “ it is clear that the only way for Last Apollo is up”
Last Apollo’s listeners are directed mainly from Instagram where she excels in engagement with her followers. She openly conveys the struggles and experiences on which her music is based.
“I value connecting with my listeners on a personal, transparent and candid level and so particularly on my Instagram page I am entirely open about my struggles, triumphs and any emotions/experiences that I feel may comfort, encourage and validate other people’s experiences. The majority of my listeners are people who do not know me personally yet are able to connect emotionally to Last Apollo. I receive texts weekly from strangers thanking me for being an outworldly kind, accepting and honest person whose music has helped them cope with their own difficulties and appreciate their own potential and triumphs.
“Last Apollo is very conscious of the indie, alt scene in which she is aiming to become a staple of, particularly in her home country, Ireland. She has just released her second single Reservoir ahead of her upcoming album Ordinary Matter. Originally written in a competition with her boyfriend to see who could write a better song in 30 minutes, this warm and fuzzy song is sure to make anybody smile as they listen over and over to the rose tinted world created by the emerging artist.
