Dublin duo Apella have just announced the release of their second single, “Graceful Dancer” on Friday 4 November. The band are also set to play Whelan’s (Upstairs) on Saturday 22 October. Tickets for the show priced €10 including booking fee are on sale now from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and www.Ticketmaster.ie
Hitting the radio in July with their debut single ‘We Met At A Party’ to huge support from both national and regional stations, the track is a serious declaration of intent from singer/multi-instrumentalist Dara Quilty and drummer Ronan Nolan; who’ve previously shared a stage with the A-List likes of Jimmy Eat World, Foo Fighters, Twenty One Pilots, Paramore, 30 Seconds To Mars, Scouting For Girls and Bon Jovi.
It’s no wonder then that Apella arrive fully formed and ready to win musical hearts and minds. Both “Graceful Dancer” and ‘We Met A Party’ will make you want to hit the ‘repeat’ button as soon as they finish. That type of smart, sassy writing is repeated throughout their parent album which showcases the duo’s new sound, and gets a live preview in October when Apella head out on tour.
Judging by the two low-key warm-ups they’ve already played, it’s going to be a blast! “
We supported Twenty One Pilots earlier this year in Dublin and Belfast. Not knowing who we were I thought everybody would head to the bar but, no, they were dancing and punching the air the second we hit the stage. We can’t wait for everybody to see our live show.”
‘Graceful Dancer’ is available for download on Friday 4 November.
