Apella Return with Brand New Single

Apella return with their brand new single ‘Point Of View’, which has just been released today, Friday December 11th, 2020. Alongside this they are also thrilled to announce the release of their debut album ‘1963’ which is set for release on January 29th, 2021.

Formed in Dublin in 2016, Apella burst onto the scene with their radio hit ‘We Met At A Party’ and furthered their success with ‘Graceful Dancer’, ‘Logic’ and ‘City Limits’.

After touring all over the country – opening for Twenty One Pilots, appearing at all major Irish music festivals including Electric Picnic, Indiependence, Castlepalooza and Sea Sessions – accompanied by UK tours with Keywest and Don Broco, frontman and singer Dara Quilty moved to New York City to work further on his music career. This period saw him playing in venues like Rockwood Music Hall, Bitter End, Pete’s Candy Store and many more in New York City. The Pandemic brought the music industry to a tragic halt with Dara Quilty completing his work on the album at Empire Underground Studios in Brooklyn, NY. 

Speaking about  the album Dara Quilty said: “I had a goal to produce & record an entire album before I was 30 and I did it. I waited for too long to release this but now is the time. This is my life’s work, this is my twenties. I paid for the entire production of the record myself and I am truly excited to put it out into the world!

‘Point Of View’ the brand new single from Apella is out now across all digital platforms. Apella’s debut album ‘1963’ is out on January 29th, 2021.
