Single Review: This Could Be The Day ~ APOLLO JUNCTION

Leeds really is a goldmine when it comes to undiscovered musical talent, and with some of the most impressive venues in the country it provides a steadfast stepping stone for up and coming bands to show off their art. Its always fantastic to see bands who are truly proud of their roots; Apollo Junction are one such band. Consisting of Matt, Ben, Sam, Jonny & Jamie, the band have recently been championed by none other than Graham Norton on his Radio 2 show- and with their latest release, its not difficult to see why.

'This Could Be The Day' is a stroke of indie fuelled brilliance. Unwavering, melodious lyrics delivered with confidence and conviction atop gritty, distinctive vocals, its packed full of promise and positivity- which is so refreshing. I knew pretty much straight away, from the punchy intro alone, that I was going to like this track. As a whole, its well shaped, and displays good control over the instruments that they play so well. Anthemic, edgy and raw throughout, I can definitely see why this track is attracting so much attention from some pretty big names in the music industry. Both instrumentally and vocally, it's incredibly impressive and definitely has strong commercial potential.
