Since they first raised the roof for us at The Scala back in 2009, The Apples have been a firm Wah Wah favourite and never disappoint. Club and festival regulars in Europe and their native Israel (includes appearances at WOMAD/ Camp Bestival and Secret Garden Festivals in the UK), The Apples never fail to deliver their signature unrivalled explosive live experience.
Over the past eight years the nine-strong instrumental group has been folding cuts and scratches from every imaginable source into big band blares and Middle Eastern elements on top of a raw funk base, baking a thick multi-layered sonic treat.
Keeping true to their origins as a spontaneous composition ensemble, they kick ideas up and down the stage in a torrent of decks, horns, double bass, drums and electronic effects. No digital samplers, no guitars or keyboards and no safety net as the arrangements are reinvented on the spot and the roles of solo and backing instruments change at the blink of an eye to any of the nine members.
The powerful sound has also reverberated on dance floors, televisions, radios and films worldwide. Courtesy of the 7” singles- 'Attention!' and the aforementioned 'Killing' and 'Buzzin’ About' & 'Attention!' LPs.
The success of these releases also fuels frequent sold out European visits, at which the audience dance, laugh, sweat (almost) as much as the band does from the first adrenalized downbeat to the last unison hit.
Expect the unexpected as the boys march forward.
Digging deeper into their countless influences and resurfacing with genre-melting, ear-turning, booty- shaking groove music.
Look out for their incredible new album, 'Fly On It', out now on Audio Montage.
