Rarely has heartbreak sounded so good! A swoonsome love song that’s impossible to resist”  - Stuart Clark, Hot PressLast summer Apella burst onto the scene with their debut single ‘We Met At A Party’ to huge support from both national and regional radio 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 arrived fully formed and ready to win musical hearts and minds. Both ‘We Met A Party’ and the bands current single ‘Graceful Dancer’ 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. Their first headline show at Whelan’s in October sold out two weeks in advance and 2017 is set to be a busy year for the pair with a host of dates in both Ireland and abroad already in the calendar. Judging by the 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 now.
