Dublin duo Apella have just unveiled the hilarious video for their debut single ‘We Met At A Party’. Few songs scream “summer!” as loudly as ‘We Met At A Party’, which is all infectious Beach Boys melodies one moment, Blink-182 boisterousness the next.
Having hit the radio in July to fantastic support from both national and regional stations, ‘We Met At A Party’ 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.
Clocking in at 2mins 33secs, ‘We Met A Party’ will make you want to hit the ‘repeat’ button as soon as it finishes. That type of smart, sassy writing is repeated throughout its parent album which showcases the duo’s new sound, and gets a live preview in August 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.”
