SoCal indie rockers Island Apollo have established themselves as one of LA’s hottest bands to watch. Combining a classic surf vibe with funky urban grooves, Island Apollo captures the spirit of a West Coast daydream come to life. With members from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, Island Apollo is authentically Southern Californian and isn’t afraid to show it.
After being named Orange County’s “Best Pop Artist” from the OC Music Awards, Island Apollo has had songs appear on FOX Sports, CBS, PBS, TeenNick, VH1, USA Network, and has even had a song appear in a commercial with 2017 Sports Illustrated cover model Kate Upton. With the release of their new single “Hold it Down”, Island Apollo demonstrates how the band has truly created a unique sound all their own.
Produced by Ric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius), ‘Hold It Down’ is an infectious track that features driving drums, layered vocals, upbeat guitar and synth bass riffs. Somewhere between indie, pop and rock, ‘Hold It Down’ jams the best of each genre into in anthemic rhythm you can’t help but groove with. It’s the type of track that floors you with a sucker punch and then offers you a hand up. For rock fans craving something more, Island Apollo will hold you down.
