Bio

▲ P O L L O ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Began mid 2009 when two kids decided to constructively channel their boredom in the form of melodic sound. After a short period of time another two gentlemen were thrown in the mix, unearthing a distinct sound from which Apollo were born. Remaining hidden for the best part of their first year as a band, the Apollo team steadily brewed a unique mix of dance, post-punk & pop, as well as shooting the odd hoop or two. 2010 saw Apollo finally break out onto the local scene, turning a few heads with some demo tracks and a high energy live show. Now with some experience under their belt and some ambition in their heads Apollo have a long and winding path in front of them, one they are eager to begin. In our time together we have played along side : - Midnight Juggernaut Djs - Bag Raiders - Sampology - Gold Fields - Strange Talk - The JSB's - Bluejuice - The Holidays - Howl - Groovin' the Moo 2010 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ For bookings contact us on apollomusic@live.com.au ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Rough and ready stuff - with perhaps a bit more band practice time needing to be booked - but this has got a good heart to it. Hopefully you guys aren't aiming for a sponsorship deal though with this song...
