It may not be a classic amalgamation of inspirations but Russian indie-rock band, Apache Rose combine sounds from the British Invasion of the Sixties and the Alternative guitar bands of the Nineties in their new single Blind Spot and we’re loving it!
Apache Rose are the Russian musical offensive we can all be joyful about! Built around the Muscovite engine of Ilya Novokhatskiy, Apache Rose is far from Russian interference, it is the clarion call for the return of ultra-catchy melodic rock, with the earworms of The Beatles and the raw swagger of The Strokes. Apache Rose’s latest single is Blind Spot, a ‘tribute’ to reckless taxi drivers worldwide and with an overarching theme of being careful not to put yourself in situations you can’t control.
And if you aren’t already super intrigued by the band, despite being based in Moscow, they have attracted a worldwide audience already with over 10,000 Facebook followers and over a quarter of a million YouTube views of their last single.
Apache Rose have been recording in a studio in the basement of the historic Central Telegraph building, 100 metres from The Kremlin, surely the most appropriate base for a Russian guitar attack of epic proportions?!
Their new single Blind Spot precedes an EP planned for Summer 2020 – in the meantime give the guys a follow below.
