Single Premiere: Apollo Suns - A Song For Sterling
Winnipeg’s Apollo Suns burst onto the Canadian music scene in 2017 with the release of their incredible debut Each Day A Different Sun. This nine piece, instrumental band are a jazz-rock hybrid who incorporate elements of psych and funk into their songs. Their debut immediately caught our attention and was ranked at #4 on our list of the Best EPs Of 2017. The band has quickly become known as a “must-see” live act as all nine members hop in the van when it’s time to hit the road. With many tours under their belt, this young band has built an impeccable resume that includes “Instrumental Artist of the Year” at the 2018 Western Canadian Music Awards.
(On one of those tours, they stopped by the Cups N Cakes Studio for a chat on “Inside The Artists Studio”. You can listen to that interview here.)
Today we a pleased to premiere the single, “A Song for Sterling”, from their forthcoming release, Dawn Offerings, which will arrive independently on April 26th. The four song EP was recorded live off the floor at Paintbox Studios in Winnipeg with the hope of capturing the energy that Apollo Suns have become known for on stage. It was produced by Keith Price and Apollo Suns and features a little nod back to their previous release by using the same melody as “A Lesson in Sharing”( the closing track from Each Day A Different Sun) on the opening track entitled “A Lesson Learned”.
After back to back nights on April 26th and 27th to celebrate the albums release in Winnipeg, the band will be doing an extensive Western Canadian tour. Don’t miss Apollo Suns as they bring their incredible live show to a city/town near you!
