Meet Sydney indie rock n roll band Apollo Hooks. Guitarist Jules Wucherer got kicked off a Grinspoon support tour, singer Dylan's Dad wrote the Moving Pictures hit 'What About Me', and Theo is Australia's tallest drummer. But that's only just scratched the surface of this mesmerisingly powerful quartet, who are currently making waves on the Australian music scene.
And what a band it is. Every now and then, somewhere in the world, comes along a voice that can knock down walls. An effortless mix of power, control and timbre that blasts its way from the speakers straight into that glorious part of your soul where music lives. Frontman Dylan Mitchell, is such a voice. The rhythm section of drummer Theo Henry and bassist Jordan Glass posses the coveted ability to stick to each other like superglue, even during the band's most complex songs; opening the space for guitarist Jules Wucherer to add the colour and velocity to each song with a masterful display of both musicianship and subtlety.
Having recently performed at the iconic Sydney Opera House, and with their totally independent debut album 'Whatever You Do, Don't' cracking the Australian iTunes Top 100 Album chart on release, it's no doubt that these lads are a band to watch. Their debut single, Glass Of Gold, peaked at #9 on the Triple-J Unearthed Charts, and followup single, Chasing The Middle, at #16.
Apollo Hooks have taken no shortcuts in ensuring their debut 'Whatever You Do Don’t' is a great record, and have already proven their ambition has not been unrewarded. With a bright future of national and international touring on the horizon, and with their upcoming EP release in Australian Spring 2017, featuring the anthemic single 'Honey, It's You.', the best of Apollo Hooks is still to come.
