Apella return with their brand new single ‘POINT OF VIEW’, which is out today. Alongside this they are also thrilled to announce the their debut album, ‘1963’ which is set for release on January 29th, 2021.
Formed in Dublin in 2016, Apella burst onto the scene with their radio hit, ‘We Met At A Party’, and furthered their success with ‘Graceful Dancer’, ‘Logic’, and ‘City Limits’.
After touring all over Ireland, opening for Twenty One Pilots, appearing at all major Irish music festivals including Electric Picnic, Indiependence, Castlepalooza and Sea Sessions – accompanied by UK tours with Keywest and Don Broco, frontman and singer Dara Quilty moved to New York City to work further on his music career. This period saw him playing in venues like Rockwood Music Hall, Bitter End, Pete’s Candy Store and many more in New York City. The Pandemic brought the music industry to a tragic halt with Dara Quilty completing his work on the album at Empire Underground Studios in Brooklyn, NY.
Speaking about the album Dara said:
“I had a goal to produce & record an entire album before I was 30 and I did it. I waited for too long to release this but now is the time. This is my life’s work, this is my twenties. I paid for the entire production of the record myself and I am truly excited to put it out into the world!”
