TAURANGA ROCK BAND APOLLO STEAMTRAIN (BRENDAN MCCARTHY) ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR NEW SINGLE “SUPERSTITION (LOOKING IN THE MIRROR)”
“Superstition (looking in the mirror)”is the second offering from a collaboration with international producer Greg Haver. Recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland and mixed by TUI Award winning UK based Engineer Clint Murphy, the track is a combination of catchy guitar hook and vocal melodies, layered over power house drums that take the listener on a no nonsense sonic journey.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Apollo SteamTrain on their new recordings and helping them forge a vision for Brendan’s songs. Their determination to keep the band’s music moving forward is inspiring” – Greg Haver
Written by front man, Brendan McCarthy, the track is based on the theme of becoming addicted to the modern world. Speaking in the 2nd person narrative, the lyrics make statements that “You’re so addicted” and “you have lost your sense of understanding”, but then resolve with the narrator admitting that “You’re not alone” and “I’m here with you”, meaning everyone is in this crazy world together. The theme is loosely extended to the idea that the reflection of ourselves is only what we want to see and not what we really are.
Apollo SteamTrain was formed in 2016 by singer songwriter Brendan McCarthy, with drummer Les Robinsonand Bass Player Ian Clark providing a powerful rhythmic edge. The band plays solid guitar driven melodic rock delivered over a punching rhythm section, dressed with relentlessly catchy vocal melodies.
The band have a publishing deal with Songbrokerand have had success with one of their catchy pop rock tracks, “The Electric Sun” appearing in NZ Television show, Shortland Street.
The release of “Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)”will be followed by shows in Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga.
