Society of Sound: The Apples

Israeli instrumental post-funk juggernaut The Apples have been delivering genre melting, infectious grooves for over a decade and this month their new album is the March release on Society of Sound.

Comprised of decks, horns, double bass, drums and tape effects, The Apples’ big band vibe mixes with their Middle Eastern influences to create a signature sound.

This new album, Dragonz, has seen the band challenge their usual working methods to create a record containing disparate influences, guests and production methods yet the resulting album remains undeniably The Apples and is possibly their most focused LP to date.

To date The Apples have released five full length albums and have been featured on Bowers & Wilkins live stage at WOMAD UK.
