KID APOLLO EPK
Kid Apollo is the alias of Rory Mullan, the 26 year old songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Derry, Ireland. Working as a one-man-band of sorts, Kid Apollo writes, records and produces all his music himself and puts it out into the world when he just can’t keep sitting on it anymore (or when he’s sick of listening to it).
While he’s been compared to a multitude of different artists, his main influences include the likes of Damon Albarn, The Strokes, St. Vincent, David Bowie and Arcade Fire.
Kid Apollo has been consistently praised for his ability to draw from countless influences and yet sound completely like himself, while always putting melody and songwriting structure at the forefront of his music.
Latest single ‘Long Time Coming’ is the definitive example of this – the hooky synth melody paired with the driving indie-rock rhythm eventually lead the song into a soaring, climactic coda before floating back down to earth in a structure that is typical of the genre-twisting, colourful world in which Kid Apollo’s music inhabits.
