Check Out the Debut EP from Brother Apollo

Recently we were introduced to a band called Brother Apollo hailing from Flint. They sent over their self-titled debut EP for us to check out. Upon listening to it I was instantly reminiscent of the early 2000s and bands from the era, like Jimmy Eat World and Saves the Day. That's not to say that these guys necessarily sound just like either of the two though.

This four piece band released their first EP in October of this year. It's made up of 6 songs, most of which are on the slower side and, dare I say, sort of emo (haven't used that word in a minute!). This band is definitely worth checking out. The songs are good and the guys are talented. It's as simple as that. Plus, their EP is FREE to download on Bandcamp. Can't turn that down! Definitely an album worth adding to the collection. Although I already liked it the first time I listened to it, I am growing more and more fond of it every time I listen to it.  Soon enough I'll be belting out the chorus of each song at the top of my lungs.

Between Maria Rose & The Swiss Kicks, Tunde and now Brother Apollo, one thing's for sure... Flint has some good music going on! If you want to check Brother Apollo out live, they will be playing The Pike Room this Sunday, December 16th. Doors open early, at 5 p.m. and $12 gets you in.
