apples & eve
a new EP of stunning gypsy folk from the brighton outfit.
Apples & Eve originally formed in 2010 as a duo with Eve Rose (Lead vocals, Guitar and Accordion) & Francine Perry (Drums). They both studied at the same college and discovered each other’s passion in creating and performing the same genre of music. It wasn’t long before Apples & Eve started to create a buzz in their hometown Brighton and were then joined by; bassist Graeme Ross (Laura Marling, Pe ggy Sue, James Morrison) and fiddle player Jonas Aaron (Not Now Bernard). Apples & Eve are now a formidable outfit who have gained a strong reputation for their live performances as well as being a talented, committed, and hardworking band. “Powerful lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies” Apples & Eve’s variation on Alternative/Folk has been influenced by artists such as; Devendra Banhart, Coco Rosie, Fink, Grizzly Bear, tUnE-YaRdS, Laura Veirs, Beirut, The Moulettes, Angus & Julia Stone, Billie Holiday, Lana Del Rey, Fredo Viola, Laura Marling, Mariee Sioux, Nick Drake, Grimes and Paul Simon which has helped to create their distinctive and endearing sound. As much as music takes a lead role in Apples & Eve, the band are also extremely creative and enjoy designing and creating original pieces of art work for the band. The ‘Dionysus’ EP for example has been individually hand printed using a wood cut on recycled wallets to create an original and natural feel. This is something that is very much at the heart of Apples & Eve’s philosophy with regard to making music and their own video presentation.
