Recently described as “The Mamas & The Papas meets Mumford &
Sons”, apples... i’m home are a pop/folk four piece based in West
London. They began life in 2007 as a song-writing duo in the Scottish
town of Ayr. Having since re-located to Glasgow and Gloucestershire,
they can now be found writing and performing their original brand of
catchy, melody-driven songs across the London folk scene.
Glasgow Arts Council funded their first single recording, at the
prestigious Park Lane studios (Paolo Nutini, The Proclaimers) and,
following a number of further demos, the band recorded their debut EP,
‘Last Week’, in 2012. To support the release, they set off on their
first UK tour, playing gigs from the south of England to the north coast
of Scotland in August that year.
Their latest EP, 'From The
Road', was released to coincide with the band's second appearance at the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where the CD's first print run sold out
within four days.
Solid structures and layered harmonies remain
features of their music and, having received positive reactions since
expanding to a four-piece, the band are now focusing on cementing their
place in the capital's thriving folk scene.
