Yeovil would hardly be the first place that sprung to mind when thinking of young, post-hardcore bands. But college mates Apherium are on the charge to change that, and the next step on the road is new EP “Embrace The Fall That Brought Us Here“.
The best thing about this EP is that there are no gimmicks. It’s straight up, anthemic rock influenced by the likes of Biffy Clyro and InMe, and those influences shine through in this material. Recorded alongside legendary producer John Mitchell, (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Enter Shikari) this release has the potential to open eyes and thrust Apherium from the underground.
Lead single ‘Embrace‘ is a punchy track that soars into an epic bridge, before crashing back to it’s former self to close. ‘Embrace‘ has been plenty of love by Kerrang! DJ Alex Baker’s show as well as airtime on Scuzz TV. Vocalist Larry Turner has an essence of Fightstar-era Charlie Simpson about him, as he broods over his guitar and his band mates create a wall of noise behind him.
A short offering at just three tracks, this EP is hopefully a sign of things to come from the band, who’s sound wouldn’t seem out of place in much bigger venues than the ones they’re currently playing. This band are certainly one to keep your eye on, so remember the name: Apherium.
