Apolline

Apolline

 Blois, Centre, FRA
BandRockPop

Committed to a strong and creative artistic project, Apolline offers a world of sounds and melodies that reminds of Anglo-Saxon rock. The contagious enthusiasm and the originality of this untypical formation turn every show into an experience.
The lead voice - clear, fluid and familiar with high mids – breaks through the mix / sound barrier with asserted energy and sensitivity.
Enough for the words, the sounds and images will say the rest.
Apolline Blasts !

Biography

The band was formed on February 9 Holy Apolline's day following a jam session where complicity and magic took place. That meeting gave birth to the first songs, which became the basis of a repertoire that now contains over twenty titles, all bound to solid seventies and progressive foundations (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd).

Quickly noticed with a self-produced debut EP 4 tracks, lAccidentelle, Apolline sign in June 2012 with the rock label M & O music, which also owns the group Lys, produced by Steve Hewitt.

Their first album came out in spring 2013 under the title No longer Rain, referring to the esoteric object represented on the cover, which insiders attribute the power to change the atmospheric conditions...

For lack of influencing the weather, Apolline dedicated itself to matter on the musical trend seeking the fusion between indie rock and muscled pop. The chemistry gave birth to a broad and penetrating sound, marked by powerful guitar riffs intertwined with harmonic lines whose finesse and originality springs without emphasis, renewing the pleasure of the auditor over time and listenings.

In eleven tracks alternating rock uppercuts (Fire In The Hole, Bodyback, Idiot...) stadium anthems (Puck, Shook Up, You Sexy Knows...) and dark ballads (LAccidentelle, Vagary Hills, Mermaid in a bathtub...) Apolline shows all the creativity and versatility of a talent served by engaging and high level musicians.

in October 2014 and 2015, Apolline experiences the US through indie festival such as CMJ. It performed in the east Village (Nublu, Parkside, Pianos and Arlene's Grocery) and in Brooklyn (The Trash Bar). Always connecting with professionals abroad, the band recently visited Toronto for the Canadian Music Week 2015.



Lyrics

Puck

Written By: Arthur Navellou

I Know
Everything is a dream for two
I sing along the river and I see you through
All these days living inside my voice
I’m lonely as a rock and I have no choice
I will take my love like we take the sea
Ready to reload my own place-to-be

Everything, you are everything

All these days living inside my voice
I’m lonely as a rock and I have no choice
I will take my love like we take the sea
Ready to reload my own place to be

Let me be on the run
Where is your home when you’re alone?
Got to get to get
I want to get, her I don’t know

Everything, you are everything

On the road I saw many souls to share
They may have been all cool but you weren’t there
I should stop for the night; I should stop for a while
But you face is a light that blinds my eye

Let me be on the run
Where is your home when you’re alone?
Got to get to get
I want to get me, I don’t know

I don’t know anymore where I began this trip
I wish I wasn’t gone and I want to sleep
At the moment I quit my dreams and lights
A girl penetrates the place and shouts
“It was you I was looking for your face everywhere
Together we can sing and fly through the air”

Let me be on the run
Where is your home when you’re alone?
Got to get to get
I want to get you, I don’t know

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know

Everything is a dream for two
I sing along the river and I see you through
All these days living inside my voice
I’m lonely as a rock and I have no choice

I should stop

Shine

Written By: arthur Navellou

There’s a night in my eyes
There’s a shadow to rise
And I can’t survive
If you don’t sublime
If you think that the whole world is blind
At your door, at your gate
I’m a servant of fate
And I hold the light
That you keep inside
It’s a Light that should forever shine
Shine, Oh Shine
To live against the mist
Get out of the list
Make yourself a little Star

In the message you send
From the HI to the End
There’s a Beauty but
I need another shot
I want to see you out in broad daylight
I don’t know anything
But I know that I will
I will see for real
I will see your skill
And I’m not sure that I won’t be killed
Shine, Oh Shine
To live against the mist
Get out of the list
Make yourself a little Star

Nowhere Else
The color
& light
Is stronger
I want to find
And embrace your star
Until I burn inside
You know I fade away
Cause I miss the light
In the Parody of the day
And if you come to me tonight
I’ll show how
To shine

When the buildings are closed
The world is dead I suppose
But I feel your Light
Calling through the night
I hear your grace and see the Birth of Dawn
I don’t know anything
I just know that I will
I will see it for real
I will see in your skill
And I’m not sure that I won’t be killed
Shine, Oh Shine
To live against the mist
Get out of the list
Make yourself a little Star

Nowhere Else
The color
& light
Is stronger
I want to find
And embrace your star
Until I burn inside
You know I fade away
Cause I miss the light
In the Parody of the day
And if you come to me tonight
I’ll show how
To shine

There’s a part of me
Which I don’t know yet
So deep and so dark
I don’t want you to see it
But I feel like you see me clear
I see your light is already here
There’s a part of me
Which I don’t know yet
So deep and so dark
I don’t want you to see it
But I feel like you see me clear
I see your light is here
To blow me away

Fire in the hole

Written By: Arthur Navellou

Your look just cut my heart in two
You hit me first; I got to hurt you too
You hit and run as I always do

Your little heart - castle by the Seine
Will burn and fall if you don’t let me in
Look at the bomb baby! Look at the bomb!

There is no smoke but the chimney is hot
The smell is thicker that you thought
Already in the oven, my fire is on

We are the fire in a hole!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end
Where a kiss is a grenade
Your words are bullets
So lovely and true
To die tonight of you

We are the fire in a hole!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end

It’s now or never you’re my reason
To live forever & challenge the season
Eternal life both on the ring

I’ll be your Soldier and your son
Your dreadful killer and your gun
I’ll burry my axe into your Soul

There is no smoke but her chimney is hot
The smell is thicker that you thought
Already in the oven, my fire is on

We are the fire in a hole!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end
Where a kiss is a grenade
Your words are bullets
So lovely and true
To die tonight of you

We are the fire in a hole!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end
Where a kiss is a grenade
Your words are bullets
So lovely and true
To die tonight of you

We are the fire in a hole!

But now I’m wasting my fuel
On the Pavement of duties
You asked me to come
You asked me to leave
Now I’m wasting my Soul
On the far far away
I’m waiting for you
Now come on and play

Just let me die today, just let me die!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end
Where a kiss is a grenade
Your words are bullets
So lovely and true
To die tonight of you

We are the fire in a hole!

It’s a non-winner fight
A war you never wish to end
Where a kiss is a grenade
Your words are bullets
So lovely and true
To die tonight of you

We are the fire in a hole!

Now I’m wasting my fuel
On the Pavement of duties
You asked me to come
You asked me to leave
Now I’m wasting my Soul
On the Far far away
I’m waiting for you
Now come on and play

Mermaid in a bathtub

Written By: Arthur Navelou

I’ve been away looking for endless fire
Away from your love and everything that was cold
I’ve been in a night walk in the day
Taking me down in a way

My nights were all restless and so lonely in town
Even if I’m sober, I don’t lay on the ground
Away from you now, I could not hear your prayers
That’s taking me down in a way

When I’m always so close to let it go
Let’s try to save it, let’s try to save it

The mirror once told me to look down in the tub
There I saw your body in the watery fog
As you cross the sea, you have your words to say
Taking me down in a way

The bathroom is silent, so real even though it’s not
I know I am dreaming but I am already caught
I begin to fall as I feel your wave
Taking me down in a way

When I’m always so close to let it go
Let’s try to save it, let’s try to save it

I’ve been away by your side

So what if you just take me now
I want to see how many times I could stay
I never saw you take the best out off me
And when you died, why didn’t I sing your prayers?
I’m always yours that is what I never can say
Let’s try again we’re not back in the old days
I want to have … but we’re not back in the days

It’s not over

She may be dream, she may be the light, she may be not wrong…
But no, I can’t belong to you!
To this place I can’t belong! To this place I can’t belong!
What have you done to me? What have you done?

Shook up

Written By: Arthur Navellou

C’est dans les creux que je t’aperçois,
Entre les membres et jusqu’au bout des doigts
A tâtons, j’ouvre une autre voie
L’envers de ton corps, C’est mon endroit

C’est dans l’oubli qu’on se libère
D’un œil avide et d’une autre entrouvert
On trouve du jeu dans les rouages
J’aime quand tu trembles et que tu me saccages

C’est dans l’absence que tu m’embrasses
J’essuie tes battements sur le sismographe
J’apprends par cœur tous tes cratères
J’aime trop creuser quand toi tu prends l’air

C’est dans le vent que tu prends le large
Des failles au fond me font devenir barge
Si nécessaire Tu me laisses faire
Et dans la chair Je persévère.

Shook up! Shook up!
Got to give you a ride
I’ve got a one way ticket to the other side

Allons où poussent les roses bleues
Où l’impassible n’est pas pour deux
Allons-nous rendre au premier rêve
Attendre où coulera la sève
C’est dans les failles perdues
Que le fruit défendu
Rendra son âme au plus offrant de tous
Ça sent le soufre
Au fond du gouffre
Le diable me l’a dit caché sous la mousse

Shook up! Shook up!
Got to give you a ride
I’ve got a one way ticket to the other side

Secoués nous sommes
Et nous resterons
Des fleuves de Rêve en Action

Shook up! Shook up!
Got to give you a ride
I’ve got a one way ticket to the other side
