2018 looks to be ‘the year’ for Sydney’s only ‘Psych-rock’ quartet, Apache. After playing sets at some of Sydney’s top venues in 2017- The Lansdowne Hotel, The Marlborough Hotel and LazyBones Lounge- Apache’s calendar continues to replenish itself with gigs in 2018.

Their latest single, Sugar Plum Struttin filmed and recorded live in studio, perfectly showcases the band’s musical swagger. The Newtown based quartet are very determined to make their mark even more on Sydney’s ever growing live music scene.  A fantastic ‘cool and moody sound’ that ‘Hep-Cats’ would dig, as much as groove rockers. These guys would be as at home in the swank Bars of Mayfair (London) and SOHO (New York) as they are in Sydney’s music epicentre; Newtown.
