Popshop UK introduces Southend’s Apachelux with upcoming release
It all started at the Village Green Festival in Southend-On-Sea in 2014 when Ross met singer Louisa who was being schmoozed by a friend of Jay’s called Ross. Jays says, “Louisa said she was a singer, to which Ross shouted, ‘Jay, you need a singer don’t you? This girl can sing, you two should talk.’”
Jay liked the word lux and attached it to Apache, which he thinks was inspired by seeing the film Empire of the Sun.
Apachelux are inspired by great tunes from across the musical spectrum, as Jay says, “from Nirvana to Girls Aloud, Maya Jane Coles to Smashing Pumpkins, The Police to Madonna, Royal Blood to Chemical Brothers. Radio 1 to Classic FM. 1940’s Jazz to Barber Shop.”
Their debut single This Time was played on 30 radio stations around the globe and their remixes received widespread support by DJs in clubs and on radio in places from Columbia, New York, Ibiza, Singapore to the Ukraine.
Apachelux’s latest single Only When You’re Lonely, mixed and mastered by John Webber at Air Studio, is out now on
The single Only When You’re Lonely includes a house remix from London boys K&K, and a Spaced Out remix from Lost N Spaced, the current handle of USA based character producer Sam Marcos based. Only When You’re Lonely with 3 tracks is available on digital music retail.
