The first time I read about The History of Apple Pie in a music blog, I had to make sure I had the right website on and have not accidentally clicked on a Pinterest site. With a name like that, you can easily surmise that The History of Apple Pie is a twee band. And of course, you are right.
The History of Apple Pie are five London kids, who, like a lot of bands their age, fancy the fuzzy lo-fi guitar driven rock of the early 90s – think Dinosaur Jr. As such, they wouldn’t seem out of place twin-billing a gig with fellow London 90s-lover Yuck. The biggest difference is that The History of Apple Pie has singer Stephanie Min who can inject the right amount of vocal sweetness and yes, twee-ness, into the songs that they end up giving out a cheery contrast through the jangle and murk of the guitars. If you’re yearning for some 90s-based sun-drenched fuzzy rock, check out their debut record Out Of View.
Check out the stream for standout single See You and the throwback-style video for Mallory embedded below.
