By Amanda Penlington Noisy guitars and sweet vocals are a winning combination and The History of Apple Pie are one of our favourite exponents of this kind of music. The band have been building up a reputation with their two lovely singles ‘ You’re So Cool ’ and ‘ Mallory ’ and a hectic live schedule. GoldFlakePaint caught up with them on the Bristol night of their UK tour with The Drums to talk about life as a new band, their songwriting process, and their appreciation of songs about [...]

The History of Apple Pie From: London, United Kingdom Why would a band saddle themselves with a name like The History of Apple Pie? The well of decent band names must be running dry and the bottom of the barrel scraped so hard it's disappeared. It sounds like a cookery book tie in with the Great Briish Bake Off and it's not even representative of their sound. If they were peddling sub Sarah twee indie it'd still [...]
Tweet What the fuck, Franky B Rockafeller, if that is indeed my real name!? I've only gone and Introduced The History Of Apple Pie in one of those months that happen every year but in this case it happened in 2010 when it wasn't quite as hot as it was the month before and not as cold as the month following it . So I introduce them and then do you guys a disservice by not following up with them as [...]
With its caveman rhythms and melodic lady-lo-fi sound, U.K. act The History of Apple Pie fits neatly next to the U.S.-bred Seapony or Tennis - it's just better. "You're So Cool" adds mesmerizing harmonies and a Strokes-worthy lead guitar sound that pierces the proto-shoegaze production, simple touches that take the song from being another blog "jam" to thoroughly effective indie rock. We may not be so cool, but there's no doubt about the band. You're So Cool by The History Of Apple Pie
Opal Fruits and Mars Bars that cost 30p. Top of the Pops. Drinking alcopops in the park. Caravan holidays. BMXs. My first kiss at a school disco. Cleaning my dad's car. Pocket money. Late homework. Fake ID. Endless summer holidays. Ending summer holidays. The History of Apple Pie 's retro dreampop makes me think of all of those things, and each with fuzzy smile. Who'd have thought a band from Whitechapel could do that? [There is a video that cannot be displayed in this feed. Visit the blog entry to see the video.] The History [...]
Its Monday once again which means its time for a trawl through this week's harvest of singles in search of something just off the beaten track worth a listen. The History Of Apple Pie You're So Cool When listening through 'You're So Cool' you find yourself immediately transported back to the memory of some sleepy beach barbecue smouldering under a rosey orange sun burnt to the horizon line. You passed out listening to an old Idlewild CD and Belinda Butcher singing 'Drive It All [...]
Some amazing videos went live this week. You've got the likes of Radiohead hitting the basement for a live session, Clams Casino enlisting German legend Kinski, The History of Apple Pie frolicking on a beach, Grass House sat on a sofa and Yacht making their claim for video of the year. What's your favourite? Remember, we have a load more videos in our TV area ( here ).
We’re honestly not sure if this could have been timed better. Up above is the video for The History of Apple Pie ’s debut single, ‘You’re So Cool’ and it matches the song, a celebratory indie-pop gem that captures the essence of summer, perfectly. The song itself is out next week and proves that recent free download ‘Tug’ was no flash in the pan. You can hear the progression that’s already been made. ‘You’re So Cool’ has confirmed that The History of Apple Pie are set to be one of 2011’s most exciting bands.
You can say what you want about lo-fi twee bands but they will always have a huge place in our hearts at Addict
Here's a new video from tweecore five piece The History of Apple Pie . 'You're So Cool' is released via Roundtable and the video involves much beach-related shenanigans and a walking ice-cream cone. We've personally picked the London-based band to play on The Line of Best Fit stage at SWN Festival in Cardiff this October. Watch the clip below then check out free track 'Tug' , which we offered as a download way back in, erm, May.
