A self-proclaimed feel-good indie rock band from Manchester, Digging For Apples will release a new single on 5th March. The new track, ‘Oblivious’, finds the band applying their guitar driven sound to an arrangement with a very retro and almost soulful edge.
The track’s melodic guitar parts bring to mind elements of the ‘Southern Harmony’ era Black Crowes, but once the track hits its stride, there’s no mistaking the band’s origins as the song also draws a few parallels with the late sixties grooves that filled The Charlatans’ self titled album from 1995.
Initially, ‘Oblivious’ is one of those tracks that takes a little adjustment. At the outset, the vocal dominates, but upon hitting that first chorus, the balance between vocal and jangly instrumentation is perfect, resulting in the kind of track that deserves to find a place on many a rock and indie playlist.
