Today’s song is “Tiny Love” by Apache Rose.
Hailing from Moscow, Russia Apache Rose is the brainchild of writer and producer Ilya Novokhatskiy. Backing him is a rotating cast of supporting musicians.
Novokhatskhiy cites influences from the 90’s Seattle music scene. It was this music he fell in love with American and Rock music when he was living in the US as a child.
So it’s no wonder the track is filled with melodies similar to that of American alternative rock and grunge. Illya melds these styles to create a rocking sound that is all their own.
The band’s name is even said to be inspired by the Red Hot Chili Peppers song “Apache Rose Peacock” according to Gig Radar.
Apache Rose is a band part of a new underground rock scene in the country: fresh, energetic and (most importantly) English-speaking on a very fluent level.
But unlike local peers, they aim primarily towards English speaking countries. This has proved beneficial and they have been successful with standing out from the crowd being picked up by Spotify playlists and gaining a growing following in the US, through Facebook and Soundcloud.
The track “Tiny Single” is an aggressive (in a good way), feel-good song about failure and perseverance. The song is a high-energy track with angry verses, monumental choruses, a tender bridge, and a blazing guitar solo.
Novokhatskhiy describes the song as “an aggressive (in a good way), feel-good song about failure and perseverance…It’s a song about being angry and frustrated that you and your efforts are not enough, but you still hang in there and bet everything on your performance.”
“Tiny Love” packs a punch within even the first seconds of its mesmerizing guitar and drum licks. This song has an alluring and inviting melody that can’t be surpassed.
If you’re a fan of 90’s alternative and grunge or artists Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, Kaiser Chiefs, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Cage the Elephant, Apache Rose is surely a band that is will appeal to you.
