The Weird Apples Release Debut Single – “Lover From Another”

The Weird Apples came together when former members of the band Olsen Court returned home from college. They played shows all throughout the Hudson Valley during the summer, and found just enough time to record a single before they all went back to college. Lover From Another was recorded in Sam Gleason’s bedroom studio, a location which helped contribute to the song’s garage rock sound. It’s now available for free download right here!
