Long Lost Apollo are a post-rock band based in Manila, PH. Formed in 2019, the instrumental quartet’s music is characterized by their unique style, which intersects post-rock and ambient atmosphere. Experimentally driven and influenced by movie scenes, video games, and cinematic film scores, as well as the distinct style of guitar tapping popularized by math rock bands. Favoring emotion over a technicality, Long Lost Apollo aim to introduce a more listener-friendly experience for new listeners and music enthusiasts alike who have discovered a newfound appreciation for post-rock.
Long Lost Apollo are set to release their debut EP, First Flight—which tells the story of the struggles and victories of the thriving human spirit dealing with the existence of life. Focused on the light of hope and faith, the four-track EP captures human endurance, optimism, and perseverance to become better versions of themselves.
First Flight will be available April 1, 2020. It was independently recorded, mixed, and mastered at the home studio of guitarist Marvin Chua.
