Irish Artist Kid Apollo Returns With Shimmering Indie Track ‘Wrong Foot Forward’

Wrong Foot Forward (Single)

Kid Apollo

The exciting project of Rory Mullan, Kid Apollo makes memorable electropop-tinged indie music. His latest track ‘Wrong Foot Forward’ follows on from the release of his glorious 5-track EP ‘Aquarius’.

‘Wrong Foot Forward’ is a song born out of frustration and reluctant acceptance of not being where you want to be at in life. The artist employs a new sense of pulsing rhythms and urgency to his music, pairing them alongside lyrics that are both sincere and melancholic but also leaving room for a tiny bit of optimism; “I didn’t have fun when I was the age to have done/I’m late to the party but I think I still have time”.

Kid Apollo’s signature melancholic lyrics and vocal intertwine with ethereal guitar. At the 01.17 mark, the track erupts into an infectious indie rock groove. The kooky addition of piano and the expert use of tension and release within the song’s structure and arrangement clearly prove Kid Apollo is in his element with music-making. So watch this space.
