20-year-old songwriter Omar Apollo’s highly-anticipated debut EP is just around the corner. After dropping the timeless video for his single “Unbothered” last week, Apollo follows up with an intimate new cut titled “Erase”.
From the moment the first guitar strum drifts into a listener’s ear, the Indiana-raised artist makes his signature sound known to those who may be unfamiliar. And for listeners who are already fans of Apollo, “Erase” offers up more of the hazy, timeless vibes that have gotten many hooked to his music over the past year. He squeezes as many memorable moments as he can into these 4-minutes, instantly grabbing a listener’s attention with the initial beat drop, leaving them dazed as he slides into his falsetto before delivering a hook that begs to be sung along with (and cried to). Once again, Apollo’s songwriting thrives in moments of heartbreak, as he writes about the impossibility of trying to move on from being in love with someone. It’s this level of realness and vulnerability that’s gotten Apollo’s growing fanbase to truly admire his music as the excitement for his project (due this month) continues to build.
