Hailing from Ballarat are APES, who sadly do not partake in dressing up in monkey costumes. They have just dropped a new track on Soundcloud called ‘Strange Tastes’; sexy and sleek melodies with vocals reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, and bass reminiscent of the Red Hot Chilli Pepper.

Having only released a five track EP Helluva, they have recently toured the UK following some serious gigs and festival slots, grabbing the right attention as Big Day Out Unearthed winners in 2013.

APES have spent time solidifying a fan base in Ballarat and the rest of Australia. Classifying themselves as Garage Rock/Heavy Pop, they have much more Goin’ on.
