Apollo SteamTrain release new single 'Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)'

Tauranga rock band Apollo SteamTrain have just released their brand new single 'Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)'.

'Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)' is the second offering from a collaboration with producer Greg Haver. Recorded at Roundhead Studios UK based Engineer Clint Murphy, the track is a combination of catchy guitar hook and vocal melodies, layered over power house drums.

Written by front man, Brendan McCarthy, the track is based on the theme of becoming addicted to the modern world, which loosely extends to the idea that the reflection of ourselves is only what we want to see and not who we really are.

Apollo SteamTrain was formed in 2016 by McCarthy, with drummer Les Robinson and Bass Player Ian Clark providing a powerful rhythmic edge. The band plays solid guitar driven melodic rock delivered over a punching rhythm section, dressed with relentlessly catchy vocal melodies.

The release of 'Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)' will be followed by shows in Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga.

The track is available on Spotify, iTunes and all good digital outlets.
