Bandwidth: Getting soulful with Drop Apollo

In the latest installment of Bandwidth, we introduce you to Drop Apollo, a 5-piece indie rock band that been playing show around the Bay Area for little more than a year.

The band’s sound can be best described as a mixture of soul, R&B and modern rock.

Started by lead singer Matt Widdoes, Drop Apollo has gone from five strangers recruited through Craigslist to a opening Scottish songstree, Emeli Sandé. Their songs have also made their way into the rotation of Hollister clothing stores across the globe. “It’s really crazy to to hear your music playing and see people shopping right next to you and you’re thinking, ‘I wrote this in a coffee shop a mile away,” say Widdoes.

If you want to catch the group live, they’ll be playing at The Rellik Tavern on March 31.
