'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.
9/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 February 2018
'Velocity of Sound' has always been my favourite Apples In Stereo record despite it coming a bit later in their career, a little way after their Elephant 6 golden period. It's a short, sharp shock of an album featuring insanely catchy three minute pop songs which will appeal to anyone who carried a torch for the power pop likes of the Ramones, the Buzzcocks, Shoes and the Mice. At times it sounds a little like a miniature Pixies especially on 'Rainfall' with it's sinewy guitars and energetic rhythms.
It's brilliant bubblegum pop all the way through - every song has the kind of hooks that will put a smile on your face on even the most miserable of days. If inexplicably there's a track you don't like then there'll be another along in a minute. So let's just enjoy it eh?
