Band & Musician News - Apollo SteamTrain Announce Studio Album 'Generation Overload'

Apollo SteamTrain Announce Studio Album 'Generation Overload'

08 October 2021 - 0 Comments

Tauranga musical artist Brendan McCarthy aka Apollo SteamTrain has announced his debut album Generation Overload will be released on Friday 22nd October, 2021.

The album is the culmination of a considerable 6-year project that has involved contributions from multiple local musicians and production from New Zealand and England, and reflects a lifetime musical and personal journey for Brendan with some of the collection of tracks being written as far back as 1995.

The project itself started out in 2014 as a solo activity but diversified into a band with Apollo SteamTrain playing live for a number of years. After suffering the usual pressures of keeping a group of musicians together, the band split in 2019. Brendan decided to return the project to its roots and continue as a solo artist.

Recording took place over several years at three different studios beginning with initial sessions at The Colourfield Studio in Tauranga with producer Tim Julian, before moving on to Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios in Auckland where international producer Greg Haver produced two songs that were released as the singles Brain Bell Jangler and Superstition. Finally, production moved back home to Brendan’s home studio in Papamoa where the last tracks were completed to finish the project.

“I started out writing songs using more of a singer-songwriter approach delivered with rock guitars and you can definitely hear the influence of the nineties rock sound on some tracks but as things evolved I diversified into ballads and pop rock that introduced more piano, synth and violin – so I guess the record is a journey in soundscape as well ”

Generation Overload will be available for digital download or CD at apollosteamtrain.com plus streaming on all popular services.
