The History of Apple Pie – 'Out of View'
- Rated as: 4/5
It’s hard to write about The History of Apple Pie without bad pastry-related puns, but we’ll try. These Londoners make a euphoric racket the old-fashioned way: bass, drums, and two heavily processed guitars. ‘Out of View’ is THOAP’s debut, and despite sometimes teetering into twee-pop territory – the customised ice cream van on the album cover doesn’t help – it’s an impressive listen. The searing shoegaze of ‘I Want More’ and the jagged, Blur-plays-Garbage alt.rock of ‘The Warrior’ prove that although THOAP are sugar-sweet, they’ve got enough crunch to be very tasty indeed. Damn – almost made it.
