Self-described as a psychedelic chamber ensemble for the disobedient and melancholic youth, Milwaukee’s Social Caterpillar have been playing and recording a unique style of music that defies simple categorization together since 2016. Their sound combines deeply personal lyrics with an ethic towards protest layered over acoustic and distorted guitars and a pounding rhythm section mixed with sprawling string and horn arrangements.
Apollo Vermouth was born from the somber remains of cloudy memories, personal psychedelics, and suburban decay - operating as a distant siren out of Milwaukee’s experimental underbelly. Her transmissions point skyward as allusive sonic memoirs, slowly floating back to the earth as testaments of a much larger context: hope, honesty, and love for those trapped in a cold, unforgiving world.
