"The debut single by London quintet The History of Apple Pie emerged when Jerome looked up from his Star Gate Sequence pedals and his half-sketched song ideas were brought to life with a vocal contribution from Stephanie, who'd never sung until that very moment. Through their music they offer a cloud-covered view of backyard ‘90s America and ‘You’re so Cool’ is an understated, beautiful cut of dreampop.
The band, based in Whitechapel, counts Galaxie 500, ‘13’-era Blur and Pavement as influences, and Jerome as lead guitarist writes guitar lines reminiscent of slacker Gods such as Thurston Moore. Lyrically Stephanie wrote ‘You’re So Cool’ about an old school friend that knew the whole script to the film ‘True Romance’. Particularly, the infamous speech at the climax of the film where the character Alabama Worley repeats the words ‘you’re so cool, you’re so cool’ whilst alluding to her husband Clarence.
They have a sound that is jaded and optimistic, detached and heartfelt. Their daisy-brutal, buttoned-down ferocity and innate melodicism is met halfway by sweetly burnt-out female vocals, sharp and glaring or softly double tracked in homage to Elliott Smith."
"You're So Cool" will be released on limited edition vinyl by Roundtable Records with b-side "Some Kind" on June 27th. You can pre-order the single now at Rough Trade via http://bit.ly/imVYIB
