Andrew Brassleay (Synths) and Millie Gaum (Vocals) from England recently got together to form the new-romantics duo – From Apes To Angel.
From Apes To Angels
Rather than a band review, it is more of an apology, Head & Heart, which is available on bandcamp, has been sitting in my email inbox since the 29th of last month.
Hang on you may be thinking – if you are of longer stay – is that Andrew B. of Senopia? You are right and Senopia continues to thrive with Andrew remaining as part of the line-up.
From Apes To Angel is currently burrowing away on the release of their début EP planned for next year, which I hope to be able to catch and bring to your attention more quickly than this has been delayed.

Senopia, based in London – England , is Pia B (Vocals), Andrew B (Bass / Guitar / Programming / Vocals), David H (Drums) and Rich W (Guitar) an electro-rock band comprising members from Finland, Austria and England.
Electro-rock when in the hands of skilled creators can be a stunning space in which to spend time and the fact that I am writing about Senopia is a clue to my thoughts. Combining ability with a breadth of cultural influences enables the quartet to offer music with a broad wingspan.
The combinations of synthetic sounds and instrumentation gives the quartet an ethereal outline within which the compositions form solid blocks of being which flash across the brain. Another band to spend considerable time to allow the music to soak the brain. Senopia are able to portray their ideas inside tracks which never extend beyond their welcome, though flood the audience in considered deliberations.
For a moment of tranquillity the quartet offer an enticing spa in which to unwind as the smoke wafts around the room. My only surpise being that after nearly four years their profile remains subsumed. One can only hope that their debut LP Modern Squalor which came out yesterday will raise that profile to a far wider audience.
