Foreign Family Collective presents edapollo’s new single ‘Only You’

Foreign Family Collective is pleased to present the newest single from multi -talented Melbourne-based producer/performer edapollo. Entitled ‘Only You,” this single is the start of a heavy cycle of releases for the artist.

‘Only You’ is a gorgeous fusion of atmospheric downtempo, electronica, and house music. The uplifting track is built around elements of island-style percussion, hazy atmospheres, a driving beat, and for the first time, edapollo’s own vocals which perfectly tie it all together.

I wrote that track when I was in the UK, back in my parents’ house and I was living there on my own for a month. It was a weird time for me. It felt lonely. I felt like I went back to a previous life I wasn’t living anymore. I set up a makeshift studio in my parents’ kitchen and came up with the track and I remember just blasting it because I was in this house in rural Devon and I could play it as loud as I want. I was really feeling it, dancing around the kitchen, and then I realized it could use a vocal hook that repeats itself, so I started using my voice which allowed me to deliver my message a bit more, rather than searching for samples. It’s euphoric and uplifting but also has an emotional edge which sumarizes where I was at mentally, being lost and letting the music take me to a better placeedapollo says.

edapollo is UK native, Melbourne-based producer Ed Bidgood.

He independently self-released two albums ‘Endless Cascades’ (2019) and ‘Blue Spring’ (2021) which both received widespread critical acclaim from blogs, tastemakers & radio, with regular support from the likes of BBC Radio, Sirius XM, Worldwide FM, Triple J and more allowing him to reach many new listeners and top up over 50 million streams across DSPs. In 2022 he launched his live show with a sold out show in Melbourne (Aus) and London (UK), before touring the US in January 2023 playing a run of sold out shows supporting Mild Minds. 2023 is the start of a new chapter of music, with a new album ‘Technicolour Places’ out in July 2023 and more touring to be announced, it’s a very exciting time ahead.
