Apollo Bebop’s newest offering is dedicated to the women in their lives, and is rammed with smooth bass lines and chilled-out beats. Brian from the group says: “I grew up with mostly women in my life. I saw first-hand how much more women have to work in this society. Fighting stereotypes, gender-inequality, etc. To me, women are the most resilient people on the planet.”
“This is not a song to say I’ll be their hero, rather a supporter if they need one, a helping hand if they want it, and an appreciator of their work. As a male, I feel I need to let women know I stand by them and also remind other men to know to appreciate and acknowledge the work women do.”
