Without Your Love is the brilliant breakout single from APRE, available now on Polydor Records. It acts as the second preview of the London bands mini-album Always In My Head, which will follow on November 6th and was introduced recently by their escapist single, Live It Up. An extensive touring schedule for APRE is additionally being rerouted for 2021, with the band having sold out the Scala earlier this year, played a headline tour around the UK, and also gone on the road with the likes of Sam Fender, Lany, Friendly Fires and Inhaler.

Without Your Love is an epic but intimate cut of alternative pop from APRE, as inspired by a lifelong love of 80s icons like The Police with the idea of placing modern relationships under the microscope: a topic that has become even more pertinent to them whilst apart, and a dilemma that Charlie and Jules neatly summarise as I want to be with this person, but its not allowing me to feel myself, and pursue the life I want to lead. Its kinder sometimes to say goodbye to someone whos had such a positive impact on your life beforehand, if in the long term its better for you both. Without Your Love is about the idea that you shouldn't force yourself to make the relationship work - appreciate what it¹s done for you, and keep moving forward in your life.

APRE are one of the UKs most astute, fiercely creative new bands. Their innatively massive-sounding songs derive from a more introspective, outsider-status: finding few creative opportunities in their respectively-suburban upbringings, it was the unlikely confinement of a West London chess club where APRE formed, and first found their own outlet for escapism. And it's the harsh reality of the outside world that the band have frequently spun on its head over their projects to date. Whether addressing the turbulent political climate (Guns Down EP), the more isolating aspects of technology (Everyone's Commute EP), it all comes together on their debut mini-album, Always In My Head; introduced recently by the seemingly euphoric Live It Up (which actually describes being pushed down by social pressures, and never feeling like you are good enough).

On Always In My Head, APRE refine their eclectic, experimental sound into songs which are as universal and uplifting as they are emotionally open. A band who have always written, recorded, and produced everything DIY on Without Your Love, watch APRE truly come into their own.
