Pablo & The Appleheads Release Nightclub Inspired Video For New Single 'Zaida'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Barcelona's vintage- folk-rock revivalists Pablo and The Appleheads have dropped the video for their insanely catchy new single 'Zaida', taken from the upcoming album Alessandra.

Shot in a sultry nightclub with some evocative, expert camera work, 'Zaida', touches on the theme of recreational drug use, with the band's acoustic guitar led style sitting in a oddly mesmerising contrast to the setting of the dark nightclub.

Encapsulating a style that falls somewhere in between indie and pop, Pablo and The Appleheads look back through the history books for their primary inspiration, taking influence from the likes of classic acts such as Oasis, David Bowie, The Police, Radiohead, and The Beatles, who they are often compared to.

However, Pablo has had music running through his veins even before he was born, with his mother being a singer and songwriter for jingles and adverts, whilst his father was the saxophonist in famed Spanish rock band, Loquillo y los Trogloditas. Ever since he could walk, Pablo was dancing to VHS tapes of his favourite bands, but it wasn't until he was 19 that he began to take music more seriously, writing his own songs and learning the guitar. With his mother as his teacher, Pablo transformed into a prolific songwriter, covering topics as diverse as love, politics and even drugs.

As many listeners may wonder, the name Pablo and The Appleheads was actually inspired by René Magritte's iconic painting, The Son of Man, which portrays a suited man with an apple for a face. Not only this, but although Pablo's musical background is rooted in classic bands that he grew up listening to, he is inspired deeply by more contemporary artists too, such as Elliot Smith, Death Cab For Cutie and Arcade Fire. As a result, this collision of modern sounds with vintage influences culminates in a highly-crafted mix of old and new that borrows elements from the best in the business.
