aplegate is a 5-piece band based in Castlemaine and Naarm/Melbourne, drawing inspiration from psychedelic rock, jazz and the experimental jam band scene. Live performances manifest as a continual fluid set, equally at home in a bush doof or a packed club. aplegate’s live improvisation, interwoven with arrangements melodic and moving, draws its energy from the audience.


"(aplegate’s) invention, articulation, passion, energy and skill with dynamism and nuance are unparalleled in their generation, putting them at the forefront of modern music."
