The group that would eventually become Apartment X formed when Pascual Di Tella and Quinn Scanlan became friends, drawn together by their shared love of music. In his youth, Pascual had trained both in piano and in music theory and Quinn was a talented guitar player; it seemed a perfect match. They originally played casually together, but began taking their musical goals more seriously last fall. That’s when Apartment X (named after the apartment where the group makes its music), as it’s known today, was formed. Since then, they’ve added a drummer (junior Juan José Jiménez) and a bassist (freshman Jacob Allen). In many respects, success has come remarkably quickly. To gain the attention of music critics and interested listeners, Apartment X usually submits its music to well-known playlists curated by respected names in the industry. Their track “Young” was recently featured in the French playlist “Dealer de Musique,” granting the group both attention and confirmation of the quality of their work.
