Melbourne band The Triangles get their song in Spanish ad, then goes to the top of the charts

A song by a Melbourne band called The Triangles has hit number one on the Spanish charts after it was used in a TV ad for the beer brand, Estrella Damm.

The band’s song “Applejack” is currently on the top of the iTunes Top 10 singles chart in Spain and the YouTube clip has had over 875,000 views.

Melbourne-based music supervision company Level Two submitted the song to Estrella Damm to be used as the soundtrack for the beer brand’s summer ad campaign created by its agency Villarrosas, in Barcelona.

In May, The Triangles were flown to Menorca to star in the commercial, with the full version of the TV spot featuring Applejack in its entirety.

The song originally appeared on The Triangles’ 2005 album Magic Johnson released by independent record label, Half a Cow.
