Picked up by Joe Strummer’s foundation Strummerville and given the means to record their first tracks, Lois & The Love will release a double A-side single on November 19th through Normal Recordings Limited. Fronted by the apparently somewhat unhinged Lois Winstone, (who could give Alison Mosshart a run for her money in terms of stage presence) Lois & The Love also includes Lois’ childhood friend Dean Sharpe (guitar,keys), Oli Longmore (bass) and Ed Banda (drums).
What immediately grabs your attention in their music is THE VOICE! Lois’ vocals are without parallel in the current music scene, reminiscent of Janis Joplin belting out Piece Of My Heart. The double A-side offers two quite different tracks, Rabbit Hole is a punk/rock’n'roll hybrid and Dark Serenade has a bluesy feel with psychedelic overtones, harbouring a powerful chorus.
