Heroically crestfallen alt.popsters Longfellow hermes kelly replica outletmay not be releasing their second single ���Siamese Lover��� until January 27th but the promotional campaign inadvertently started way ahead of even their own schedule: in late October Longfellow supported Keane at their special anniversary show in Tunbridge Wells Forum and dazzled the keen masses; barely a week later they played such a vibrant set at the Shacklewell replica mulberry handbags Arms that an impressed Steve Lamacq ended up playing 'Siamese Lover' on BBC 6 Music the very next day - a mere two and-a-half months before release.
Since then the single has been played across the circuit board from Amazing to Xfm and from Jo Whiley on Radio 2 through to BBC Introducing's Unsigned Band Of The Week on Huw Stephens in the first week of replica mulberry handbags 2014. Pretty impressive for a new band with only one release beneath their collective belt - last summertime's 'Gabrielle' selfie - and even more so when one considers they haven't yet got a radio plugger. There's also a smashingly mysterious and faintly murderous 'Siamese Lover' video lurking over at YOU TUBE
It all fits, too: if you like your music with an epic overview and a melancholic undercurrent then Longfellow could well be Your New Favourite Band. Five heartbreakers-in-waiting they consist of Owen Lloyd (vocals), Tom Warhurst (drums), louis vuitton replica handbags James Thomas (electric guitar), Isaac Shiman (bass) and Ali Hetherington (piano / synth). They lurk in South London and create a modest, authentic and soulful mixture of indie and pop, bolstered by fearless melodies and large choruses.
'Siamese Lover' is released on January 27th on Label Fandango / fierce panda, thereby joining excellent releases by the likes of Desperate Journalist, Felt Tip, Feldspar, I Am In Love, Machine Room, The Starkins, Habitats and more.
