This one goes out for all my alt-post emo hardcore music enthusiasts out there. Straight out from Newcastle Upon tyne, UK, this indie rock band bares an emotional sound full of grit and aggression. So, darken your clothes and strike a violent pose with LULL’s latest single, “Refuge“.
Hi, my international friends! MadZen here and if you miss our previous article by this mates you can catch up with “Fed Up” right here. Today we have a very special feature from this British hard rockers, LULL. Born out from the North East UK hardcore scene, this fellas take influence from the values and standards that come from such culture and are very much a part of the scene, even if they’re not strictly hardcore themselves.
Grant Andrews (vocalist and songwriter), Jack Jacob (drums), TBA (bass), Jordan Evans (guitar), and Martin Riley (guitar), decided to work together and form LULL, uniting heavy bass tones, strong vocals, sick guitar riffs and catchy themes throughout all their tracks.
Pulling influence from artists and bands such as Citizen, Basement, Alexisonfire and Title Fight, this gentlemen like their music raw and emotional, and “Refuge” is not the exception. Immediately starting with a smoldering guitar tone and slamming drums, this track turns suddenly into a big a$$ chorus that punches right through with Grant’s fierce vocals, which ever continue to grow throughout the track.
Despite the short time they’ve been on the scene, LULL has already received a decent amount of coverage from radio stations such as BBC Radio Introducing with Nick Roberts, Frankie Francis and Charlie Ashcroft at Amazing Radio. Also, write ups and reviews from Chalkpit Records, Eat This Rock, YMX, LastDayDyf, The Other Side Reviews and more.
LULL is aiming to release a steady stream of singles which they will wrap into EPs and LPs throughout the year, and for that they’ve teamed up with Fourth Audio and Lee Johnson, who was helped bring forth bands such as GroundCulture, Gold Bloom and more.
Now, I don’t know about you but I’m positively anxious to hear what they drop next, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and hear!
