Quote:
Louellen are one of the most exciting new bands to come out of South-East England. Taking influence from the broodier side of alternative American artists such as Sonic Youth, Elliott Smith and Interpol, Louellen use a mix of guitar driven drones and delicate melodies to create a conceptually exciting sound.

Quote:
Louellen are a band from the South-East of England. Comprising of Christian Corless (Vocals, Guitars), Richard Picot (Guitars, Vocals), Harry Thomas (Bass) and Joss Pennington (Drums). They provide intricate and layered melodies combined with cinematic drones and climaxes influenced by the sounds of Sonic Youth, Elliott Smith, My Bloody Valentine and Interpol to create something truly unique.

Louellen are currently recording their first EP at The Dairy in Brixton, London which will be available very soon.

Great friends of mine and will be working with them on their distribution, promotion etc. work via "7Ravens". Really amazing as a band.

There is a lot of talent here, and I am sure that they have big things coming there way. Some very nice music.
Also love the flyer above.

It reminds me of The National quite a bit. Definitely a good thing.

Their gig last night in Brixton went really well. Got a few surprises for the Barfly gig. People really should listen to them. "Salao" is such a beaut.
