Hailed by The Independent’s music guru Simon Price as the band to fill The White Stripes’ empty shoes, The Lost Souls Club are a UK band who play rock as it should be: dark, dirty and energized with a psychedelic twist. With reverb, fuzz and massive hooks the band belong with the likes of The Dead Weather, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Jesus and The Mary Chain.
The band’s sinister rock is perfect for a long drive through the night along a lonely road with nothing but heartache for company, but they also have a musical alter ego – a brooding acoustic side that is just as thrilling as their rock’n’roll, with a naked intensity that echoes the sounds of Nick Cave and Johnny Cash.
Having just signed to JL Booking agency (Nine Black Alps, Spotlight Kid, Passenger), The Lost Souls Club are now are touring High Noon, their debut EP, which has already picked up glowing reviews in the UK and in Asia and Australia (where they toured in 2012). The theme running through the EP – from which the ‘High Noon’ title originates – is the idea of a showdown between two opposing sides of oneself: arrogance and insecurity. The mirrored image on the cover echoes this idea of duality.
High Noon was self-produced and recorded, apart from opening track, Romeo which was produced by the eminent Sam Bell (Editors, REM, Bloc Party). With BBC Introducing already hailing them as a ‘Band to Watch’ in 2013, this year is set to be a big one for The Lost Souls Club.
