LUSTS Announce new single ‘Waves’ – released digitally 28/8/15
November headline UK tour
Listen to ‘Waves’ below
“Urgent and commanding” – Guardian (New band of the Week)
“They’re like hidden gems, a newfound relic of a generation lost” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Lusts take their cues from new wave, with glimmering synth lines piercing through urgent swathes of guitar” – NME
Lusts have announced a new single for 1965 Records.
The single ‘Waves’ will be available via digital download from 28/8/15. It will also receive a limited 7” vinyl release of only 500 copies at a later date.
‘Waves’ follows the bands first two singles, ‘Mouthwash’ and ‘Temptation’ which DIY dubbed a “glistening, new wave-nodding exciting debut” and XFM and Radio 1 dutifully delivered support by spinning on several occasions and with 6Music crowning the single the winner of their rebel playlist.
Lusts are brothers Andy and James Stone from Leicester evoking both the classic woozy chorus’ and reverb laden guitars of Echo and the Bunnymen and the new wave pop sensibilities of Beach Fossils.
Following a successful support slot on the recent Coves UK tour, a Club NME show and festival appearances at Cardiff SWN, Amsterdam London Calling and Leicester Hand Made, Lusts continue to build their live presence with a headline slot at Huw Stephens Presents at the Heavenly Social, an appearance at Secret Garden Party and a headline show at London’s Sebright Arms:
