Since stepping out of the shadows late last year, LULS seem to be on a continuous rise. Following a well-received double A-side single, 'Youth'/'Swing Low', the trio have impressed in the live arena, notching up support slots with Theme Park and Peace along the way. New single 'Never Let It Go' is another storming effort.
Somewhat surprisingly 'Never Let It Go' hasn't quite had the press its predecessor had. Although it's not actually out for another month so plenty of time for that to change. A roaring guitar anthem, 'Never Let It Go' is similar in scope to the aforementioned 'Swing Low'.
Having seen LULS play the track live before listening to the single version, the latter does lack something. But this is a minor complaint, the underlying song is quite superb, with those soaring vocal hooks an obvious highlight. It's just extra punchy when played live - well worth experiencing yourself. All the more so, when you don't have to pay such as tonight's gig at the Tram & Social in Tooting (with FG faves Thumpers) or at their free single launch on March 4th!
'Never Let It Go' will be out on 11th March through Killing Moon. Find more info at facebook.com/LULSofficial.
