Words: Saam Das
Liu Bei/Lou Bay. "A warlord in the late Eastern Han dynasty who founded the state of Shu Han in the Three Kingdoms period and became its first ruler". Also, a new band led by former solo artist Richard Walters, and featuring Dry The River live member Patrick James Pearson. Listen to their debut single 'Infatuation' below, ahead of its release on paradYse Records.
Now we're not all that familiar with Walters' previous efforts but we're assuming they're not all as potty mouthed as 'Infatuation'. The music has a purer beauty to it, haunting and shimmering - partly due to the good work of producer James Kenosha, who has worked with RHODES, an artist of similar ilk. We're certainly ready to hear more from Liu Bei.
'Infatuation'/'Atlas World' is out on 7 July. Find more info at facebook.com/liubeiwins.
