Biography

The Truth: LONGFELLOW live in South London. They consist of Owen Lloyd (vocals), James Thomas (guitar), Ali Hetherington (keyboards), Lewis Fowler (bass) and Tom Warhurst (drums). ‘Prelude’ is an early-career-defining mini-album release which collects together their three digital singles released since last summer and contextualises (if you will) a gently hectic first year for this most fresh-faced of bands.

On June 11th 2013 Longfellow played their debut show in this formation at the Highbury Buffalo Bar for Club Fandango. The subsequent trio of singles were ‘Gabrielle’ (released July 2013 on their own label), ‘Siamese Lover’ (released February this year on Label Fandango) and ‘Kiss-Hug-Make Up’ (launched in May on fierce panda). ‘Prelude’ throws in the b-sides to all the singles (‘May The Light’, ‘The Convent’ and ‘Wolf Cry’ respectively), adds a couple of band favourites in ‘Polaroid’ and ‘Lullaby’ and gets ready to crumble.

For these are thoroughly sensitive souls, often described as epic purveyors of melodically charged alt.pop. With Longfellow it’s all about art-on-sleeve emoting, where passion outwits fashion and no chorus is ever knowingly undersold. All eight of these tracks were painstakingly home-recorded in a bedroom on Brockley Road, Lewisham, as were the other 30 or so stadia-sized songs they have quietly stockpiled in SE4.
