London lads LONA have had an exciting last few weeks. They have been kept busy by supporting Reverend and The Makers on their UK Tour. I used to listen to Reverend religiously growing up so being part of this tour is quite the achievement for this talented four-piece. I was sent over their latest single ‘Not Listening’ a little while back and just had to give it a little write-up.
The lads operate in a kind of Indie/Commercial realm and certainly are churning out tunes fit for the radio. ‘Not Listening‘ blends electronic elements with some occasional trap hi hats scuttling away in the background. This is music the masses will enjoy, it’s the kind of stuff that gets lapped up by the likes of BBC Radio 1 regularly. These guys have a huge future ahead of them.
Their live performances is where the real draw is. They are one of the most energetic and enthralling live acts on the London scene at the minute. They finish off a jam packed year with one more headline gig in the capital on December the 3rd @ Camden Assembly. Also on the bill that night are Ophelia and Ivory Wave.
