While the pair met in the UK capital, their music looks for its inspiration in the distortion and frayed denim of great American alt-pop. Think the likes of the Pixies, Pavement and more recently Yuck and you’re getting close to the rough and ready, hook heavy sounds they produce.
Debut EP This Could Be a Bridge is a good way into the pair’s songwriting skills. The fuzzy sounds of the title track teeters around Stephanie’s vocals before collapsing into a gloriously chaotic heap. Their mix of feedback and deft electronic touches has already caught the ears of Pitchfork, Dummy and Rolling Stone. It says a lot for the expectation surrounding this relatively newly formed band.
Post Louis are currently upping their workload as they gear up to release This Could Be A Bridge on 12 November via Inflated/Stare Records. The duo have expanded to a six piece for their live shows and are currently on tour supporting New York act Porcelain Raft. Check the title track from their new EP below…
