The Lost Souls Club are a UK band who play rock as it should be; dark, brooding and sexy, energized with a psychedelic twist. The sound of reverb, fuzz and massive hooks delivered with passion puts them sound wise alongside The Dead Weather, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Mazzy Star, The White Stripes and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Recently featured on BBC Introducing and hailed by the panel including The Independent’s Simon Price as a band to fill The White Stripes’ empty shoes.
After appearing at China's Inter City Music Festival in Beijing The Lost Souls Club hit 2011 running and were booked to headline a tour of Asia, sponsored by Tiger Beer. This was a sell-out tour wowing crowds across the Mekong Delta in Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh City & Hanoi. March saw them off to Toronto, to perform at The Canadian Music Fest 2011, and then, as a result of their performance at the One Movement Festival 2010 in Perth, they have been on the road again, touring Vietnam, Singapore and Australia from November to January this year. In the weeks up to setting off they have also won the Best Alternative Act Prize at the 2011 Exposure Music Awards in the UK.
SIMON PRICE: (The Independent)
“Romeo has a great opening riff and vocal line. The lyrical themes are suitably noir…so they sit alongside bands like The White Stripes and The Black Keys….and look like a junior Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds”
MISCHA PEARLMAN (Freelance journalist – KERRANG, Clash, Record Collector)
“Perfect to soundtrack both wild Friday nights of excess and the gloomy sad Sundays that always follow, the likes of Kiss Away The Sun and Romeo are monochromatic slices of life that retrace and then reinvent those such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Raveonettes who came before them. The guitars are fuzzy, the vocals sleazy, the songs themselves urgent and paranoid, almost as if they’re scared of the impending sunrise. It’s thrilling stuff.”
“Their dark, pulsing rock swirls with a sinister malice that sets the tone perfectly...”
“The Lost Souls Club maybe a musical home for the heartbroken and dreamers, but on this showing I think they'll very soon need to start booking larger venues in which to hold their meetings, as they are about to explode.
"With hints of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as NIN-edge that remains, there’s a real intensity that really makes it hard to turn away. There’s something dark and wrong going on here, but at the same time its irresistible… you just want to reach out and touch it."
