“Totally off my face I listen to popular music…”
Hull punks, LIFE announce new single ‘Popular Music’, their follow up to 2015’s debut EP I Knew I Was a Rat. Collaborating again with Grammy winning producer Ian Dowling (recent producer of Bombay Bicycle Club, Wavves and The Orwells), the band have made a new record that slams head on into the dirty girth of modern day, popular culture, whilst retaining a fair measure of its own raucous pop sensibility.
Last year saw LIFE work closely with BBC Introducing, capping off an extensive run of live dates (including Great Escape, Dot 2 Dot, Swn Festival, Liverpool Sound City and sell out supports with Palma Violets, Twin Peaks and Twin Atlantic) with a spot on the Introducing stage at Leeds & Reading Festival. On top of this the band stacked up an impressive amount of radio coverage thanks to their breakout single ‘Go Go Go’, lead track from their debut EP, supported by the likes of Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy, Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens (the latter placing the track on Radio 1’s Best of BBC Introducing 2015 list) and playlisted on stations such as XFM and Amazing Radio.
LIFE are brothers Mez (vox) & Mick (guitar) with Loz (bass) and Stew (drums). The band will be playing a number of shows throughout 2016.
