With her 50’s glamour looks and sultry voice there’s not a lot not to like about Louise Hull. Combine that with perfect folk / pop / rock ‘n’ roll inspired melodies and two harmonious backing singers – Bethan Gorman and Sara Templeman – then you have a perfect band: Louise & The Pins. These girls have been capturing a lot of attention recently and building up a number of live dates which other newcomers would kill for: supporting Laura Marling as well as a recent set at this year’s Glastonbury.
There is no time to pause as they prepare for the release of their debut LP which is due for release later this year, you can get a glimpse of what to expect in the startling beautiful AA single ‘Melancholy/Beauty Strange’. Out on September 5th through Chess Club, the record is bursting at the seams with tender acoustics and pays homage to the Torch Singers of the fifties.
