So far in their short time together, London trio LULS have already marked themselves out as an exciting prospect – a band capable of creating huge, filmic anthems that wind up and skyrocket off into the stratosphere. ‘Sympathy Or Love’ is no different.
The b-side to their next single ‘Never Let It Go’, it’s a little mellower than the flipside (or anything else we’ve heard from them so far) but still starts soaring come the chorus. It’s got the perfect contrast of Adam Prendergast’s slightly strained, pitched-up vocals and Shaun Paterson’s deeper, almost rumbling croon, spiralling, enveloping guitars and deliciously solemn lyrics. If this is the quality of LULS’ b-sides, a more full-length record should be out-of-this-world astounding.
