LOVERS CLUB – EMPTY BALLROOM BLUES (2018)

Genuine American werewolves in London, Lovers Club have been plying their Cramps meets Lamps country tinged punk experience around the grottiest dive bars in Hackney for the past year or so, and they’ve just put to record three of their best songs on Empty Ballroom Blues. It’s unusual in contrast to the glorious mess of the other releases on this site, but there’s a surplus of fatalist exhalations and melancholy that mean it doesn’t require much translating for fans of things heavier. Shimmering reverb evaporating off the huge semi-hollow looking guitar clings thick to the mix like audible smoke, and the brothers Hatcher aren’t too bad at writing rock ‘n’ roll riffs either, although Lovers Club demonstrate what they’re best at live, amped up twice as loud as necessary and looking very much the part.
