Gig preview: LOUX single launch at 360 Club new music showcase in Leeds

Have your say

LOUX are an electronic three-piece band from Leeds, whose music blends an energetic and carefully subtle array of effects-laden guitars, minimal yet warm drum rhythms and hypnotic vocals.

They release their debut single, Meet Me Halfway, on November 10 and play a launch show at the 360 Club on the day of the release.

Meet Me Halfway is built on layers of synth textures and guitar countermelodies, which crash into a chorus led by arpeggiated analog bass synth.

The single follows the release of two live videos, Darling and Lungs, both filmed at the Victoria Baths in Manchester earlier this year.

LOUX played their first live show in July this year. Their second show, which took place the very next day, was at the Blue Dot Festival at Jodrell Bank, where they shared a bill with the likes of Alt-J, Orbital, Pixies, Leftfield and Warpaint. Quite an achievement.

“We’re really pleased with the response we’ve had so far,” says guitarist Chris. “It was an absolute pleasure to play at Blue Dot to such a big crowd and see so many people as passionate about our music as we are. We just can’t wait to do more.”

With so much achieved in so little time, passionate support from BBC Introducing, a growing live reputation, and several observers speaking of the band in the same breath as Alt-J, it may not be long before they experience such big crowds again.

They will be joined at The Library, Leeds by fellow Leeds band Mugen, who launch their own Come And Go single on the same day.
