The Lovetones

The Lovetones is led by Matthew J. Tow (acoustic & electric guitars / sitar / autoharp / vocals), formerly of Drop City, Colorsound and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, along with Matt Sigley (bass / keyboards / vocals) and Chris Cobb (drums / percussion). The Lovetones released their debut album, Be What You Want in 2002 through Bomp! Records, creating a palpable buzz amongst critics from the likes of Creem and Rolling Stone magazine. The latter hailed mainman Matthew J Tow's songwriting worthy of Ray Davies, Bowie, Lennon and McCartney: a bold statement, yet in his case, completely justified.

The Lofty Heights

Originally the brainchild of crooning minstrel Gregory Griffin; a Californian recently transplanted to a giant warehouse in the Manor House area of London, Lofty Heights have since evolved into a band of mid-20’s misfits peddling Colin Meloy influenced indie- pop that spin yarns from lonesome ancient mariners to the perils of sharing the washing-up!
Debut single Eye Contact is a beautifully orchestrated chamber pop ditty that sees Greg interlace Beach Boy inspired harmonies over heartfelt lyrics and rich instrumentation including cello, slide guitar and piano accompaniment.
