Spellbinding, sunny garage pop-stomp from London saturated with primal riffs and beats and spikily sugar-coated vocals. Girl group melodies, mystic organ sounds and punchy bass ascend into the heart-shaped soundwave. Borrowing their name from the immortal spoken word intro to The Shangri-Las classic ‘Give Him A Great Big Kiss’, Love L.U.V. released their debut double A-side single ‘You Do Something / Lily Anne‘ in April 2014 and played a number of acclaimed shows in London, before ending the summer with a performance at Portmeirion’s Festival No. 6. A six track EP ‘Come See Me’ followed in December, set for a limited cassette release in early 2015 on Workerbee Records.
“Swagger, glamorous rock ‘n’ roll with some Spector-esque moments, this is like The Ramones swapping leather jackets with ‘The Leader Of The Pack’.” Clash
“…the beautifully crafted spectral pop of ‘You Do Something’ already sounds like a classic to our ears. Their girl group harmonies will draw comparisons with Phil Spector’s pop aesthetic, but theirs is a harder psyche edged sound displayed on the storming garage pop of ‘Lily Anne'” The Quietus “
Taking their name – and the strong ’60s girl-band vibe – from The Shangri-Las, Love L.U.V. sound as sweet as sugar on ‘You Do Something ‘ and ‘Lily Anne’. The two garage-pop gems are as cute as they are catchy, and they formed the band’s impressive debut single release earlier this year.” NME
