Lindo Sessions – “Sell My Soul” by Foreign Affairs (Live)
Started by brothers Adam and Lawrence in 2012, the band’s first summer saw them booked for Glastonbury Festival, by owner Michael Eavis, as well as performances at Iconic Bristol venues ‘The Thekla’ ‘The Louisiana’ and airplay via BBC Introducing. Since bursting onto the local scene, tours have taken them throughout the UK, playing with the likes of ‘The Lone Bellow’, ‘Marika Hackman’ and ‘Ren Harvieu’, tours have also covered Belgium and Switzerland.
In the studio for most of 2014, the band have now settled on a trio line up, with the addition of bass player Ben Sweeney and are now set to release three, three track EP’s over the next 18 months, with the first release set for June 2015 and a 22 date festival tour to follow, including 2 shows at Glastonbury Festival.
There are times throughout the history of music that siblings have not been a great mix when it comes to forming bands. There are some awesome exceptions to the rule when you consider the brothers Robinson, Davies, Greenwood, Young, Johnston, Fogerty, Van Halen…and as of 2012, the brothers Purnell! Hailing from Keynsham, just outside Bristol and a stone’s throw from the Lindo HQ, thankfully these guys were not influenced by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band!
The music these guys make is years ahead of the small amount of time they have so far spent on this planet. Their songs are perfectly executed with some of the catchiest melodies you’re likely to hear this year and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see them live this summer, as their schedule is vast, amazing and very well deserved, as I know Mr Eavis would agree! Slick and rhythmic guitar playing is backed up by bass lines that will have you more than tapping your feet. And when younger brother and lead vocalist Lawrence lets rip with the vocals, you’ll certainly pay attention. Lead vocals also give way to incredible 3-part harmonies, which certainly show these guys off as musicians that have honed their craft.
We think the world will be seeing a lot more of Foreign Affairs in future!
