Fresh but already with high acclaim, London five-piece, Curse Of Lono, released their debut album Severed in spring 2017. A sumptuously cinematic record that combines harmony-laden Americana with driving, gothic alt-rock.
Founded and fronted by Felix Bechtolsheimer, formerly the singer-guitarist in British roots pioneers Hey Negrita, Curse Of Lono formed in early 2015, though the songs on Severed were written over a 14-year period. They range from the perky, Paul Simon-ish single Pick Up The Pieces to the more lugubrious He Takes My Place, the almost jazzy London Rain and the rootsy, rhythmic Send For The Whisky. The album belongs as much to the Americana tradition and old faithfuls such as The Doors and Little Feat as it does to more modern, playful practitioners of the form such as Wilco and Beck.
