Very recently (yesterday in fact) we introduced you Happy people to the wonders of Louis London‘s brand of indie sweetness – half Gorilla Manor and half Red Yellow and Blue, it brought back memories of putting posters up on my wall and high school love interests. Well produced, tightly performed and that handsome indie vibe which reminds you of the type of youthful road trips that only ever seem to happen in commercials. I mean what young person even owns a mini cooper?
Anyway, Louis London have made their way down to the city of Melbourne to bring some indie sunshine to the Revolver Upstairs, and we’d recommend y’all go take a geez at their show (Fri 13 Dec 2013). They’ll be playing alongside locals The Trotskies, whose track Vis A Vision is seriously reminding me of Pains Of Being Pure At Heart right now, as well as Cardinal who take an anthemic approach to pop guitar music with plenty of rhythmic delay and sustained, uplifting vocals.
If you were a bit of an indie kid back in the day and still have a soft spot for people making innocent, sweet guitar music then we’d recommend heading up to Revolver Upstairs to catch yourself some Louis London. Better yet, crack out that Arctic Monkeys t-shirt from ’06 (hide those sweat stains and moth holes) and those brightly coloured chuck taylors and start the 00’s revival already. I’m pretty over this whole 90’s thing to be honest.
