The Lost Souls Club brought their fuzzy rock’n’roll sound to the Great Escape in Brighton this year. The Southampton based group played a 9-track afternoon set at the Queens Hotel on Saturday (12th May).
For those who haven’t heard of this band before – be aware. If your musical soul loves to take a dose of a dark, thrilling noise with explosive guitar riffs and well written lyrics, then The Lost Souls Club is for you.
Jon Tufnell (vocal, guitar), Simon Jackson (guitar), James Freemantle (bass) and Jon Lamont (drums) have a true passion and the right kind of charisma on stage. Their strong musicianship brings a very special effect to their performance and they create a powerful atmosphere in the room. While adding some great instruments like harmonica to their sound, their incredible musical talent shows off beautifully on stage.
The set included songs like Compassion Fatigue, where Jon was amazingly rocking the harmonica to the full; or the slower and dreamy I know I Spoke Too Soon and one of the highlights of the set for me was a powerful track called Heathen, which has a great western feel to it and nice meaningful lyrics. Their top track Romeo was the perfect finishing song, and if you haven’t heard it yet, watch the video below and enjoy the smashing opening riff that makes you connect to it within seconds.
The band has officially released two singles so far – Romeo and Leave the Light On, which are both available on iTunes and you can also hear some other great tracks on their YouTube Page.
But from what I’ve heard on Saturday, clearly the band has a lot more in store and I assure you it’s something to look forward to!
The Lost Souls Club have the ability to write and create music that strikes right through you, somehow makes you feel at home and for that reason, you’ll find yourself joining the club without even noticing.
