If you’re looking to freshen up your music collection with some amazing blues rock, americana or folk tunes, then check out the following ‘must hear’ artists and bands in this week’s playlist.
The Lost Souls Club have released a new smoldering video for their track Kiss Away the Sun, taken from their EP High Noon.
Once again, you’ll find yourself completely drawn into the picture and sound of this Southampton rock sensation.
Great news is, the band is releasing a new acoustic EP called Storm Sessions this month.
Yes, you should definitely be excited!
The Lost Souls Club have released their highly anticipated EP High Noon on Friday 8th June via rocktastic EP launch at The Joiners in Southampton. All their close friends and fans have gathered together to come and celebrate with the band at this very special occasion and enjoy some great support line up from the Dolomite Minor and The Witches.
Being just 16 year old, the opening act from Southampton, blues/rock’n’roll duo Dolomite Minor left the audience stunned with their incredible performance and a rare talent coming from the singer/guitarist Joe who could be easily compared to the likes of a young Kurt Cobain and a drummer Max who might as well be one of the best young drummers out there. Their songs have a great energy and a quality guitar tunes and if they are able to achieve this at such a young age, we can only imagine what’s about to come from Dolomite Minor in the future. Check out the music on their Facebook Page.
Next up were The Witches. Seeing them live for the third time (check out my review of their latest EP launch here) the guys never fail to surprise me with their ability to create a unique and fun atmosphere while giving all their energy into their performance. Loud and exciting, amazing full on vocals and little jokes between the songs put a smile on people’s faces. The Witches’ power left everyone pretty warmed up and ready for the main act whom we all came to support, The Lost Souls Club.
EP release is always a very special moment for any band . For The Lost Souls Club it means a step forward, a green light to the next path of their musical journey. Their music is officially out there for more people to make a connection with it and to gain more like minded followers who will be touched by the sound coming from their deepest selves.
And that’s what you get when seeing The Lost Souls Club live. A deep, charismatic performance coming from each one of the members, widely reaching to the audience while expressing and releasing all the emotions and feelings they put into their music and lyrics.
The great connection and passion on stage is unmissable and creates an intense and soulful atmosphere which makes seeing this band a truly enjoyable and unforgettable live experience.
The High Noon EP consist of five tracks, each one of them deep and moody, with various stories to tell. Starting off with the famous Romeo which sets off the vibe of the record with its killer riff while the second track Kiss Away the Sun is more laid back but still very powerful with it’s melancholic tune.
The sound gets darker and fuzzier again with Shoot Me Down and lyrically epic and energetic track We’re All Gonna Die Anyway for which the band made a special video showing a footage from their exciting tour in Asia, Australia and Canada (watch below). Finishing off with the calmest track on the EP I know I Spoke Too Soon, the record leaves you with a desire to hear more of the Lost Souls Club’s moving sound.
The band played a great set at the launch including all five tracks from the EP and many other songs among which we got to hear Son You Look Like You Need Jesus, Heathen, Compassion Fatigue, Ordinary Love, Slipping Away or Leave the Light On.
It was a truly memorable performance with people dancing away and clearly enjoying all the rock’n’roll noise while getting a chance to win some limited t-shirts from the band.
With announcing the last song but audience not having it and cheering for more, soon after the guys were back on stage rocking away and closing the gig with Leave the Light On.
Everyone who was at The Joiners that night knows that this band doesn’t belong on a small stage but to big sold out venues. But with the EP finally out and more material waiting to be released, I believe that The Lost Souls Club fan base is going to grow fast.

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.
