“Writing this EP felt really good, it all came together really quickly and the majority of the songs just fell into place.” explains singer Tallulah; “I felt I had lots of phrases saved up in my head that I couldn’t wait to put into my lyrics. The EP looks at themes of acceptance to people who have hurt you before, letting your doubts leave you and feeling free. Playing these songs live this summer has been so refreshing, I still feel so passionately about a lot of the lyrics, which makes it feel very therapeutic to perform. Working with Alan Moulder on recording the EP was amazing, he was so open to our ideas and really helped our vision come to life.”
The band are rounding off a stacked summer of festivals and tours having played All Points East (where Yeah Yeah Yeahs dedicated ‘Maps’ to the band), Reading + Leeds (headlining the BBC Introducing stage), Mad Cool, End Of The Road, Dot To Dot, Visions, 4 riotous shows at The Great Escape and more, with the trio still set to embark on North America and UK support tours with Royal Blood this autumn.
‘A Thousand Times’ EP lead single ‘Treasure’ reached the BBC Radio 6 Music B-List as well as a ‘Next Wave’ on BBC Radio 1, with the EP earning widespread support from The Sunday Times, The Independent, NME, Dork, DIY, Clash, Gigwise and many more. Tallulah, Lola & Alfie are ripping up the template and ripping up stages across the UK. Having only recently left school, their rarified live energy and sound has already won the support of Beck, Karen O, Courtney Love, Nova Twins, Wolf Alice, Jack Saunders, John Kennedy and Matt Wilkinson.
