Cardiff’s LUVV have very quickly become an obsession, somehow managing to translate my current emotional state into 4 minutes of brutal and liberating post-punk. If I’m being honest, I’ve been keeping Free to myself for the past few days… carefully soaking up every burst of it’s raw and beautiful brilliance. With a sound reminiscent of Eagulls and a knack for writing explosive hooks, LUVV are threatening to push me over the edge, confronting loneliness and despair with snarls of defiance. Perhaps it’s the way I’m feeling… but I’m tempted to say they might just be the most exciting band I’ve heard all year.
