Longfellow
Longfellow Long For 'remedy' Ep!
30th March 2015

* ALT.POPSTERS LONGFELLOW LONG FOR SOME HEALING *
* BRAND NEW ‘REMEDY’ EP DUE FOR RELEASE ON APRIL 20TH *

South London's muscular purveyors of heart-on-sleeve alt.pop LONGFELLOW will be releasing their new ‘Remedy’ four-track EP on April 20th, headed up by the mellow gold sounds of radio single ‘Where I Belong’.

The gently crescendonic quintet started the year with a packed semi-secret show at the Old Blue Last to launch their recent ‘Medic’ single, which spent Christmas most excellently ensconced on the playlists of Radio 2, 6 Music and Xfm. They followed that up with their biggest headline show so far at the Borderline on February 26th - happy, if slightly emotional days, and those days will be even more emotional with this release here:

The Band: LONGFELLOW
The Release: THE ‘REMEDY’ EP
The Formats: FOUR-TRACK COMPACT DISC & DOWNLOAD
The Release Date: APRIL 20TH 2015
The Tracklisting:
1 ‘WHERE I BELONG’
2 ‘MEDIC’
3 ‘FABRIC’
4 ‘CHOKEHOLD’

The Truth: LONGFELLOW have been building a gently fearsome reputation for crossover antics over the past year. Alumni of the BBC Introducing academy the fivesome have hit the Radio 2 playlist (twice), hit North America (twice also) and toured with Hall & Oates (once) while simultaneously hanging around the uber-indie fierce panda farm and rattling around the London toilet circuit peddling a brand of louche alt.pop encapsulated in last year’s ‘Prelude’ mini-album and recent ‘Medic’ single, which is included on this here ‘Remedy’ EP.

This here ‘Remedy’ EP is the last release pit stop before the band focus on racing through their debut album. After the epic hook-laden chaos of ‘Medic’ lead-off track ‘Where I Belong’ is relatively refined and restrained, albeit with the usual impeccable sense of Longfellow melodic style. The fearsomely enigmatic video mirrors this clear-eyed ode to misery – not for nothing does it open with a butt naked singer Owen lying in the middle of a freezing Ashford Forest in January.

“Stripping down to the nakedness was supposed to symbolise our refusal to accept what we know is inevitable, that no matter how far technology and culture advances we’ll always be answerable to nature,” muses the now-defrosted frontman. “Ultimately ‘Where I Belong’ focuses on grief, whether it’s something as serious as they death of a loved one or as trivial as the loss of a lover.”

Such is contemplative life with Longfellow, a band who are never knowingly underthought. Suitably, the ‘Remedy’ EP is rounded off by the rowdy perambulations of ‘Fabric’ and the mighty ‘Chokehold’, which is Longfellow’s most coherent outburst of epic emotionalings yet - all thrillers, no fillers, in fact. Come get some remedy at these live Longfellow wing-dings here…
