‘A unique, brilliant debut…we should celebrate LoneLady as the arrival of a fresh and invigorating voice whose talent transcends time and space and influence‘ NME 9/10
““mesmerising” 9/10 Loud & Quiet
““already one of our favourite albums of 2015” The Guardian
““[Hinterland] deals with muscular riffs, lustful basslines and simple programmed drums… with compelling energy” NME 8/10
“a masterpiece” The Quietus
Scratchy atmospherics, bright pop traces & 70s funk economy/colour workouts over minimal dance grooves and post industrial ruin.
LoneLady is Julie Campbell, and vice versa – there is little artifice involved, but rather a symbiosis between art and creator that manifests itself in the kind of poetic, deeply personal and unapologetic work that becomes timeless music. HINTERLAND comes like a bolt from the dark. At its core beats a special kind of uncomplicated drum machine rhythm and the synthetic timbre of percussion that recalls fractured memories of minimal wave and even early techno, lashed together with LoneLady’s deceptively intricate and propulsive style of guitar playing.
Hannah Lou Clark
Hannah’s debut EP ‘Silent Type’ released in November 2014, marked the first public airing after her previous project ‘Foe’ disbanded two years ago, since then Hannah’s been busy experimenting, writing, re-writing, and building up a stockpile of tunes.
Fond of writers like Charles Bukowski and Billy Childish, Hannah’s lyrics – much like their soundtrack – can be confrontational, and raw, with occasional intent to cause discomfort. “They’re twisted…” she confesses, pausing until the silence becomes awkward, “…pop songs.”
Hannah’s debut has caused quite a stir, lead track ‘Silent Type’ was premiered on Stereogum, and Hannah has deservedly since been lauded by the likes of NME and Clash Mag, with multiple blog posts including Don’t Need No Melody and Earbuddy and championed by the likes of Drowned in Sound as an artist to watch in 2015.
