LFC007: A Little Better by The Divers (out 26 November)

Photo by Xander Lloyd.

We’re delighted to announce that the next release on Laissez Faire Club Records will be The Divers‘ amazing track “A Little Better”, which will be available from all good digital outlets (iTunes / Spotify included) from Monday 26 November.

We first came across a live studio video of the track from the London based quartet back in January, and it’s probably no exaggeration to say we’ve listened to it almost every day since (and whooped loudly when they’ve dropped it in their live shows).

To our ears, it’s as good as US indie referencing rock-pop gets, and as such we decided we had to get this out there for the world at large to hear. If you appreciate the work of people like Band Of Horses, Wilco, Pearl Jam, The Shins, Elliott Smith, Death Cab For Cutie, et al, we’re of the opinion The Divers will be your new favourite band before too long. Just under three minutes, perhaps, if you hit play on the single below. Go on – treat your ears.

As with all these singles we put out, there will of course be a launch party to celebrate. On this occasion, we can reveal that The Divers will be taking to the stage at The Enterprise in Camden on Tuesday 27 November, a day after the release hits the proverbial shelves, which should give you ample time to learn the words in advance. Supports are TBC at the time of writing – so keep checking back to find out what we have in store (and also for ticketing details).

London gigs diary: 8 October – 14 October

Savages play 2 nights at Electrowerkz this week. Photo by Xander Lloyd.

Another busy week for shows in London town: Monday night sees Australia’s Angus Stone kick off a 2-night residency at The Lexington, with the brilliant Luke Sital-Singh in support. Brighton’s Cave Painting also appear at The Old Queens Head, and the piping hot Angel Haze plays a sold out show at Hoxton Bar Kitchen. Kyla La Grange plays her biggest headline gig to date on Tuesday night, in support of recent debut album Ashes – those heading there might want to take note of the aftershow party at nearby Surya. Savages play two nights at Electrowerkz, on Wednesday and Thursday, off the back of their recent Jools Holland appearance and continued critical acclaim. Those in proximity to West London could do worse than to go and check out WALL. on Thursday evening at Notting Hill Arts Club for the inaugural Black Cab Sessions night there. The weekend, for once, has notable gigs happening – Manchester’s Shinies play Birthdays on Saturday evening, and Red Kite play a free entry show at Proud on Sunday.
