“Just beautiful…they’ve done it again.” James Santer, BBC Introducing
Their music combines influences from artists such as Ben Howard, Bonobo, This Is The Kit, Nitin Sawhney, Frank Turner, and Sufjan Stevens. They’ve been championed by the BBC Radio 6 Music as well as playing at Nozstock, Greenbelt and Shambala festivals.
Honest, endearing, and fiercely hopeful, LFTC believe that ‘music is community’ and aim to promote a culture of authenticity where people feel safe to be themselves. From cafés and festivals to book shops and bakeries, this Devon-based duo will play anywhere that people might listen to.
Their debut album Revolution Starts At Home received fantastic reviews and airplay whilst continuing to gain hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and tens of thousands of views on YouTube.
