I first found Landores late last year when they posted a sound clip of some weird noise. It wasn’t a song but I was intriuged enough to ‘like’ them on facebook, and thank sweet baby jesus I did, because they’ve now got some beautiful songs which are really very nice.
Formed in 2011, Landores was created by Joe Zoutewelle, Ryan Gorringe, Jay Gibby and Jon Glenister. I’m not 100% but I think that at least one of the members was in band called Escape To Sea, a great band from Brighton that have now sadly stopped making music.
It’s like folk (but not shit-folk) mixed with a poppier/indier side to it that takes it forward and makes in interesting enough to make me listen to their songs on repeat. Here’s their beautiful song Foreign Grounds:
And here’s Bows:
They’ll hopefully be playing live in June but no dates confirmed yet – stay tuned for more info, and hopefully more tunes from these guys!
