In a scene cluttered with New Wave and Post Punk resurgence, The Lotts deliver a breath of fresh “Psyche-Garage” air to the circuit. The four-piece from Warrington, although appearing youthful, are delivering a raucous explosion of feedback laden noise reminiscent of early Stooges and bearing a maturity often coupled with this type of on-stage confidence. They are certainly a band to catch live. The Lotts, consisting of Henry Buchanan (guitar/vocals), Adam Bridge (guitar), Jamie Evans (bass), Joel Norton (drums) have recently followed up their debut EP with the single, ‘I’ll Get Round to It’ featuring B-side, ‘Mouth’ as well as having recorded new material at the famous Rockfield Studios in Wales. On first listen to the new single, you would be forgiven for mistaking the guitar intro for a classic Hives track but these boys are certainly no ‘one trick ponies.’ Proof? The B-Side is more akin to the likes of Fat White Family or Warmduscher with toned down, droned out vocals from Henry accompanied by Joel’s harsh, pulsating drums which highlights the band’s versatility at such a tender age. The Warrington group have only been together for slightly over a year but there is something about The Lotts defining them from their peers. They are technical without being rigid, they are excitable without being arrogant. It seems obvious that the band are perfectly placed and all-embracing for what is certain to be a massive year ahead for them.
