Description

On June 11th 2013 Longfellow played their debut show at the Highbury Buffalo Bar for Club Fandango. The subsequent trio of singles were ''Gabrielle'' (on their own label), ''Siamese Lover (on Label Fandango) and Kiss-Hug-Make Up (on fierce panda). Prelude throws in the b-sides to all the singles (May The Light, The Convent and Wolf Cry respectively), adds a couple of band favourites in Polaroid and Lullaby and gets ready to crumble. For these are thoroughly sensitive souls, often described as epic purveyors of melodically charged alt.pop. With Longfellow its all about art-on-sleeve emoting, where passion outwits fashion and no chorus is ever knowingly undersold. Selected to play 2014's SXSW by the BBC Introducing team, with an Austin showcase alongside Thumpers, Royal Blood and Public Service Broadcasting a show which led directly to an American release for this Prelude mini-album. And then third single Kiss-Hug-Make Up saw the band multitasking to a manic degree, hitching up to the Radio 2 playlist for three weeks leading up to a special Fierce Panda X-posure show for Xfms John Kennedy at Camden Barfly on May 20th.
