LOVE SICK arrive like a shot to the heart with their debut track ‘Bullet’.

 

Few would believe how a serendipitous series of events helped create LOVE SICK. A boy-girl duo from Scotland who’s musical meeting of minds lead to the debut single ‘Bullet’. It’s a twisted love song – an ode to both heartbreak and obsession which will earworm its way into your head…and your heart. 

 

Both Scottish born and bred – Shaun in Glasgow, and Julie in Stirling – the pair first met whist working for the same life insurance call center, albeit in their respective cities. Their first meeting occurred at their work’s Christmas party when Julie drunkenly let slip she had always wanted to be a singer. Under a second wave of cosmic happenstance, they then bumped into each other again a few weeks later at a Glasgow train station.

 

Conversations quickly picked up from where they left off at the party and once again their mutual obsession with music came to the fore. While Shaun was fixated on 50’s and 60’s, Dylan’s lyricism and The Beatles’ hooks, Julie was in love with female pop stars of the here and now – Lana Del Ray, Florence and of course, Amy Winehouse. Numbers were exchanged and pretty swiftly, they were locked away in Shaun’s homemade studio. Already a producer, Shaun was excited to have found the perfect vocalist and collaborator to bounce ideas off.

 

‘Bullet’ looks set to launch the career of this promising young pop duo with force.

he Little Kicks are a 4 piece band based in Scotland who have a reputation for their own distinctive brand of heartfelt electronic indie rock music. The band have a new record entitled “Shake Off Your Troubles” which is out now!

The band’s last album, “Put Your Love In Front Of Me” (released in late 2013) was part funded by Creative Scotland and met with critical acclaim both in the UK and further afield in Europe. Several album tracks including the lead single “Girl” and it’s B-side (“a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”) have enjoyed national radio airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio Scotland and XFM. Following the album’s release the band completed three successful headline tours of the UK & Europe to a great response and also toured as main support for Public Service Broadcasting and We Were Promised Jetpacks in the UK.

Previously to “Put Your Love In Front Of Me”, the band’s debut album “Boxing Clever” was released in June 2009 and the bands second album release “The Little Kicks” was released on the 28th November 2011. Both releases received great critical acclaim in the UK music press and also found an audience further afield by being featured on several European and American blog and online radio sites.

The NME have said the band “produce a nice line in brittle funk alongside pocket epics they should be proud of” and IsThisMusic magazine have awarded each of the bands albums 4****/ 5 upon release. In the printed press The Scotsman named The Little Kicks as a “Band of the Year” and Q Magazine named the band as one of “Ten Scottish Bands You Maybe Haven’t Heard Of But Should”. The band have also previously been nominated as a finalist in the Best Live Act category in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards (Sama’s).

As well as touring in the UK and playing in Europe and Japan the band has enjoyed sharing stages with the likes of Foals, The Vaccines, Frightened Rabbit, Twilight Sad, Twin Atlantic, Maximo Park, Mystery Jets, Errors, Kooks, Editors, Wild Nothing, Maccabees and many more. The band has also performed at many of Scotland’s major music festivals including T In The Park, Belladrum, Insider, Brew At The Bog, Electric Fields, Solus, Kelburn Garden Party, Insider and many more.
