LONGFELLOW SCORE A & R WORLDWIDE'S VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Our favourite South London Alt-poppers Longfellow have had their quite remarkable video for the current 'Medic' single heralded as VIDEO OF THE WEEK from those nice folk at A & R WORLDWIDE. Coming on the back of lists at 6 Music and Radio 2 here is further proof (if you need it) that Longfellow are making all the right moves as 2015 swings into action. Their headline show at London's Borderline on 26th February is all set to be one of those gigs.
A&R WORLDWIDE’S "VIDEO OF THE WEEK" – LONGFELLOW
South London’s Longfellow consists of Owen James Lloyd (vocals), James Thomas (guitar), Ali Hetherington (keyboards), Lewis Fowler (bass) and Tom Warhurst (drums) who create melodically charged alt pop. They invaded the UK’s airwaves with their singles “Siamese Lover,” which was supported at radio by the likes of Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 and Jo Whiley on Radio 2 and “Kiss-Hug-Make Up” which was included on the Radio 2 playlist for three weeks, which led to a special Fierce Panda X-Posure show for Xfm’s John Kennedy last May. As Longfellow gets closer to the launch of their new EP in April, they’ve unleashed the new single “Medic.” The song has appeared on the playlists of Xfm, Radio 2 and 6, which is quite the accomplishment for an unsigned band. The video clip is nothing short of amazing with the animation and positive story. Longfellow has upcoming gigs in London at The Social tomorrow night and at The Borderline on February 26th. Watch the clip for “Medic” HERE and contact Simon Williams of Fierce Panda at firstname.lastname@example.org for available opportunities, as Longfellow is available for signing, publishing and synch opportunities worldwide.
