Single Review - Lulu & The Lampshades - Feet to the Sky - Noize Makes Enemies

Lulu & The Lampshades are a quirky playful brand of folk pop with a wholly loveable musical style that is both rich in fun and highly addictive melodies.

Their debut single “Feet to the Sky” reveals their desire to escape. To take a gutsy spontaneous step back from everything that is familiar and throw themselves into the unknown; something that the joining of sweet indie melody tunes with poignant, smart lyrics like /Shake me from the things I think me whole/ leave the listener wishing that they could runaway with them too.

With glottal stops aplenty, their informal narrative talking-meets-singing vocal style bounces along upbeat backing in a way that instantly draws likely comparisons to Laura Marling, Those Dancing Days and most notably, Peggy Sue and The Pirates, the latter of which they have frequently shared a stage with.

As the cooler nights draw in, Lulu & The Lampshades’ quirky style of sunshine folk alongside handclapping and sharp lyrics, bring welcomed warmth to ears all over London Town this Autumn, not to mention a great deal of anticipation for the follow up from this exciting new band.
