London five-piece Curse Of Lono released their debut album ‘Severed’ on April 7th. The album, which was produced in London by Oli Bayston (Boxed In), followed the band’s self-titled debut EP, released in October 2016, which also formed the soundtrack to ‘Saturday Night’, a short film of inter-connected music videos directed by Alex Walker.
The film recently won Best Music Video at the LA Independent Film Awards, the London Independent Film Awards and Feel The Reel International Film Festival in Glasgow and has made the official selection at the International Music Video Underground in LA and the Sunlight International Film Festival in Moscow.
Founded and fronted by Felix Bechtolsheimer, formerly the singer-guitarist in British roots pioneers Hey Negrita Curse Of Lono formed in early 2015, though the songs on ‘Severed’ were written over a 14-year period.
Lyrically, the songs cover themes including infidelity and sexual jealousy, the death of friends, and Felix’s personal struggle with heroin addiction. “Although ‘Severed’ is a dark record in places, it is not an addiction record,” says Felix. “It’s about growing up enough to be able to share a drink with the ghosts of the past without letting them push you around.”
