Track Of The Day #519: Love L.U.V – You Do Something

LUV
Today’s track comes from London outfit Love L.U.V.,  ‘You Do Something’ is a delightful 60s-esque girl-pop stomp. Laced with Lucy Doyle’s vox, coo’d along by fem backings, that drip with the attitude of The Long Blondes one minute and giddy infatuation the next, this is all hoisted aloft by a crashing jangle/percussive kick that one imagines makes them an entertaining live presence. Little wonder then that Love L.U.V  borrow their name from the immortal spoken word intro to The Shangri-Las classic ‘Give Him A Great Big Kiss.’

 

 

It’s culled from their recent debut double a side ‘You Do Something / Lily Anne’ which was recorded at Sound Savers in Homerton with Henry Withers, the single is available digitally and on limited hand-stamped, hand-numbered 7″ vinyl (100 pressings only) from the band’s bandcamp here: http://loveluvband.bandcamp.com/merch

MAY 20 – THE SHACKLEWELL ARMS, LONDON
MAY 31 – PAPER DRESS, LONDON
JULY 25 – PORT ELIOT FESTIVAL, ST GERMANS
SEP 05 – FESTIVAL NO. 6, PORTMEIRION
