Today, our new music spotlight is on Calva Louise
Line-up: Jess Allanic (vocals, guitar), Alizon Taho (bass, backing vox), Ben Parker (drums, backing vox).
About: Calva Louise have unveiled their explosive new single ‘Belicoso’. Taken from their upcoming EP ‘Interlude for the Borderline Unsettled’, the band here blend English and Spanish on a playful new track that roughly translates as “lairy”, and was produced by Spring King’s Tarek Musa. Coming together from Venezuela, France and New Zealand, the band have been tearing up the UK airwaves with support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Jack Saunders and Abbie McCarthy, BBC Radio 6’s Steve Lamacq, Shaun Keaveny and the legendary Iggy Pop, BBC Radio 4’s Front Row, Radio X’s John Kennedy, as well as Communion presents, and Amazing Radio.
What Hidden Herd say: Calva Louise return with a gritty, off-kilter track full of their trademark punch and flair. With the track’s title roughly translating as ‘lairy’, the trio here deliver in droves.
