Luv Luv Luv presents three bands: Reuben And The Dark is the project borne from songwriter/vocalist Reuben Bullock's reflection on the world. Bullock makes chilling, emotive folk and soul driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy. Reuben and the Dark has emerged organically from Canada's stellar independent scene on the strength of often anthemic compositions that translate the language of emotion into song with haunting clarity. The celebrated debut album, Funeral Sky, received widespread critical praise and earned a passionate audience through incessant touring and the live fivepiece's enchanting performances The Blueprint Blue line up of Elliot Hayward, Melissa Rigby and Huw Webb formed in 2013 when Hayward discovered that Rigby and Webb shared a mutual love of The Grateful Dead, Neil Young, and Jackson Browne. Their manifesto is simple; beautifully crafted melodies, heartfelt story telling and a classic authentic sound. Whilst Blueprint Blue's musical influences are rare in the contemporary music sound of the day, they're undeterred and take their inspirations to craft something very special indeed. The Bat Made up of three members Simon Pierce (Circuits) Tom Wylds (King Charles) Christopher Hayden (Florence & the machine) Bringing in influences from artists such as Bowie, Cave, Cohen and the Pixies, whilst Laid back on a musical bed of emotion, The Bat songs will leave you feeling moved by openness and honesty of Pierces vocals. Overlaying the lyrics of bleak tales of love and despair onto the sounds of dark and moving instrumentation, the Bat still manage to give a feeling of hope and elation.
