London newcomers CALVA LOUISE announce the arrival of their eagerly anticipated debut album Rhinoceros, due for release 1st February via Modern Sky Records.
Having already spawned lead singles Outrageous and I Heard A Cry, the trio continue to receive widespread acclaim throughout the online community (The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Dork) and across the airwaves (BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Radio X) with these early glimpses of their glistening potential.
Flourishing within London’s thriving punk scene since their formative days, the band’s (one part Venezuelan, one part Māori and another part English) tenacious live reputation has already earned them tour supports alongside Spring King and Anteros, in addition to Albert Hammond Jr and an upcoming UK tour with The Blinders.
Discussing their upcoming full-length release, the three-piece stated: “Our debut album is called Rhinoceros, in reference to a particular aspect of the work of Eugène Ionesco. In the lyrics of these ten songs we show our perception as young people, partly foreigners, who try to fit in and belong to something and somewhere in this globalized world. However, we have realised that our greatest motivation is the challenge of adventure, of penetrating into the unknown, and being authentic allows us to feel free to follow our own path, without ceasing to belong to this world, which is the reality”.
Produced by Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Goat Girl) and mixed by Tom Longworth (Catholic Action, The Vryll Society), Calva Louise’s Rhinoceros is out 1st February via Modern Sky Records and will be available on all digital platforms (pre-order here).
CALVA LOUISE launch their pulsating new anthem I Heard A Cry, offering another glimpse of the trio’s unbridled potential ahead of their debut album release.
Having developed a fierce live reputation within London’s flourishing punk scene, the chaotic garage rockers have since earned support slots alongside the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, Spring King and Anteros and will be heading off on tour with label-mates The Blinders later this autumn.
In their newest cut, two minutes of boundless energy showcasing a band brimming with potential, the three-piece lay down a real marker and reinforce why they’ve received extensive backing throughout the online community (Clash, Dork) and across the airwaves (BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Radio X).
Discussing their upcoming release, the outfit stated: “I Heard A Cry deals with the misinformation we often feel regarding what’s happening elsewhere in the world. But at the same time, it’s about the will of many people who are trying to inform themselves”.
Produced by Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Goat Girl) and mixed by Tom Longworth (Catholic Action, The Vryll Society), Calva Louise’s I Heard A Cry is out now via Modern Sky Records and available on all digital platforms.
