With observational and often surreal lyrics about life The Lovely Eggs have a powerful stripped down sound: one vintage guitar amp, one Big Muff distortion pedal, a guitar and a drum kit.
They have produced five albums. The latest, This Is Eggland, was produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Mogwai, MGMT, Tame Impala) at his studio in upstate New York. It was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim.
Boasting 5- and 4-star reviews in the national press (including The Independent, Record Collector, Louder Than War, Shindig and Morning Star), the album went straight to Number 9 in the independent album charts. Uncut Magazine described it as ‘Exhilarating and trashy’, the Guardian as ‘marvellous’, plus ‘yes, that good!’ from The Quietus and ‘unrelenting’ from Pitchfork.
Their recent single Wiggy Giggy saw them added to the BBC 6 Music Playlist and the track received massive support from DJs across the board at BBC 6 Music – including This is Eggland being declared Album of The Day.
In February the pair headed out on a 10-date sold out tour of the UK with poet and comedian Phill Jupitus, producing their very own tour zine (to accompany the new album) and playing rammed chaotic shows to an army of growing fans.
The Lovely Eggs are one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground Music Scene. Egg-mania is here! Welcome to their world. This Is Eggland!
