2017 has seen the birth of the new face of rock n roll- Louis Antoniou, entertaining crowds across the UK with his blend of alternative rock and post modern blues.
LETS REWIND- Louis recorded some new materiel late 2016 at the infamous Gizzard Studios in East London. Using analogue equipment and recording processes, Louis shared a space in which music luminaries such as Mark Ronson, Mr Hudson, The Skints, Michael Kiwanuka and Holly Golightly (who featured on Elephant, The White Stripes) have previously laid down tracks. Louis says "these tracks are a new direction. They are a way of me releasing my deepest darkest thoughts on doomed romances and this dystopia Britain we currently live in."
“Bad Apple” is without a doubt the track EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT. It has propelled Louis into the limelight that's for certain. It offers a ridiculously catchy riff and gritty sound, this track entices fans of artists such as Queens of The Stone Age, The White Stripes and The Black Keys a new offering when it comes to the world of Rock and Roll.
“I Don't Want No More Woes’, is the prequel to this exciting two track release. It provides a slower, perhaps more punchy and emotional mood.. Louis is proud of the 'satirically amusing,' music video for single. This is the more bluesy number of the two.
Louis has seen a massive rise in the last year after catching the eyes at YNot Festival. He recently smashed DotoDot and is continuing to pack out venues across London.
There always seems to be a constant stream of young, solo artists trying to build steam in order to breakthrough. Most of it though, is just talk and really just smoke without the fire. However Louis is certainly one to watch.
His seriously outrageous flamboyant performing style, his heart felt tongue in cheek lyrics and crooner vocals continue to mesmerize audiences everywhere . He was highly praised for his lyrics during his Dingwalls Show in Camden recorded for Sky Arts Living.
“These singles are just the beginning. I've got plenty more where that came from."
