Scuzzy Indie-Rock Trio Calva Louise Visit Brighton To Play Tracks From Forthcoming Debut Album

Laying down a firm marker within London's raucous punk scene over the last couple of years, rising trio of Calva Louise have since earned support slots alongside the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, Spring King and Anteros and recently finished an extensive UK tour with label-mates The Blinders.

In their trademark anthemic style, new single Tug Of War encapsulates everything that's come to be expected of the band.

The track is the third release from their debut album Rhinoceros, due out early next year. 

Silky guitar work, biting vocals and infectious, chaotic riffage takes centre stage and only adds to their growing reputation heading into next year"s debut LP release.

Discussing the video, Jess (guitar/vocals) said: 

"We feel like in any kind of relationship there are unwritten rules everybody should follow, and that becomes a constant tug of war, dealing with unnecessary pressure.


"If everybody could have a complimentary point of view, then that tug of war could be a fun game where there are no set rules".

Jess, who is joined by Alizon (bass/vocals) and Ben (drums/vocals), is based in Camden, and are regulars at The Roundhouse's rehearsal spaces which are free to use for under 25-year-olds. 

When they are not rehearsing Calva Louise are out on the road and will soon be playing at The Prince Albert, Brighton, playing tracks from Rhinoceros, which is available to pre-order now.
