Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Eclectic post-punk alternative pop
Most recent release, Nerve Up (2010)
Delightfully energetic pop with a retro-80s flavour. Julie Campbell has a powerful raspy voice for this lively, dance-y sound, but can also pull off the blues-y ending track on Nerve Up gorgeously. Musically Lonelady is like B-52's in the guitar sound, like the sparseness of Wire and Gang of Four. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Nerve Up is her debut
Nerve Up (2010)
Nerve Up (2010)
Julie Campbell and Guy Fixsen
Loved this from the first time I heard the first single, "Immaterial." While the music does harken back to post-punk 1980s pop it's distinctively contemporary, and though there are a couple of moments that I wouldn't have been surprised to hear on a Dalbello album (including one total doppelganger moment) it feels highly individual. Lively and unforgettable. No one else is quite doing what she is right now, and I can heardly wait to hear what she does next. (Neile)
