We are few days away from our first proper musical showcase at the legendary Nambucca venue in London. We truly can`t wait to see the amazing Tiger Mimic and Memes and this band – Lower Loveday. Ladies and gentlemen – we had a pleasure to meet them a year ago and had amazing time speaking to the band. Now we sat down (quickly) with Lower Loveday`s frontman Mark Washington and the band`s drummer Tom Garbett for a refresher. And we had few things to ask them! So read on and check out the band`s new banger of a single.
You can read our old interview with the band here:
We have spoken to the band exactly one year ago. A lot has changed in Lower Loveday – including a new member. Please introduce your new bassist to the readers of Indieterria.
Mark Washington (Lower Loveday): Yes, that year really has flown by and a lot has happened! Our new bassist is Ben Gillman from Worcester (West Midlands). He’s an excellent talent who’s played with a few bands in the area before joining us in December last year.
In March, you have released a new single entitled “Fire That Burns Inside”. Can you tell us what the song is about?
Tom Garbett: The song is all about a relationship struggle that I was having at that time and its summarising what I was feeling. I was left in a rather awkward situation that was really hard to deal with so I decided to put my feelings down into a song. It is brutally honest in that respect. So in general it is a relationship conundrum I would say!
The song is promoted by a very interesting video. You show some fabulous dance moves and very colourful outfits. Who directed it and how do you remember working on the set?
Mark Washington: Ah thanks very much! We had a lot of fun and managed to get it all shot in a day! We choreographed the dance ourselves which you can probably tell from the moves but we wanted to get people laughing and really enjoying the video as well as the song. It really had an amazing reaction! The video was brilliantly filmed and edited by Ben Parry at Indy Motion who are local to us in Evesham.
You are keeping a busy touring schedule. On April 27th you play iconic London venue Nambucca with Tiger Mimic and Memes, then on May 4th you return to O2 Institute in Birmingham to play with Open Arms. What can we expect from your live performances?
Mark Washington: We’re really looking forward to these shows! You can expect lot of energy and good vibes a lot like our recent music video. We get the crowd involved, get them moving and try to get them to join in with the dancing and make sure they have a smile on their face too!
We heard that you are also looking to play more shows in the North. Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds are being mentioned as possible destinations. If any of the Northern promoters want to get in touch with you, what do they need to do?
Mark Washington: Yes we have quite a few fans asking us to play further north than we have before! Promoters can reach out to us on any of our social media but the best way would be to send us an email directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org

All right – enough fan girling here. Lower Loveday are officially going places and to miss them would be foolish. We will see ya at Nambucca.
