Lloyd’s House Release New Single
“In Houses”

Take From New EP
The Masochist
Out 20th October 2023

on Wish Fulfillment Press

Glasgow based alt-pop aficionado’s, Lloyd’s House release the second single “In Houses” from their new EP,  The Masochist, out 20th October on Wish Fulfillment Press  – the DIY Art House Publishing Platform set up in 2016 by Phillip Jon Taylor from Scottish band, PAWS.  Lloyd’s House is the eccentric pop brainchild of Lloyd Ledingham who wraps a warped lens around the world that surrounds him. The result is a sometimes surreal, but always intensely personal reflection of his reality, mapped against an eclectic musical backdrop. Pre-order EP HERE

“In Houses” explores the idea of the secret lives we all live behind closed doors. Lloyd says, “We wanted to show how deceiving people can be, how you never really know what’s going on in someone’s head.”  He adds “It’s that eerie feeling you get when you know someone’s holding back from telling you something, when you know they’re not being truthful.”  Fast and unforgiving, “In Houses” is probably the heaviest track of the record.”

“In Houses” commences with this fierce beat, bold bass line and brash introduction to this immense energy and abrasive yet melodious movement. Lloyd’s House showcases its addictive appeal from the start of this high-octane ensemble. The vocal notes ooze across the ferocious instrumentation, joined with additional melodies to elevate the dynamic vocal tones. The track meanders through this shifting tempo, big breakdowns and experimental passages. The outfit’s immense power blazes through the soundscape with the addition of daring textures and sonically crushing modulation. The band bring pop hooks to aggressive crescendos, and electronic chaos to calmer beats, their delivery consumes you. A mammoth outfit with equally mammoth musical creations.

This track propels the outfit to this addictive status, Lloyd’s House just crushed the release to ensure all listeners are moved to a trance through their crucial vision.

The Masochist was recorded and produced by Chris McCrory(Catholic Action) at Greendoor Studios in Glasgow, and mastered by Phillip Shaw Bova (Andy Shauf, Father John Misty, Angel Olsen). The new EP fully embeds big pop elements to the band’s indie rock songwriting, finding the sweet spot between 90s Kerrang TV and Kylie Minogue, while nodding to sonic visionaries such as Perfume Genius and Spirit of the Beehive.

Lloyd’s House released their first EP, We Could Be Friends and debut self-titled album in 2021, both on Corkscrew Records.

Lloyd’s House will be playing a free in-store show at Mono, Glasgow on 20th October. They will also be supporting PAWS on 13th December at London, Sebright Arms.
