Following their totally independent debut release, ‘Run & Hide’, and having amassed over 100,000 combined streams, Scottish quartet The Lutras return with eagerly awaited follow-up ‘Vari’; plus a stripped-back piano demo of live favourite ‘Times We Had’ digitally released on 2nd October 2019.
Produced by Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic, Fatherson), Vari is a soulful, folklore inspired rock number where the protagonist tussles with infatuation, songwriter and bassist Danny explains, “it’s a personal song for the hopeless romantics and day-dreamers. For the people who lust for longing, love and affection – put that in yer pipe, Mozart”. Drawing on their mutual love of 60’s & 70’s rock ‘n’ roll and big pop choruses complemented by Rintoul’s production, The Lutras cleverly forge a timeless record.
In the past 12 months, The Lutras have twice sold out hometown headline shows at the 350 capacity Venue in Dumfries, alongside rapturous performances at Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms and Glasgow’s iconic King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, firmly cementing the foursome as one of Scotland’s most-hotly tipped new bands. Now, armed with a new release and a ferocious live set, The Lutras are set to make their mark across the U.K., having announced a tour in association with legendary club night This Feeling, plus a series of dates up and down the isles.
