Based in Manchester, Calva Louise have been developing a sound that is entirely their own since Jess, Alizon and Ben formed the band in London at the end of 2016.
Their songs are strongly influenced by Latin Rock as well as British and American bands, showing ambitious songwriting and outright guitar riff hooks from Jess, futuristic fuzz bass from Alizon and crushing hybrid drums from Ben.
They performed sold out shows across the UK and the EU, supporting world-class artists like Highly Suspect on their European Tour (abruptly stopped in March 2020), and Albert Hammond Jr. who said about the band: “I was just blown away by their songs and the structure and the push and pull of their music in general”.
Calva Louise's songs, including their debut album, their two independently released EPs and the last two singles released through the American Label FRKST - an imprint of 300 Entertainment run by Johnny Stevens, the front man of the band Highly Suspect - have found heavy rotation across BBC Radio 1 with Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Abbie McCarthy, BBC6 Music with Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Shaun Keaveny and the legendary Iggy Pop, X-posure with John Kennedy, as well as a live session at BBC Maida Vale Studios.
Their single 'Trial' was released last October before 'Nine Lives', a song co-written by Jess and Bobby from Strange Bones that was released on December 4th, 2020.
Calva Louise's new upcoming album produced by Bobby Bentham, will be released this year along with an animated movie depicting the whole story of the album, created, produced and directed by Mescalitas.
