Born in Barcelona the summer of 1998, LULALONG is a pink-haired indie rock singer/songwriter who bought a one-way ticket to London when she turned 18 and never looked back. After finding her place in the big city by busking during the day and serving margaritas by night, LULALONG released her first single Black Vespa in January 2019.
Her debut EP Lovers I Don't Love (released 27th June 2019) is a concept album about falling in and out of love, long nights in a big city and everything that comes with living (and loving) there.
LULALONG is currently working on new music set to be released in April 2020.
GET TO KNOW THE BAND:
Tosh has been playing drums and percussion since he was 10; he likes playing rock, funk, reggae and ska. He listens to pretty much everything, but some of his inspirations are Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Anderson .Paak, Arctic Monkeys, System of a Down and many more.
In his free time he likes to travel and visit new places, as well as going to gigs. His biggest passion besides music is adrenaline sports. He loves riding his bike on track days every now and then, to get that adrenaline dose he can only get on stage otherwise.
Fun fact about him: Once he managed to break his arm without realising and continued partying.
Umar has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old. Jimi Hendrix was his biggest inspiration as a teenager; however, in more recent years he started listening to Jeff Buckley’s music and was subsequently inspired to start singing. He loves composing, songwriting and playing in hot, crowded venues with cool stage lighting.
When he is not doing music he likes to keep fit, having competed in boxing and football. At present he is currently training for his first Brazilian JiuJitsu tournament. Music is his bae.
Fun fact about him: One of his front teeth is fake, because someone accidentally punched half his tooth out in a boxing drill
Calum has been playing guitar for 8 years now within a variety of genres. His favourite bands are Iron Maiden, Nirvana, The Beach Boys and Tijuana Panthers.
Outside of music, he really loves art and football.
He is a big fan of Japanese traditional art and Salvador Dalí. He also used to play semi-professional football for Everton FC in Kuwait, where he lived for 5 years.
Fun fact about him: While sustaining no injuries, technically he has been shot in the head while working at a clay pigeon shooting range.
Kieran recently moved to London to pursue his music career. He has been playing for about 4 years now in a variety of genres, but rock music has his heart. His favourite bands are Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and Royal Blood. These guys are his idols and he aspires to be at least half as good as them.
He is also a massive football fan and loves Celtic F.C, who according to him are the greatest team on earth. He is also a big comic book fan, in particular Batman comics because let’s be honest… he’s the coolest.
Fun fact about him: Once he accidentally joined Extinction Rebellion because he thought it was an outside bar.
