Since storming ONBlackheath music festival in 2018, Louis & the Shakes, have continued to drive their unique sound across the London music scene.
Their low-fidelity approach to recording and performing blends indie rock with the subtle influences from the nomadic gun-slinging cowboys of the ‘Old West’ genre. This Western inspired sound is undeniably distinctive, fronted by Louis’ unique characteristics on vocals and supported by the fierce tremolo of the guitar and the power of the rolling sound of the drums.
The London based quartet stamped their mark at the beginning of 2020, releasing their infectious single ‘Snake Hips,’ which instantly gained national radio play (Radio X & BBC Introducing) and media syncs.
2021 sees the launch of their debut album ‘How Badly Do You Want It?’ – 12 tracks of pure passion, true grit and beauty.
"Classic gig rock drums and lashing guitars back the slick croon of their frontman, as he shakes his Arctic Monkeys-influenced arse through three-minutes of desert rock mating calls.”
"Out of over 600 entries we chose Louis And The Shakes to perform at Rewired Festival"
