London based, psych/ electronic punk outfit, Legpuppy have recently announced an intoxicating collaborative single release titled, ’Secret Friend’ with the incredible Swedish, Grammy award-winning, electro-pop artist, Josefin Öhrn. The single is set for release February 14th and the band is currently working on shooting a music video to accompany this forthcoming single, which has been extracted from Legpuppy’s forthcoming album, There’s No Rock Stars, due for a summer release.
I recently spoke to the lead protagonist of Legpuppy, Darren Laurence at a live show in Glasgow, Scotland, In which I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing him for UK Entertainments website, Louderthanwar.
Within the interview Darren casts light onto what Legpuppy means to him, what direction he is going in creatively, the inspirations behind the songs for both past and recent material, recent European shows, where he places Legpuppy within the music industry, as well as talking about forthcoming summer shows and much more.
It was a very funny, insightful interview, so please keep an eye over at Louder for that publication! Revel also has a fantastic batch of photos from their live show over on Gobophotography/Revel Rousers Facebook social media page for your viewing pleasure.
Just in case some of you may not know, Josefin Öhrn has a band called, The Liberation, combining psychedelic rock and pop with colourful elements from countless other genres to create a distinctive sound. Her music is experimental and hypnotic and is just waiting to win you over. If you are not familiar with her works, I recommend you check out her albums, Horse Dance, Mirage and Sacred Dreams. Darren expressed in his interview that this particular collaboration is such a big deal for Legpuppy and that they are extremely excited about this forthcoming single release.
Please tune into the radio edit version of the single below on the following.
Also, Revel Rousers managed to capture some footage of Legpuppy at Glasgow’s The Old Hairdressers. They were a challenge to capture in the dark, and the sound is a little blown out, but i did my best to capture and deliver a snippet of their allconsuming vibration. I hope you appreciate.
