Duo Matthew Cooper and David Startin from Nottingham are the masterminds behind ‘I Am Lono’. Creating dark, uncompromisingly bold music, and having only been together just over a year, already have fans at BBC 6 Music, including Steve Lamacq and Dean Jackson from The Beat.
Their new AA single ‘Too Bright/’Simone’ is due for release on the 17th March. Their minimalistic style in ‘Too Bright’, features Matthew’s resounding vocals which contrast with the flagrant sound of the keyboard. In the band’s own words ‘Too Bright‘ is about the deluded expectations and constant diversions of a young man’s thoughts, who has realised that his expectation of how things would turn out is not necessarily the way things will be’
During the last twelve months I Am Lono have supported the likes of The Savages and Palma Violets, as well as opening the Dot to Dot Festival.
