Indie pop four piece, The Lottery Winners, have spent the best part of the last decade grafting relentlessly, building up a dedicated fan base and a cannon of cast iron hits along the way. Having recently been discovered by Seymour Stein, who famously signed Madonna, The Ramones, The Smiths, Talking Heads, and supported the legend that is Mr. Tom Jones on tour, anticipation is about to reach fever pitch with the release of their self-titled debut album, which drops on March 13th via Modern Sky.
Before that, they unleashed a fan favourite, "21," as a single, complete with a heavy Stone Roses vibe from the opening jangly guitar riff (as noted by Boy George no less) to the proper arms in the air, full-lunged chorus. In this contemporary music scene that can often seem and feel cold and detached, this is a band brimming with heart and personality, and you can hear clearly from the start just how much these guys are having the time of their lives crafting big, anthemic tunes for the masses.
Clearly ones with ambitious plans ahead, The Lottery Winners deserve to be seen on as large a stage as possible, and over the next twelve months have a packed tour schedule including some big UK and European festival appearances over the summer.
