(New York, NY – March 25, 2021) — UK alt-pop band LARRY PINK THE HUMAN are excited to share their new track “ELEVEN11_GTR_SONG” a thumping statement of intent in the form of hook-heavy power pop released via their own Brainsoup label distributed via Sony Music’s The Orchard. CLICK HERE to watch the accompanying music video for the track.
“ELEVEN11_GTR_SONG” is an anthemic shot of vulnerability that lays its foundations upon the truism that all of us are reliant upon the support of those around us; a declaration of faith in humanity at a time when the world feels more polarized than ever before.
“If the last year has shown us anything it’s that we can live without many things, but to be away from our closest companions is the biggest challenge of all,” shares duo LARRY PINK THE HUMAN on their new song. “We wanted to write about the ones that are with us and the ones that are not, and show how much we appreciate them. When it’s all said and done, everybody needs someone.”
LARRY PINK THE HUMAN are Mercury Prize-nominated songwriter/guitarist Laurie Vincent (of Slaves) and award-winning producer Jolyon Thomas (Kendrick Lamar, U2, Royal Blood). The project is a creative avenue without confines, permitting Laurie and Jolyon to venture into limitless sonic territories, whilst retaining cohesion throughout the catalogue: from contemplative debut single “LOVE YOU, BYE.,” to IDLES collaboration “Wasted days (Inbetweens)“, via the lofty reverb of “MIGHT DELETE LATER.”
With LARRY PINK THE HUMAN still in its infancy, the duo has already explored the realms of pop-punk, electronic indie and artpop, through Laurie’s ambitious songwriting and Jolyon’s production chops. The collection of songs that would evolve to become LPTH’s repertoire were written by Laurie during a time of deep personal loss, which he then presented to producer Jolyon Thomas.
Jolyon, whose previous production credits include Kendrick Lamar’s Damn LP, as well as albums with U2 and Royal Blood (with whom he won 2018’s MPG Breakthrough Producer of the Year), elevated these heartfelt tracks into accomplished, technicoloured anthems.As one-half of the duo Slaves, which he formed alongside his childhood friend Isaac Holman, Laurie has picked up a Mercury Prize nomination and collaborated with the likes of Slowthai, Skepta and Gorillaz.
Laurie is an established visual artist, photographer and clothing designer, working with the likes of Lazy Oaf, Cheap Monday and Vans on collaborative ranges. He also heads his own clothing label: Young Lovers Club
LARRY PINK THE HUMAN is an ideal that sits not in parallel to the duo’s other artistic endeavours, but as a solid component in a multifaceted output of creativity. “Without music, I wouldn’t do the art,” Laurie explained during a past exhibition. “It’s all been a journey in learning how to mould the two together and grow as a pair.”
A full-time father of two, Laurie has spoken eloquently on the topic of mental health in music to the likes of War Child, Help Musicians and BBC Introducing.
