Like some of Scotland’s most successful acts in recent years, including Calvin Harris and Emily Sandé, Love Sick have launched their career by building a fanbase off their own turf, including appearances at The Great Escape in Brighton and Liverpool Sound City. But they’ve brought it back home, appearing at Loopallu Festival on Friday and Tenement Trail last night.
Boasting a contemporary pop sound with definite international appeal, the duo formed after meeting at a Christmas party hosted by the call centre where they worked. Their debut release, Bullet, soon followed and has clocked up over a million streams on Spotify, most from listeners in London, Los Angeles, Dublin and Berlin.
Their latest track, Fever, from the forthcoming EP released on Brixton label Aesop in mid-November, will be followed by another opportunity to check them out in their native Glasgow on 27 November – perhaps the last in such an intimate setting. www.soundcloud.com/thisislovesick
