Cheshire four-piece The Luka State are back and showcasing their metronome-like rhythm section on their new, uptempo tune ‘Bury Me’.
The Luka State are Conrad Ellis (voice, guitar), Sam Bell (bass, voice), Jake Barnabas (drums) and Lewis Pusey (guitars) and they hail from Winsford. Famous for its salt mine, the town also lies halfway between Liverpool and Manchester where music and football are the aspirations of every child.
New single ‘Bury Me’ is a two chord thrash of a song and an honest celebration of the feeling of lust and the primal urge when we fancy someone. Speaking of the track, lead vocalist Conrad says, “‘Bury Me’ is about indulging that lust. I think it should be celebrated and not a taboo subject like it is for some people.”
Listen to ‘Bury Me’ by The Luka State now on the Official Fantasy Premier League Playlist on Spotify.
‘Bury Me’ was recorded at The Pool, Bermondsey (Oasis, Bloc Party, Nick Cave), produced by Northern up-and-comer Jamie Evans and mixed by Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, U2). It was the last song recorded for their upcoming second album, with Conrad’s blistering vocal performance laid down in one take with no edits, the final piece in the jigsaw.
The area they grew up is a heavy influence for their lyrics, as Conrad states, “Our town breeds boredom and despair”. Nevertheless, the band transform that into a working class vigour in the music they write, with nods to the early work of The Clash and The Jam.
The Luka State’s foundation lies at a youth club where Conrad and Sam first met at the age of twelve, which now serves as their rehearsal space. There is nothing manufactured about this band, they are here to tell frank and honest stories. With past work earning them plaudits in mainstream publications and on radio alike, the four-piece are here to show they are in it for the long-haul.
