Single Review: Lighthouse – “Brown Bottle Flu / Loaded”

Emerging from London’s iconic and ever-growing indie music scene, Lighthouse’s latest double A side single release is a firm example of their strong sound and potential.

“Brown Bottle Flu / Loaded” was recorded upon Lightship 95 in East London by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines/Peace.) Released via the upcoming Derelict Art Records, both singles are catchy and demonstrative of an obvious guitar based sound.

Attwell’s influences can been seen in both singles through thier technical production however, what shines most is the bands obvious use of catchy guitar solo’s and instantly recognisable chorus. This is most evident in “Brown Bottle Flu,” the first of the two singles. Most recognisable for its opening guitar riffs, the single is a good example of the band’s huge potential and talent.

Lighthouse have already amassed a huge repertoire of live performances in their relatively short history. Most prominent is their regular performances across London, they most recently headlined Camden’s ‘Welcome To The Monkey House’ event, a night at the Black Heart hosted by Sisteray – another of London’s most proactive touring bands.

“Loaded” continues to build upon a similar sound to the first with guitar solo’s resembling a hybrid amalgamation of Palma Violets and Arctic Monkeys references, albeit in a positive way. “Loaded” is perhaps most prominent in the live setting, with it’s echoing guitar chords and strong verse creating a heavy, dramatic sound.

Considering their relative infancy we can still expect much more from Lighthouse in terms of musical releases, there’s sure to be many more singles and EP’s penned in for future release. “Brown Bottle Flu / Loaded” is a strong example of their sound, a firm assertion that Lighthouse are a name to be reckoned with.
