North London singer, songwriter and storyteller Louis Dunford has shared a new track Regretamine, which follows his debut single and video London’s Requiem released last month. He has also announced the release of his debut project The Morland EP on 15th January.
Following the release of the EP, Louis has announced he will perform a socially distanced live gig on Friday 29th January at London’s Lafayette, which follows his Communion live streamed show earlier this month.
With a notebook never too far away, Louis nostalgically writes about his own observations of friends, family and life, always telling stories that need to be told. Using his songs like a journal, his lyrics are often a cathartic release and a way to honestly approach tragedy or share everyday humour through frank storytelling and raw and gritty delivery.
A fan favourite after Louis shared a live version on Instagram, Regretamine is about youth told through honesty and experience. Bringing out a touch of Louis’ humour in its tongue in cheek lyrics, it is a straight up ditty about the joy of getting high with mates before the regret of feeling low. He says;
“I’d probably be stating the obvious if I told you what the song is about… I’ve always written about the experiences me and my mates have had growing up and this is one that makes me (and my mates) laugh.”
Both London’s Requiem and Regretamine may be the first real introduction to Louis Dunford, but his growing fanbase have been supportively following him since being drawn to the emotional depth of his songs when he first shared his music as a way of contemplating life a few years ago. The release of The Morland EP in January, which is affectionately named after Morland Mews in North London where Louis grew up, will mark the first real chapter in Louis musical journey ahead of much more music to come throughout 2021.
Performing live at the end of last year, Louis sold out his first shows straight away and he recently had to postpone upcoming shows at London’s The Slaughtered Lamb due to current events, after selling out all three nights in minutes. He has announced a one-off socially distanced live show on 29th January at Lafayette and tickets are on sale now.
Keep an eye on the name Louis Dunford – just as he himself reflects and gets lost in his lyrics, his refreshing and relatable songs are music for us to lose ourselves in.
