The indie alt-rock quartet RALPH OF LONDON has released a scuzzpapery new single titled “Dotty” on June 19, 2020.
The new single conveys the band’s freshly postulated psyche, as bandleader/vocalist Ralph brings his signature dialect vocals over guitar-attitude jinglejangle and the most giddy & dehydrated synths you’ll hear this side of the Hauts-de-France.
It’s modern pop, but recalls the glory days of the neo-psychedelic Britpop (think Super Furry Animals or Pulp).
Ralph says: “The [new song] is about a king falling in love with somebody completely unattainable and being driven to madness under the shadow of a fading illusion”.
Ralph of London brings a style that was sparked by the British pop groundswell, and propelled into being to become an energetic live band in the north of France. They were formed in 2017, working between London and Lille, after Ralph met a group of musicians from France, with opposing leanings, while visiting London’s Sebright Arms.
The group have brought together conformal instruments to achieve an alchemy that will do anything but conform. Their polychromatic songcraftery brings exquisite integrity of conscience while retaining a reliable sense of whim and wit.
