Debut single ‘Bleed On Me‘ encapsulates that brooding terror in its Misfits-by-Nirvana judders and yelps, a dark, sinister but exhilarating introduction to a very promising new band.
A screaming riot of killer tunes, twisted guitars and pulsating bass with dirty synths and disco-punk beats stolen from the gutter provinces. 'Lorca take the electro-punk sleaze image and give it a much needed punch; crashing shimmering guitars and digital sorcery into devilish rock'n'roll with starling effect.
