The Losing Touch had an accomplished debut year in 2019, having played sold-out gigs in Liverpool, Leeds and in their hometown of Barnsley twice. The band released their debut EP, entitled ‘Midnight Again’ on October 17th to much praise, described as a ‘perfect blend between Arcade Fire and Elbow’. Lead single ‘There Must Be More’ received plays on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6 Music Introducing show and Janice Long’s BBC Radio Wales show who said “just so good, can’t wait to hear more!”
Formed by long term friends and collaborators James Gilroy and Nevyn Stevenson, The Losing Touch take influences from everything from The Pogues to Nick Cave and Doves to Tom Waits. Their songs span stories of determination, love, death, pain, happiness and all other universal truths. Gilroy provides the lead vocals and Stevenson the lead guitar, the pair recruited Ben Scarff on drums, Callan Mellor on bass and Liam Brown on keys.
2020 begins with new single ‘Through the Night’, released digitally via AWAL on Friday 13th March. Listen – BELOW:
The Losing Touch play Barnsley (17.03), Sheffield (18.03), Leeds (04.04) and Manchester (05.04) in live shows described as “ethereal, pounding and catchy as fuck throughout”
