Now Hear This: The Luka State | Fall In Fall Out

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

252

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The Luka State, one of the U.K.’s most exciting up and coming rock ’n’ roll bands, were brought up on groups such as The Clash and The Jam. Although they’ve been putting out singles since 2013, Fall In Fall Out is their debut album.

Conrad Ellis and bassist Sam Bell met in their local youth club, and have been playing music together since they were just 12 years old. After seeing drummer Jake Barnabas play at a festival and meeting guitarist Lewis Pusey, they knew they had completed the band. Having all grown up in the same small Northwestern town of Winsford, Conrad has explained there’s not much to do there; you either play music or you play football. Despite almost going down the latter route, they chose music and the rest is history.

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the four-piece couldn’t celebrate in the traditional way with an album launch, so they decided to do a different kind of launch by physically sending a copy of their album into space on a weather ballon, along with Lego figurine versions of the band.”
