Please scream an ear-piercing “hiyaaaaa!" at Julie, Suse and Michael - for they are TUFF LOVE, the latest addition to the Lost Map roster, and they welcome such exuberant noise.
Tuff Love are the sound of pure summer; dazzling, sun-streaked guitar pop, with soft, slow burning melodies, and big smiling harmonies. We’ve been listening to them non-stop over the past few months, and have fallen oh-so-deeply in love with their songs, which have kept the winter chill at bay. You might recognise Suse, for she also plays bass with fellow Lost Mappers, Monoganon. When Tuff Love played our Christmas Baubles show last month, they immediately felt like part of the family - so we’re really chuffed to have them all on board.
