The Lovely Eggs
This event will take place at EartH Hall.
Indie rockers the Lovely Eggs were formed in 2006 by Holly Ross and David Blackwell. Following the breakup of all-girl punk band Angelica, which Ross fronted between 1994 and 2003, the singer/guitarist was keen to get back into the swing of writing and recording music. Blackwell, a member of psychedelic drone outfit Three Dimensional Tanx, was the obvious choice for Ross to work with, not only because he shared Ross' taste for slightly warped indie, but because the two happened to be married.
Although based in their hometown of Lancaster, England, the Lovely Eggs played their first show in New York before returning to the U.K., where they pressed a limited run of their first recording, Fried Egg CD. Their blend of quirky lyrics and distorted grunge guitar was soon recognized with radio airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq before the duo was invited to BBC Radio 6 to record a live session for Marc Riley in 2008. The same year, the Lovely Eggs released Have You Ever Heard Lovely Eggs, a 7" EP that was available through Cherryade Records, which would also release the band's debut album, If You Were a Fruit, in 2009. Holly and David then returned to the U.S. -- where the record was released through Happy Happy Birthday to Me -- to play SXSW. Back in the U.K., they toured with Eddie Argos and Dyan Valdés' Everybody Was in the French Resistance...Now! and played at the Indie Tracks Festival.
Their second full-length album, Cob Dominos, was released in the U.K. in early 2011 and again led to the Lovely Eggs touring around the country before they linked up with Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys, who produced their single "Allergies," which was released through Too Pure. The song was also the opening track on Wildlife, the duo's third album, which appeared at the tail-end of 2012 and was promoted with a U.K. tour. Following a short break, the duo returned in April 2015 with "Magic Onion," the first single from their fourth full-length, This Is Our Nowhere, which arrived that summer. By the time of 2016's Drug Braggin' 7", most Lovely Eggs' releases arrived via their own imprint, Egg Records.
Their fifth album was preceded by a pair of singles in "I Shouldn't Have Said That" and "Wiggy Giggy," with the Dave Fridmann-produced full-length, This Is Eggland, arriving in February 2018. Their sixth set, I Am Moron, arrived just two years later: co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT), the album saw release in April of 2020.
