The Luka State - More Than This

Four-piece from Cheshire Conrad Ellis (vocals, guitar), Sam Bell (bass, voice), Jake Barnabas (drums), and Lewis Pusey (guitars) are Winsford's The Luka State. The town is known for its salt mine and is located midway between Liverpool and Manchester, where every child dreams of playing music or football. The Luka State, thankfully, picked music. The band transforms this into a working-class vitality in their music, with references to The Clash and The Jam's early work.

This is their new single, called More Than This. I really like the fast tempo and the mood of the song, very straightforward and with old Punk rock vibes (I can definitely hear some Clash in there!): great vocals, robust bass lines, inspired and dynamic drumming and tasty guitars. The song has also a great sound, perfect for the genre. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow The Luka State on social media as well.
