Curse Of Lono was formed in London in 2015 by singer-songwriter Felix Bechtolsheimer following the breakup of British roots pioneers Hey Negrita.

'We released four records with Hey Negrita, toured all over the world, played at more festivals than I can remember and had a great time doing it but there was a growing sense that it was time for something new. Then I bumped into my old friend Oli Bayston from the band Boxed In, who was producing albums for Domino and Nettwerk as well as working on a solo record. He was involved in a completely different scene, obsessed with Krautrock and Radiohead, which really opened my eyes to new ways of writing and recording.'

The collection of songs that emerged formed a stunningly cinematic sound that combines spaced out, harmony-laden Americana with driving, gothic indie-rock.

In the summer of 2015 Curse Of Lono added ex-Hey Negrita drummer Neil Findlay, lead guitarist Joe Hazell, bassist Charis Anderson and keyboardist Dani Ruiz Hernandez to the lineup.

As a precursor to the release of their debut album in March 2017, Curse Of Lono here present their debut EP, consisting of four songs that form the soundtrack for a short film of inter-connected videos directed by Alex Walker and shot by Bart Sienkiewicz. The film, which stars Grant Masters and Marta Hermida, will be released alongside the EP.
