Record of the Week: The Luck - If this is love

At Pub in the Park this weekend there were so many great bands. David Gray, The Kaiser Chiefs, Scouting for Girls, Dodgy, Steve Harley & The Cockney Rebels and Girls Aloud to name but a few. Who was your favourite?

However one band stood out as a break through artist to watch and that was The Luck - London-based acoustic duo brother and sister, Max & Esmay Luck.

The Luck [of the Irish] totally surprised the crowd in a good way. Think of The Corrs, The Cranberries, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, 10,000 Maniacs or The Eagles and you will get their Americana/Country sound.

The standout single was ‘If this is love’ - You can pre-order our album ‘Ready to Run’ coming out on 26th July 2019
