Calva Louise, quirky London punks (Jessica, Alizon and Benjamin) have a sound that is difficult to tie down to one genre. Their splicing sound intertwines aspects of indie with gritty punk guitar work and bouncing pop melodies alongside a cool surf-rock aesthetic.

“Getting Closer is about the identity crisis that young adults go through in their early twenties, when they feel their time is up and they have to decide if they’ll be able to one day become the person they’ve always dreamed of being” said the band of the track (which was produced by Margo Broom who has previously worked with the likes of Fat White Family and Catholic Action).
The track is a pulsating escapade of frantic guitars and bubbly, infectious hooks that come together to form a coming-of-age epic, certain to take the band to the top of the game. It’s bass line will have you bopping your head til the sun comes up whilst it’s frenzy of distorted guitars at the chorus will hit you like a train. Front woman, Jess Allanic is frighteningly confident, separating herself from the wave of female fronted bands that are erupting onto the scene of late. Her voice is immaculate, and boy can she shred a solo.
In their short time as a band, the trio have already gained the backing of notorious industry influencers and tastemakers, This Feeling and Flying Vinyl (who distributed their first single ‘I’m Gonna Do Well’).
If you’re from London, be sure to catch Calva Louise on their three date residency with This Feeling at the upcoming dates:
Monday 16th November – The Monarch, London
Saturday 2nd December – The Water Rats, London
Thursday 21st December – The Monarch, London
The band are destined for greatness, there’s no doubt about that. In saying that, don’t be a fool, hit them up with a follow on their social medias (below) and keep ya eyes peeled for what’s next.
