Recorded in Liverpool during late 2020, Oh My Love is the product of sessions in which The Lathums poured off-stage frustrations of lost live shows into glistening studio recordings, evoking the song’s theme of turning desperation to hope. Comparisons to the great neighbourhood poets of British pop, from The Smiths and Arctic Monkeys to Orange Juice and The Jam, are unlikely to dry up any time soon.
Formed of Moore (vocals/guitars), Concepcion (lead guitars/vocals), Johnny Cunliffe (bass) and Ryan Durrans (drums/vocals), The Lathums look forward to a louder and sweatier 2021, with a total of eight live dates upgraded to bigger venues, four brand new dates added and nine shows at existing venues moved from April and May to new nights this winter.

*Upgraded and Rescheduled Dates
Encouraged by signs that a post-lockdown UK will allow them to return to the stage at home and abroad, The Lathums also pick up rearranged arena tour dates with Blossoms and accept the invitation from Paul Weller to open his UK-wide run of shows later this year.
The Lathums’ story began just two years ago with the band making swift graduation from local pubs to festival stages including Kendal Calling and Neighbourhood Weekender. The Lathums nimbly swerved the wreckage of the Coronavirus pandemic to remain stubbornly on the rise. 2020 saw them make their first impression on the UK Album Charts, settling at Number 14 for their vinyl-only EP compilation, The Memories We Make and then taking top spot in the UK Vinyl Chart – TWICE – for their first two Island Records releases, All My Life and I See Your Ghost.
It was a year that also saw them honoured with a place on the BBC Sound Of 2021 longlist, appearing on Later… With Jools Holland and enjoying a week-long BBC Radio One residency on the BBC Introducing Playlist. The breathless pace at which their popularity has escalated has been captured in upbeat recording sessions for their debut album at Parr Street Studios with producers, James Skelly and Chris Taylor.
