The Love Detectives are a distinctive blend of the retro and the contemporary.
Songwriter and guitarist Nick Burnell’s vocal tones are redolent of Feargal Sharkey with shades of Bryan Ferry whilst the edgy authority of solo artist Anna Tosh’s lead guitar drives the band’s powerful dynamic energy. The witty repartee between Tosh’s guitar and Graham Elliott’s bluesy keyboards is underpinned by the unceasingly imaginative backline of Ray Brash (bass) and Dickie Ford (drums).
The Love Detectives’ debut EP Nothing To Say? demonstrates the band’s total comfort with, and obvious flair for, varied musical styles. From the uncompromising post-Punk, 21st century Indie rock of Enemy of the Good to the purity of Too Late, by way of the highly original reflective blues of Eton Mess, The Love Detectives are staking their claim to a musical versatility to which few bands aspire these days.
The Love Detectives appear regularly at live music venues in London and perform both as a five piece rock band and as an acoustic duo for more intimate “unplugged” events.
