Introducing: Locks

Fans of Messers Tom Waits & Nick Cave need to check out the macabre sounds of Locks...


Locks are L.GG (guitars & vocals), Mike Byrne (double bass), Marian McClenaghan (fiddle) & Andy Marvell on drums hailing from all part of the UK and now residing in North London.

The Sound?

Gothic sea-shanties reminiscent of a more polished Rain Dogs era Tom Waits. These are songs that sound like they’re crafted to accompany  one of Tom’s drinking sessions. Exhibit A – The Gin Song…

The Story

After playing with a variety of different bands with disparate genres L.GG, Mike & Marian found themselves in a rehearsal room together writing parts of murder ballads involving burying bodies, strange creatures and dark family secrets. Drummer Mike came on board later, lord only know what he thought he was getting into.

Essential Tracks…
