TALE OF TWO Release Third Single, 'Lovelust'

By Press Release / News / Friday, 12 July 2019 07:00

TALE OF TWO, a songwriting duo comprised of Alfie Jackson (ex Holloways frontman turned songwriter/producer) and multi-talented writer and performer Gemma Rogers.

Mixing dark folk with lyrics from the shadows, the music ebbs and flows through very murky waters. They released their debut single ‘Angels’ in Dec 18 which found its way onto the Rough Trade Counter Culture playlist and the accompanying music video was given a feature on clash magazine and was viewed over 1k times in the first fortnight.

‘Lovelust’ is the third single off their hotly anticipated debut E.P.

'Lovelust' is a cautionary lust song warning us not to choose lust over love. It laments through the foreboding future likely to plague the path one is tempted to slither down. Singing to each other, man and woman - the perspectives of two tempted souls who already have lovers are thrown back and forth discussing the drunken allure of something new, short and potent at the risk of what is old, long and lasting. The song calls upon classical melodies and moves from the dark and sinister to the hope of love.

With no conscious influences to speak of, as Alfie puts it “we just sat down and wrote some songs, mainly about stuff we were going through at the time.”
They have just finished a London based mini-tour which included gigs at Southbank Centre, a live session on Talk Radio, Sofar Sounds and Stoke Newington Literary Festival. Tale of Two have also just been confirmed for Kendal Calling.


Alfie and Gemma met while playing on the same bill together and immediately knew they wanted to work together. Writing songs remotely (Alfie lives in Austria) they recently racked up more than 20,000 plays in just two weeks on their first collaboration for Gemma's solo project (single ‘Stop’ was released June 18). Tale of Two are planning on working towards a full-length album with a target release date of Summer 2020.
