Following the success of their recent single releases Find A Way and Best of Me, South London duo James Lamb and Richard Craker - aka 11 - are delighted to announce the release of their EP Why Choose Me, out now.
Combining their funk-fuelled hooks with a buoyantly energised groove, 11 neatly straddle the line between rock and electro to produce a sound akin to the likes of Passion Pit. Accented by James Lamb’s impressive, soul-soaked vocals and blended effortlessly with frenzied beats, 11 fuse together an eclectic range of sounds, showcasing the duo’s impeccable production skills, creating instantly catchy, uplifting indie-pop. With the aforementioned Find A Way and Best of Me making an immediate impact for the band, 11 will be hoping the unveiling of EP tracks ‘Why Choose Me’, ‘Face’ and ‘Will It Ever Be Enough’ will continue to solidify their expansive sound to an ever increasing fanbase.
Having written, recorded, mixed and mastered Best of Me at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand - where The Libertines recently recorded their critically-acclaimed ‘Anthems for Doomed Youth’, the launch of their Why Choose Me EP is the next step in the duos development. With acclaim streaming in for their debut Find A Way, including being nominated for a UK Music Video Award for ‘Best Pop Newcomer’, 11 have since been supported by the likes of Earmilk, Clash Magazine and Variance Magazine to name but a few.
Why Choose Me is out now.
