Having formed over a mutual love of North American alternative rock, the 5-piece outfit consisting of Sarah Hall (vocals), James Hall (guitar/keys), Graeme Martin (guitars), Mark Brown (bass) and James King (drums); began playing local shows in their hometown (Newcastle). However it wasn’t long before their melodic, melancholy songs took them to greater heights.
The self released No Hot Ashes garnered much local andnational attention and with their self-released singles Six Wolves, Fast Fast and Dirty Lakes, the band have twice been invited to Maida Vale studios for both BBC Radio 6 and Radio 1. Dirty Lakes was also included on Spotify's "Songs of 2011" list, showcasing all the best music from the last year.
Within a year of playing their debut show in a small Newcastle pub, the band were invited by Michael Eavis to perform at Glastonbury 2010 on the John Peel stage alongside Foals, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons and The XX.
Self described as ''melodic soundscapes slapped on driving rhythm sections'' James Hall's older sister Sarah was asked to front the band in mid 2009 gaining applause from The Guardian… "a voice that connotes angelic purity" and Q Magazine ''Imagine a femalefronted Shins.'' Sean Adams, editor of Drowned In Sound has become an avid fan, describing Let's Buy Happiness as… "one of the most thrilling new bands I’ve seen in years”
As well as supporting the legendary Primal Scream at Electric Brixton, LBH have toured the UK with Frankie and The Heartstrings; and We Were Promised Jetpacks, gathering a large fan base on their travels. Other supports include Idlewild, The Temper Trap, Vivian Girls, HEALTH, Sky Larkin and The Futureheads.
The band are about to embark on a mini UK Tour throughout May in support of their latest self-released single 'Works Better On Paper' (release date 4th June / Ghost Arc).
