Lulu & The Lampshades came into the musical spotlight recently for its track entitled Cups. In the recent film, Pitch Perfect, Anna Kendrick sang and played the track while auditioning for the Barton Bellas. The song gained a lot of publicity after the film hit the big screen with several Google searches and Spotify starred tracks. Some fans even learned how to play the song like Kendrick and Lulu on an actual cup.
That said, Lulu & The Lampshades is more than a band full of cups. They have a few other tracks worth listening to, which is impressive because of the very few number of tracks they’ve recorded thus far. In 2011, the band released their EP, “Cold Water,” which contained both “Cups” and another great track entitled “Demons.” Like “Cups,” “Demons” has an interesting sound and lyrical mix with tambourines, bells, guitars, and wispy vocals.
Tiffany Daniels, writer for The Line of Best Fit explains, “Cold Water” proves Lulu & the Lampshades are capable of much more than quirky entertainment. This isn’t just whimsical fun; this is a well-conceived plan, put to enjoyable melody and rhythm.” Even with so few tracks, the band brings imagination and originality to the table, and I look forward to what comes next.
