UK Artist of the Week: Ralph of London

Ah, the Britpop era—those were they days hey? Well fear not because it may well be having a resurgence if this week’s Artist of the Week is anything to go by. Please make way for Ralph of London and their infectious new single “Dotty,” out now!

Combining all the best elements of Britpop, alt-rock, and indie, Ralph of London’s “Dotty” is a fun-filled slice of British rock that just keeps on giving. Lead singer Ralph’s distinctive vocal style is easily reminiscent of the likes of Damon Albarn but it also has a slight tinge of Kurt Cobain to it, which we find equally pleasing to the ear.

The single also comes with a rather humorous video where we see “a king falling in love with somebody completely unattainable and being driven to madness under the shadow of a fading illusion,” the band explain. Intriguing stuff.

Despite their heavily British sound, Ralph of London are currently based in the north of France no less! Together, the group creates unconventional soundscapes that are both tongue-in-cheek and politically forward-thinking.

“Dotty,” taken from Ralph of London’s latest album The Potato Kingdom, is in stores now.
