Future Sound of Nottingham Finalists: Louis Croft

30 June 18 interview: Sam Nahirny

We grabbed a few words with Louis Croft ahead of the Future Sound of Nottingham final at Rock City on Monday 1 July...

How would you describe your music?
A mix of different genres and influences.

What was your reaction to the news you’d be playing the FSN final?
I was really pleased. It took a lot of hard work to get the votes so I was pleased it paid off.

What can the City crowd expect from your performance?
Something different to the usual bands.

Why did you enter FSN?
I won Noise of the Next Generation so I automatically got through to the semi-final. I was going to enter it anyway so I was pleased when I found out I got into the semis.

Who are your biggest musical influences?
Jake Bugg, Oasis, and The Beatles.

What Nottingham artists are you loving at the minute?
There's not really anyone who I've seen that I like. Not to say that there isn't, I just haven't found them yet! A lot of what I listen to is older music.

What are your biggest non-musical influences?
My dad (Richard) who's a legend!

What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
Releasing my second EP with Phlexx Records and winning Noise of the Next Generation.

Any last words for LeftLion?
Nice one lads!
