AM: “There’s a bit of love in this one. There’s a lot of love, really. I wanted to take myself out of my own shoes and see things from somebody else’s perspective. In this scenario, it’s the perspective of a woman, which is hard for a man to do. I’m not saying I’ve learned how to do that but I wanted to give it a go and not think just about me. I think I learned more about myself—ways that I’m selfish but hadn’t really realised, and certain things like that. I think it was owning up to things, things that you could change to better yourself.” Aroesti, Rachel (24 September 2021). "The Lathums: How Beautiful Life Can Be – hearty 00s indie revivalism". The Guardian . Retrieved 1 October 2021. Alex: “Maybe! I think he’ll have some more important things to do. But he’s always welcome with us.” You’re playing your biggest headline show to date at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl in June — do you have anything special planned?

Alex: “It was more inspiring, the fact that [Flowers] took the time to come and speak to us. He said, ‘You write great choruses’ and stuff like that. He was a proper gentleman. That’s how I want people who represent our industry to be: they don’t think they’re above anything. He was really encouraging to us, and said lots of nice things. You only get to live that kind of thing — going on stage with The Killers — once, so I’m sorted now, me.” Might Brandon Flowers join The Lathums on stage at the Castlefield Bowl?Simultaneously stating that the album, set for release on Friday 3rd March 2023 on Island Records will be ‘an act of rebellion having seen the rules of the game’ and encompass more of the ‘sad and strange’, the new single follows springtime’s infectious, soaring teaser, Sad Face Baby out into The Lathums’ brave new world. Promising a total of eleven songs, From Nothing To A Little Bit More follows the UK Official Album Charts No.1 success of the band’s 2021 debut, How Beautiful Life Can Be.

AM: “It’s like Lathums but in a ’90s hip-hop way. It was fun crafting it in the studio. It excited us, like, ‘What can we do now to make it better or make something strange? Where can we push these songs to?’” Wolves, Warrington (6 February 2023). "Warrington Wolves - The Lathums to headline Super League season opener". Warrington Wolves . Retrieved 17 April 2023. Alex: “But put us on any stage anywhere, and we will fulfil. That’s all we do: we’re not even people any more, we’re just musical notes. We’re just part of the music.” The Killers covered ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be’ with Alex during shows in Vienna and Amsterdam last summer. That’s quite the endorsement… Alex Moore: “What’s the point in putting so much into something that you’re not genuinely passionate about? I think it’s quite refreshing that people can see that there’s genuine feelings behind these songs, not like a lot of music that’s out nowadays that’s got no emotion or substance behind it. You can tell those people are singing about what they think people want [to hear]. But I don’t give you what you want: I give you what you need.” Are you confident that your fans will connect with the emotional depth of your new material? NME: ‘From Nothing To A Little Bit More’ is The Lathums’ most personal and honest record to date. Was that always the intention?

Tracklist

AM: “This was a very fun song to record. There’s a lot of melodies, and I know Scott had a whale of a time on it.” The Lathums have developed an album with sheer determination to make an impact, and they’ve certainly made a statement here.

THE KILLERS ft. ALEX MOORE (THE LATHUMS) - How Beautiful Life Can Be Wien, Stadthalle, 12.07.2022 , retrieved 1 February 2023

The Lathums: Wigan indie band score debut number one album". BBC News. October 2021 . Retrieved 1 October 2021. Lyrically emotive, running river deep for front man, Alex Moore, yet audaciously stitched with stadium-sized guitars and brooding rhythms, the statement single found its voice with Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club) in the album producer’s chair. Alex Moore: “I felt that this was a powerful song to start with—it sets off the narrative for the rest of the album. It felt right to be the spearhead. I started writing it when I was a lot younger, and I couldn’t finish it because I wasn’t old enough to understand it at that point—but the end of it came out of me later down the line.” In November 2022, the band announced their second album, From Nothing to a Little Bit More. Following the announcement, "Say My Name" and "Turmoil" were released. Alex: “The smell, the looks, the sex appeal, the ingenuity. Mate, he’s got it all. And he plays the bass really well!”

When you stumble upon a formula that works, why change it? For their second album, The Lathums have kept to their sound, albeit with some tweaks. Despite the magnificent production work by James Skelly on all of their material leading up to From Nothing To A Little Bit More, The Lathums decided to mix things up by opting to work with Jim Abiss at his studio in Cambridgeshire. Abiss’ credits include Arctic Monkeys’ Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, and the first two albums from international pop star Adele. For The Lathums, it seemed a natural fit on paper, and this feeling is reaffirmed with the opening anthem, ‘Struggle’, which gets the album off on the front foot.AM: “A lot of the album is music for an individual—personal music—and we wanted something for everybody in the crowd to get behind, where everybody takes the song for themselves and the energy from everybody is just so good. We’re conscious about stuff like that now. We’re never selfish with it, we never wanted to keep it to ourselves. We always wanted to express it to people but now we understand that, at a show, it’s their time to have a laugh and have a jump around. You have to write a song that’s sat in that category.” The Lathums wear their hearts on their sleeves with From Nothing To A Little Bit More and they tell us through frank lyricism that the world is on the brink. From the very start of this record, the band momentously pushes their sound – and what a sound it is. Alex: “Personally, I feel like we’ve already outdone ourselves massively. With our first album it wasn’t the goal to get Number One, but it was an affirmation of our first real step into music. We wanted to see if the people agreed, and it turns out they agreed very, very strongly. With album two, I’m happy that we’ve brought our music to so many different places and people. I’m not saying I don’t want a Number One, I’ll take it! I’d be very happy with that. But the feeling I get from people is way more important than any accolades. The life that we’re living, being on tour and stuff like that, meeting people: that’s the real stuff that gets you going, not a trophy.” Matty, how pleased are you to now be an official member of The Lathums?
