Latchford cafe helps inspire latest single from Lord and the Woolf


A song written in a Latchford cafe while waiting for a new clutch on an old Ford Focus, became the latest single from North West duo Sam Lord and Joe Woolf.

Now based in Salford, Joe from Lord and the Woolf up until recently, had lived and operated around the Widnes/Warrington area.
From gigs to skateboarding competitions, Warrington has always been a place of inspiration and a hub for range of activities.
In fact, the first draft of the lyrics written for ‘Young’ were written in a cafe in Latchford whilst waiting for a new clutch in Joe’s ol’ Ford Focus.
After previously touring with bands ‘Chappaqua Wrestling’, ‘Aquilo’, ’LOWES’, and ‘Shy Luv’, Sam and Joe decided to start their own project.
With Joe conveniently being a producer, they took to his studio to hone and create their own unique style and sound.
Their studio writing process and attention to detail spawned a dense and interesting production aesthetic, resembling the likes of ‘Alt-J’, ‘Bombay Bicycle club’ and ‘Tame Impala.’
Following two previous singles including the euphoric ‘Etta’s Game’, this month will mark the release of their 3rd single ‘Young’ alongside a music video, which has received incredible support including a premier via Lauren Laverne on BBC 6Music.
‘Young’ carries a narrative that highlights youthful lust and love, and how it can harness the power to distort our moral compass.
At a point in everyone’s life, they must make a choice to either leave or stay in a life-defining moment.
Young is out now-
