SXSW 2014 Interview: Owen Lloyd, James Thomas and Tom Warhurst of Longfellow

London band Longfellow were a long way from home Thursday night when they played the BBC Introducing night curated by indie music champion Steve Lamacq. However, when Lammo comes calling, you answer. Playing their first-ever show in the States in front of a rammed Latitude 30 at the British Music Embassy must have been nerve-wracking, but I was so pleased that three of their band – singer Owen Lloyd, guitarist James Thomas and drummer Tom Warhurst – were on hand and willing to sit down with me to chat about coming over for SXSW 2014 and what it meant to them to be playing such a momentous night, how they got signed to indie label Fierce Panda and the stories behind some of their most anthemic songs to date. Listen below.

Many thanks to the guys for chatting with me after their set!
