Tuff Love are Julie Eisenstein (guitar, vocals) and Suse Bear (bass, vocals – also a member of fellow Lost Map artists Monoganon and The Pictish Trail’s live band). They come from Glasgow, and they write dazzling, sun-streaked guitar pop songs with mesmerising lyrics, heart-wrenching vocals and dreamy melodies like the sound of pure summer. They make all their music in Suse’s flat, self-engineering and self-producing everything.

One of Scotland’s most exciting new bands returned with the Dross EP on Feb 9, the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Junk EP, which upon release in May saw Tuff Love variously hailed as “the makings of a very special band” (Fake DIY), writers of “perfect pop music” (Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland) and “your new favourite band” (The Daily Record). They’ve have been championed by DJs including Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Rob Da Bank, Huw Stephens, Gideon Coe, Bethan Elfyn and Shell Zenner. Across a packed 2014, Tuff Love played festivals including Glastonbury, T in the Park, Wickerman, Howlin’ Fling and Long Division, toured the UK and Europe, and opened for artists including PAWS, Real Estate, Joanna Gruesome, Perfect Pussy and Honeyblood.
