Luckless Short Info

As the wind across the harbor rears within moments from a soft caress to a brutal howl, so too does the music of Luckless, the ever-evolving musical project spearheaded by songwriter Ivy Rossiter. Originally from New Zealand, Luckless has been touring solo throughout the UK and Europe for most of 2015 and 2016, and has found a new home in Berlin.

Luckless is based around solo vocals over a 1960s Silvertone electric guitar and hypnotic and dynamic live looping. The sound is poised somewhere between the ethereal haze of indie folk and the propulsive drive of alt-rock. Drawing inspiration from 90’s heroes PJ Harvey, Mark Lanegan and Sparklehorse, Luckless has released two albums and an EP, the most recent album ‘Vindication Blues’ receiving a great deal of critical praise.

2014’s sophomore album “Vindication Blues” builds on their 2012 self-titled debut, with a record of great emotional breadth and musical scope.

2017 sees Luckless working on new material for a third album.
