about

‘TO REST IS TO RUST’ IS THE EAGERLY ANTICIPATED, FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM FROM 24 YEAR OLD UK PRODUCER LOUIS LA ROCHE.

Written, recorded and mastered at his home studio throughout 2014, Louis moves away from the familiar House sounds akin to previous releases and delves into the Funk and Post-Disco sounds of the early 80’s. Channeling influences such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Prince into his songwriting, he crafts 11 soulful pop tracks that showcase a new set of skills and renewed artistic ambition. Fresh, uplifting and sincere, To Rest Is To Rust is undeniably the product of an intuitive producer who thrives from musical experimentation. Catchy and accessible To Rest Is To Rust is perhaps Louis' most refined and accomplished work to date.

Since establishing his Louis La Roche alias in 2008, Brett Ewels has spent the last 7 years perfecting his craft, intentionally holding back on a debut album release. “I’ve progressed so much as a musician and producer over the past few years. I’ve written and rewritten numerous album attempts, ever surpassing the last. I wanted to make sure my debut album was the best work of my ability and more than just a collection of throwaway club tracks. The songs on To Rest Is To Rust work together as a piece of art and sum up who I am as an artist at this point in my career.”

Unlike previous releases, Louis includes his own vocals on 10 of the 11 tracks. “I’ve always used my voice for getting rough melodies down – I sing into my phone and listen back to the recordings whilst I’m writing. The melodies usually end up becoming the bass, lead line or chord structure, but this time around I wanted to challenge myself by utilising my singing voice. Lyrically the album is inspired by past and present relationships."

The lead single 'Just Like You' is an infectious, three and a half minute, synth-laden pop song busting with summer funk and feel-good vibes. It is released by Ever After Records on 1st June 2015.

The debut album 'To Rest Is To Rust' follows shortly after, available in digital format on 6th July 2015.

Maybe someday
You'll believe girl when I say
That I’m nothing without you
Since you came out of the blue

You know I struggle to express the way I'm feeling
But I'm so happy when we're hugging, kissing, squeezing
I just can't find the words
To describe what you mean to me baby

But I try, I try, I try

Girl your eyes shine
In the darkness you're the light
Make the stars glow through the night
You're my mainline
Yeah you make me feel alive
Girl together we'll survive

If I take you for granted
Let me tell you that you're the one
Girl you've got me enchanted
Cos you're second to none

In the darkness you're the light

Track Name: Just Like You
Through the night I search for someone
Searching desperately
I found a girl she looks like fun
And she knows she's coming home with me

Laying on the bed
Look into her eyes
I've seen this face before
But didn't realise

I said your name out loud
She walked out on me
My mind plays tricks on me

I'm looking for another girl, just like you
I'm looking for another girl, just like you

Just Like You

Baby

Join the line
Yeah join the queue
Waiting patiently
Cos everyone wants to know you
But you just don't wanna know me

Laying on the bed
Wishing you were here
Was it something I said
For you to disappear?

Settle for second best
That's what I’ve gotta do
But girl they're just not you

I'm looking for another girl, just like you
I'm looking for another girl, just like you

Just like you

I didn't wanna let you go,
So I’m just letting you know

I'm looking for another girl x 2

I'm looking for another girl, just like you
I'm looking for another girl, just like you
I'm looking for another girl, just like you
I'm looking for another girl, just like you

Just like you
Track Name: Undercover Lover
Girl you're acting so delirious
Something 'bout you looks mysterious
I can read your mind, just let me in
I can show you places never seen

I'll let you know what's classified
And you can be my private eye
You're the bad girl
I'm the good guy
And it's tearing me apart
If only you were my…

Undercover lover
Top secret other
In the shadows we move
Undercover lover
Gave you my number
What have you got to lose?

Girl I’ve got your hands cuffed to the bed
Gotcha thinking what lies straight ahead
Sexy prisoner under arrest
Spend the night in a state of undress

I'll let you know what's classified
And you can be my private eye
You're the bad girl
I'm the good guy
And it's tearing me apart
If only you were my…

Undercover lover
Top secret other
In the shadows we move
Undercover lover
Gave you my number
What have you got to lose?

I just want you to know
You're my little secret I’ve discovered
Don't tell a soul
Baby... baby just be undercover

Undercover lover
Top secret other
In the shadows we move
Undercover lover
Gave you my number
What have you got to lose?

Undercover lover
I want you, I need you
Top secret other
I love ya baby
In the shadows we move
Undercover lover
Call me girl, you rock my world
Gave you my number
What have you got to lose?
Track Name: Tonight
Can you feel there's something
Built between you and me?
The spark in your eyes
Baby it's ecstasy

You ignite my flame
Do you feel the same?
Can you take a chance
On a true romance?

And I know I am not in love with you
But you make me feel so good, my heart grooves
If I gave you my all, do you think you might
Turn my world around tonight?

Every time I see you
Baby I'm wanting more
The way that you smile
Tells me you're keen I'm sure

All said and done
I just need someone
Somethings in the air
Is this lust we share?

And I know I am not in love with you
But you make me feel so good, my heart grooves
If I gave you my all, do you think you might
Turn my world around tonight?

To get closer to you
Girl don't you want this too?
To get closer to you
Girl don't you want this too?

I'm hoping for another day
To get closer to you
I'm looking for another way
Girl don't you want this too?

I'm hoping for another day
To get closer to you
I'm looking for another way
Girl don't you want this too?

And I know I am not in love with you
But you make me feel so good, my heart grooves
If I gave you my all, do you think you might
Turn my world around tonight?
Track Name: Lonely Girl (feat. Crystal Bats)
So many people here
Pushing through
To see you dancing
While I’m glancing at you

Two hours have gone by
Sitting talking here with me
She says she's insecure
And she can't endure nobody

Lonely girl
I try to find a way into your world
To understand just why you feel so down
If you need me, I'm around

Would you let someone like me
Take your hand?
I say I'm just a guy
No need to be shy
Does she understand?

Have my number won't you call
She kisses me
She says I'm not her type
Wishes me goodnight
I'm on my knees
I'm begging please

Lonely girl
I try to find a way into your world
To understand just why you feel so down
Baby I'm around

Lonely girl
I try to find a way into your world
To understand just why you feel so down
If you need me I'm around

Lonely girl
I try to find a way into your world
To understand just why you feel so down

Baby I'm around
Track Name: Excuses
You're disappointed in me, tell me something new
Say I'm selfish, but it's always about you
Call me a cheat, cos that's exactly what I am
Say Im nothing to you, I don't give a damn

Things just aren't the same
Now that we are through
I don't care no more
And you know it's true

Broke your trust again, what am I to do?
I did what I did because of you

And you tell me that you're sad
And you tell me that you're mad
I just can't find excuses anymore
And you tell me that it's over
You tell me that it hurts
I'm not surprised
You're walking out the door

You take my things, this is daylight robbery
You don't own me, I am not your property
I did you wrong, but do I really deserve this
Yesterday I was yours, now I don't exist

Things just aren't the same
Now that we are through
I don't care no more
You know it's true

Broke your trust again, what am I to do?
I did what I did because of you

And you tell me that you're sad
And you tell me that you're mad
I just can't find excuses anymore
And you tell me that it's over
You tell me that it hurts
I'm not surprised
You're walking out the door

I'm despised by the girl who trust me
I'm not surprised you left me
I'm despised by the girl who loves me
I'm not surprised you left me

And you tell me that you're sad
And you tell me that you're mad
I just can't find excuses anymore
And you tell me that it's over
You tell me that it hurts
I'm not surprised
You're walking out the door

And you tell me that you're sad
And you tell me that you're mad
I just can't find excuses anymore
And you tell me that it's over
You tell me that it hurts
I'm not surprised
You're walking out the door
Track Name: Give Our Love A Chance
I want you
Girl please say
That you feel the same way
There's something
Don't deny
Saw the glint in your eye

I saw you look at me
Said you like what you see
Why don't you tell me more?
What are you looking for?
Why don't you just admit?
How come you won't commit?
Because this love's so pure
Why can't we find the cure?

If love's a simple melody
Tell me whats the remedy
If music makes you wanna dance
Won't you give our love a chance?

Give our love a chance

Play a game
Of kiss chase
End back at your place
In our hearts
Sparks do glow
Let's take it slow baby

I saw you look at me
Said you like what you see
Why don't you tell me more?
What are you looking for?
Why don't you just admit?
How come you won't commit?
Because this love's so pure
Why can't we find the cure?

If love's a simple melody
Tell me whats the remedy
If music makes you wanna dance
Won't you give our love a chance?

Give our love a chance

Give it baby

If love's a simple melody
Tell me whats the remedy
If music makes you wanna dance
Won't you give our love a chance?

If love's a simple melody
Tell me whats the remedy
If music makes you wanna dance
Won't you give our love a chance?
Track Name: Jealousy
I leave the city for a day or two
Your thoughts always wondering what I’m gonna do
I've lost count how many times I say
Trust me, I love you, it will be ok

Paint these pictures of me won't you dear
Say that things are not how they appear
Had enough of these accusations
And the silly fixations

Stop the questions please
On trail to you constantly
Make me feel at ease
Can't cope with your jealousy

I'm feeling guilty but I've done no crime
Checking me over searching all the time
I can't take it this has got to stop
How long will it be until this bubble pops?

Paint these pictures of me won't you dear
Say that things are not how they appear
Had enough of these accusations
And the silly fixations

Stop the questions please
On trail to you constantly
Make me feel at ease
Can't cope with your jealousy

Maybe deep deep down
You'll find it in your heart
To stop until we fall apart

Maybe there's some way
We can mend your doubts
Baby can we work it out?

Stop the questions please
On trail to you constantly
Make me feel at ease
Can't cope with your jealousy

Stop the questions please
On trail to you constantly
Make me feel at ease
Can't cope with your jealousy
