London After Midnight (aka LAM) has retained and nurtured the political and socially aware element of the later punk scene that had virtually vanished from all music in the early 90s, and has become a passionate and socially outspoken dark rock-music project.
The band has a large worldwide following, with many rock, alternative, industrial, and gothic music fans. LAM shuns labels, however, saying that labels can limit an artist’s creative freedom and can also destructively divide audiences – some people can define themselves by the style of music they listen to and refuse to expand beyond that label, which can ultimately limit artists.
Brennan says “LAM is always evolving, trying something different and new, and I’m never content to be just another music project”. Often classified by the press as dark-wave, industrial, deathrock or gothic, LAM break all the “rules” of those scenes and create a unique and strong identity and sound, while rejecting any one label and embracing all music.
Brennan’s influences and musical passions are far ranging and varied. He takes pride in the fact that London After Midnight does not fit into any musical category but attracts fans across multiple genres. London After Midnight is simply London After Midnight, and that seems enough for LAM’s fans.
