Bio

Sisters Maya and Vivi Mohan, aged twenty and seventeen respectively, were born in Sydney before relocating to their parents’ boutique pepper farm in central South East Queensland as children.
It was here in the isolated surrounds of the farmhouse, far beyond the reach of the internet and with only each other for company that the sisters sifted through their parents’ record collection to discover The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and U2 – awakening what has become a lifelong passion for music.
Both are trained in piano from the age of six, however, it wasn’t until their late teens that Maya and Vivi began collaborating on original music together to form L.U.V. Not unlike that of other renowned sister duo Tegan & Sara – L.U.V share singing duties, taking turns to finish each other’s songs to ethereal effect.
Hitherto, L.U.V have released two previous singles, ‘Take Me To The Sea’ and ‘I Can Be The Answer’, a pair of highly ear-worming indie-pop songs with an emphasis on melody and clever lyrical content (perhaps unsurprising considering their mother is a published poet).
Their latest release ‘You’ll Never Let Me Go’ is a summery affair destined to warm your bones this winter. L.U.V have plans to announce live dates later in 2016.

Gets stronger as it gets longer, much like my lush and flowing arm hair.

It's not perfect but it's cool. Definitely keen to hear more.

Catchy as hell. Great lyrics completely devoid of cliche but really evocative. Will get a run on my summer mixtape for sure.
