Common Goldfish

Drawing influences from Britpop, psychedelia and 90s electronica, the common goldfish sound boasts a nostalgic familiarity, nodding to the past while reaching for the future. The brainchild of Jonty Lovell, a Tottenham-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, common goldfish combines vibrant melodies, breakbeats and funk-inspired bass lines to create infectious, optimistic grooves.

From impromptu sets in Tottenham skateparks to gigs on boats floating down the Regent’s Canal, Lovell’s instrumental versatility has echoed into experimental use of iconic London locations. Now taking the stage as a 4-piece band, the evolving live show has electrified Cloud X Festival and a sold-out headline performance at Camden Assembly.

His debut 2022 single, “Feel The Fuzz”, received critical acclaim from the likes of Clash, Clout, LDN Magazine & This Song is Sick while being nominated for ‘best debut of the year’ by Joy of Violent Movement.

“Quite Extraordinary” is how Amy Lame described the most recent single, Tottenham Ritzy, on the best new music programme on radio 6. With more radio support from the likes of Steve Lamacq, a national playlist add from John Kennedy at Radio X and being chosen as a BBC introducing featured artist in 2023, he’s been tipped as one to watch in 2024.
