Errrything you need to know
One Direction might be on hiatus, but Louis Tomlinson's keeping himself pretty busy indeed. Not content with working on solo stuff and promoting Just Hold On with Steve Aoki left, right and centre; Louis' got his own bloody Syco girl band to keep him occupied.
Yup - Louis and his pal-come-1D-manager Simon Cowell made the move into music management last year; and after holding 'Be in the Band' auditions they now have a group of four girls ready to take the charts by storm. Apparently they're called Did Alice Call and we're on hand to tell ya everything you need to know about 'em before their big launch.
What are Louis Tomlinson's girl band called?
So here's the deal; we've never actually had confirmation. Directioners don't do things by halves, though, and some eagle-eyed fans put two and two together after this pic of the girls:
Led them to do some digging. 'DAC' on a mirror? Obviously Did Alice Call. They then noticed a band called Did Alice Call had been registered on Markify by Louis' record label Triple Strings Ltd. SNEAKY.
Oh, and Alice is the name of the girls' Syco A&R lass. That's as good as official, right?
EXTRA FUN FACT: He's also got a media company called 78 Productions Limited. Right little businessman, isn't he?
How were Did Alice Call formed?
Sony Music and Syco held auditions for the band back in 2015, with an ad explaining: 'A major record label is now looking for female musicians to create the next big band.'
Notice they were looking for 'musicians.' Yup - these girls can play instruments. We're kind of imagining a female 5 Seconds of Summer (who, incidentally, Louis discovered on YouTube before taking 'em on tour with One Direction.)
Who's in Louis Tomlinson's girl band Did Alice Call?
Right, so we've got:
Are Did Alice Call signed to a record label?
As far as we're aware, yeah. Syco, innit?
Who've Did Alice Call worked with so far?
Not entirely sure, tbh, but they've been snapped with Louis' newfound friend James Arthur which sounds pretty promising.
So there you go - everything we know about Did Alice Call. We'll keep ya posted whenever anything else happens, 'cause it all seems pretty hush-hush rn.
