lovelytheband translate emotions, anxieties, and feelings into lush, layered, and lively indie pop anthems. Since the band was founded by lead singer Mitchy Collins, guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price in 2017, the trio has maintained a lasting connection to listeners by holding nothing back.
A centerpiece of the “everything I could never say... “ EP, the group's debut single "Broken" caught fire as the longest running #1 track on Alternative Radio thus far in 2018 with six weeks at the top. In under a year, it amassed 25 million total global streams. BuzzFeed summed it up as "So. Damn. Good." Billboard proclaimed the group among "10 Rock & Alternative Artists to Watch in 2018" as they supported Vance Joy and AWOLNATION on tour between headlining dates everywhere. “Everything” paved the way for the arrival of the band's first full-length, “finding it hard to smile.” [Red Music]. Produced by "Broken" collaborator Christian Medice, these 16 tracks entrance, engage, and enchant, offsetting shimmering keys, sweeping synths, and spacy guitars with cathartic, compelling, and catchy choruses.
They preceded the album's release with the single "These are My Friends," which quickly cracked 2 million streams worldwide. Wound up by faint guitar and a chant, "These are my friends, these are my friends, I love them," the track crescendos towards an ambitious arena-ready hook.
