Swedish rock‘n’roll band Blues Pills deliver catchy new track ‘Don’t You Love It’ from their forthcoming album ‘Birthday’.

The song will also be released on a limited split 12” with album title track ‘Birthday’, exclusively for Record Store Day 2024 on April 20th. A stompin’ anthem to get the party started, ‘Don’t You Love It’ is about living in the now and trying to have fun “You’ve gotta let that sh*t go” states frontwomen Elin “When life is hard, but you let things go and find the positives. Don’t take life so seriously, just go for the ride and let loose.” You can hear influences from The Rolling Stones to Patti Smith, with a driving infectious bassline courtesy of Kristoffer Schander. Elin, sometimes channelling Brody Dalle other times more Janis Joplin, delivers her own effortless charism a and charm on this poppy number. It’s rare for Blues Pills to be so upbeat “we have a lot of depressing lyrics, we have a lot of depressed sounding songs, but this is a song to dance to!” continues Elin. “It’s a breakout for us to have such a positive song!” agrees Zack (guitarist).

‘Don’t You Love It’ was written at home in Elin’s living room, “We were feeling good, Blues Pills are in a good place, and we wrote the lyrics based on that feeling.” Zack and Elin are both feeling positive about Blues Pills “I’m having fun” says Elin giggling. “It’s some thing that came with age” states Zack “We’ve been a band for a long time and with this album, and at this point, it’s firstly about having fun making music. In the earlier days there was a lot of pressure, now we’ve let all that go.”
