LOVELORN SHINES AND SHIMMERS ON NEW SINGLE ‘REASON’

LOVELORN SHINES AND SHIMMERS ON NEW SINGLE ‘REASON’
Salad Days

The duo of Anna + Patrick Troxell (ex-Creepoid) will release ‘What’s Yr Damage’ on August 6th.

Philadelphia’s Lovelorn recently shared details for their debut album ‘What’s Yr Damage’ (out on August 6th via 6131 Records), and the duo (comprised of Anna + Patrick Troxell) have unveiled the album’s gauzy and gleaming second single, ‘Reason’. With their steadfast take on synth-fueled pop, it is clear that the end of one project begets another, the existence of a troubled past implies a promising future, and a wound can open as a world of potential.

Named for a term of endearment used between the pair, ‘What’s Yr Damage’ celebrates the longstanding romantic and creative partnership between the duo. Eager to press flesh to the sonic skeletons left by Creepoid, the Troxells began to connect their expansive influences into a constellation of sound they’ve coined as “drug pop”. From dusky new wave synths to throbbing Detroit techno, ‘What’s Yr Damage’ lies on the outskirts of conventional pop music. Using a menagerie of analog and digital instrumentation, Lovelorn’s sound is rooted in the heydays of their prime influences—Soulwax, Echo & The Bunnymen, Spacemen 3—with eyes set on a self-made future.

‘What’s Yr Damage’, tracklisting:

1. Fight Or Flight

2. Sickness Reward

3. Reason

4. Leaps & Bounds

5. Get A Job

6. Hole In Yr Soul

7. Around You
