The Loves 'xs and Os / She’ll Break Your Heart Again EP'

£1.50

This is the Loves’ new EP. Back from nowhere and ready to fill your ears. Lead number “Xs and Os” is a fuzzed up love song to a friend in trouble that’s equal measures T-Rex and The 1910 Fruitgum Company, while “She’ll Break Your Heart Again” is a new and far superior version of the B-side to their very first single, remade/remodelled by Andy Davidson of Cardiff’s Slow Graffiti to resemble a lost late 60s beat pop classic.

Both tracks are taken from the forthcoming second Loves album “Technicolour”, recorded over the last 2 years at Soup Studios in London, eschewing the current trend for annoying high end staccato angular guitars and wonky elastic bass lines and instead aiming for a sound somewhere between “Headquarters”-era Monkees and The Velvet Underground.

Also on the EP is a cover of Brazilian psychedelicists Os Mutantes’ “Nao Va Se Perder Por Ai”, resplendent with Muppet Show backing vox, and a new song recorded at home on 4-track “My Sweet Drunken Blues (For You)”.

“Xs and Os is a singalonga slab of harmonic blues, but the real gem is She'll Break Your Heart… all Spector-ised, a huge wall of sound production engulfing soaring keys, military percussion, chimes and a terrific Louie Louie-esq 60s riff.” (SoundsXP)
