exlovers reflect that an elephant would have been just a bit, too, y’know, obvious…
Is guitar pop dead? Not as far as I’m concerned. And the nineties revival seems to be just around the corner…
exlovers are just about to release thier fourth single. Released on Young & Lost Club, ‘Blowing Kisses’ and ‘Moth-eaten Memories’ are two grogeous tracks that say nineties all over again…and yet feel utterly fresh, exciting and necessary.
exlovers were formed by Peter, the singer along with guitarist Chris, singer Laurel, bassist Danny and drummer Brooke at the end of 2007. This single is utterly more-ish, I can’t stop playing it, and I don’t find myself thinking about how or what it reminds me of, rather just what a great single and b-side. In fact, I’ve found over the last two or three weeks I often play the entire thing back to back several times. There’s an album on the way, too, recorded at Rockfield Studios with Demian Castellanos and Jimmy Robertson, which will be out later this year.
Stream the single below -and download the b-side for free!
