Brooklyn via London synth-pop group Lovelife are teaming up with R&B pop quintet The Neighbourhoodonce again for a fall US tour. Coming off a successful coast-to-coast tour in late spring with Capital Cities, Gold Fields, and The Neighbourhood, the band have debuted the first single, 'Midnight Swimming' (viaNYLON) off their third EP, Stateless, to be released on October 1st. The EP follows Neon Gold's June release of AA-side 7" single, 'Your New Beloved'/'Dying To Start Again,' which went Top 5 on the Hype Machinetwice, as well as the band's limited edition split 7-inch with The Neighbourhood for the song 'Every Minute.'
Lovelife, aka Lee Newell and his compatriot Ally Young, spent half of 2012 in New York City, where they played a string of dates in and around the city capped by a set of breakout performances at CMJ Music Marathon, earning praise from MTV Hive, Yours Tru.ly, Noisey, Under the Radar, Entertainment Weekly, and more. The band released two self-produced EPs in 2012 (El Regreso and The Fourth Floor), the latter on UK label National Anthem (HAIM, Chvrches), receiving over 350,000 plays on SoundCloud and 40,000 downloads, and have performed with Fitz and the Tantrums, St. Lucia, Flume and more.
Lovelife utilizes swirling synth pads, impassioned vocals and robust, precise beats to create a blend of smooth, brooding R&B and shimmering pop with more substance than most. Their infectious hooks and slick production have drawn a legion of fans in their short existence, which is poised to grow even further after their return to the US.They've also done official remixes for The Killers, Neon Trees, Maroon 5 andImagine Dragons, and there are more in the works, along with a new album of original material later this year.
