The hype machine around Loving has been building and building since their self-released EP, and today comes the announcement of their debut LP, If I Am Only My Thoughts. This single accompanying the announcement teases these lite little bossa-nova harmonies, working behind these sharp airy guitar notes and calmed percussion. This is the ultimate happy escapism vibe; you can feel yourself sinking into your chair, sinking into yourself…and you probably couldn’t be happier about it. Just another intoxicating pop number here, which has all of us at ATH just as excited as the rest of the folks for their LP. You can grab it on January 31st via Last Gang Records.
It looks as if I’m continuing with my Fall musical appreciation hour, following up the earlier Kevin Scoma tune with this new finger-picking slow burner from Loving. It’s the sort of fireside chat with your stereo you wish you could have throughout those cool Autumn nights, harmlessly lost on some wisp of air that finds its way to your ear. Every note is so careful, such attention given to each detail that it’s purposefulness evolves into this charmingly organic feeling. This is what you can expect from the band’s LP, out next year via Last Gang Records; they’re on tour through North America (Austin show at Hotel Vegas on 10/11) as we speak, with UK/EU dates throughout November.
I hope that no other great songs come across in email this morning, as I feel like this Loving tune might be the perfect way for our site to carry you off into the weekend. It’s a relaxed tune, though not in the casual pop sort of way, but in the sense that you’re sitting back in your recliner with your favorite beverage of choice, letting your mind drift to wherever it roams. The melody is so subtle that you hardly even notice it; you’ll only notice that for almost four minutes, you’ve completely let yourself go. Go ahead, go into the weekend.
It’s supposed to rain here in town this weekend, and as a guy who likes to plan and map out the soundtrack to his life, I wanted to have the perfect song to stare longingly outside while water beads up on the windows at home…lucky for me I found this Loving tune. It’s this beautifully unassuming number; it allows for both the music and your mind to wander about. Built upon a gentle guitar and piano line, the voice really sets you up for that dreamy vibe, almost giving you the chills it’s so powerful. This tune comes with the announcement that the band have signed to Last Gang Records, so we should expect release news sometime in the near future.
