"Frontman Lee Newell did not belong on The Echo's stage; he belongs in stadiums...it was clear this band is determined for greatness." - Best New Bands [Live Review in LA]
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 Yours Tru.ly, 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 250,000 plays on SoundCloud and 25,000 downloads, and have performed with Fitz and the Tantrums, St. Lucia, Flume and more. The band also debuted a new video for their single 'Your New Beloved' with MTV Hive last month, which went Top 5 on the Hype Machine.
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 and Imagine Dragons, and there are more in the works, along with a new album of original material later this year.
