Th Angsty Anthems of the New Loveboys EP





Th Angsty Anthems of the New Loveboys EP

Who ever thought bringing a lighthearted air to angst ridden grunge would sound so sweet? Loveboys' did, and it's the whole premise behind their latest self-titled EP release.

Out just a couple weeks ago, the Loveboys' self-titled EP is a cathartic collection of songs written with a truculent lyrical bite by guitarist and vocalist Adam Fight. Following the loss of his mother, Fight's relocation to one of the most angsty regions in the country made for the ideal setting to get out all of those emotions. Along with Elly Swope on drums and Victoria Valenzuela on bass, a general aggravation with the current state of the world can be heard through the lyrics and felt through the trio's sheer energy, bouncing between grunge, punk and pop hooks. "Sow" is a driving force of harsh reverb with grittily grungey chords. Capitalism is a topic on tracks like "Racecar," while "Love" and "Happy" tackle the subjects in a stinging way. 

Despite the seven tracks on the EP born out of such a personal time in Fight's life, the album feels as if the current masses as a whole can relate to it. We've all been harboring a particular sort of aggression towards the world lately, and this EP from the Loveboys is the boisterous, relatable anthemic stock needed.
