Hailing from Buffalo, New York, 4- Piece Alternative Rock band Previous Love have released their staggering debut self titled EP.
Made up of 5 breathtaking tracks that had us hooked from the first listen. The EP was recorded with Jay Zubricky (Every Time I Die, Head North, Pentimento) blending some well crafted ambience with that classic 90s grunge sound.
Drawing their influences from Emo, Post-Hardcore, Shoegaze and melodic Punk genres; Previous Love have thrown them all together to make a very refined piece of music.
Their self titled debut EP focuses on some issues faced by members of the band feeling distant from home in their first years at college, making friends, certainly things we can all relate to. I asked the guys what the story was behind their brilliant new EP.
“We’ve been best friends making music since middle school, and when time for college came along, we put music aside a bit. The record was result of the four of us realizing we can’t go without music together. Despite our singer going to school in Florida, we wrote constantly via group chats, voice memos, etc. and put it all together right when our singer came home from school. We aren’t in this to just be another set of band dudes. We’re making the songs that we want to hear, and hopefully they change peoples’ lives the same way our favorite records have changed ours.”
This is an amazing debut from a band I see having a huge future. There are some huge tracks on this album and the two that really stand out for me are track 2 ‘Pinwheel’ which is a wonderful daydream of a track, the ambience is striking, this could seriously be one of my favourite tracks of 2017 so far. Check it out below!
It’s track 4 ‘Caffeine’ that really shows off the talent of Previous Love and already I’m hooked ‘more than caffeine’ I cant stop listening to it, the crushing guitars, the beautiful lyrics and the song sets a great scene. This song is perfect when you’re in that nostalgic mood, pondering on where your life is headed. Check it out below.
