Alt-pop band lovelytheband translate emotions, anxieties, and feelings into lush, layered, and lively indie pop anthems. When the band was founded by lead singer Mitchy Collins, guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price in 2017, the trio maintain a lasting connection to listeners by holding nothing back. A centerpiece of the band’s debut EP everything I could never say…, the group’s debut single “broken” caught fire as the longest running #1 track on Alternative Radio thus  far in 2018 with six weeks at the top. In under a year, it amassed 25 million total global streams. BuzzFeed summed it up as “So. Damn. Good.” Billboard proclaimed the group among “10 Rock & Alternative Artists to Watch in 2018” as they supported Vance Joy, AWOLNATION and 5 Seconds of Summer on tour between headlining dates everywhere. Everything paved the way for the arrival of the band’s first full-length, finding it hard to smile [RED MUSIC]. Produced by “broken” collaborator Christian Medice, mixed, and mastered by Charlie Park, these 16 tracks entrance, engage, and enchant, offsetting shimmering keys, sweeping synths, and spacey guitars with cathartic, compelling, and catchy choruses. The title speaks directly to its thematic push-and-pull. lovelytheband’s  voice will only get dramatically louder and it might just make crowds  feel better too in 2019.
