Vocalist and multi-synth-pedal-instrumentalist April Love and drummer plus multi-synth instrumentalist Loren Luck make up this project. Originally from Silver Lake, California, the band formed in 2014, named for The Good Luck bar, where they met. Many mai tai’s and 2 full-length records later, the band is now set for this new release, along with third west coast tour and first UK tour. “We’re having fun; at same time, there’s much reflection on fun moments, like dancing in clubs or going to the beach but we transition, going deeper into the unknown. On our first debut record, there were a lot of sky and space concepts introduced. For this second album, we get down right spooky. Like my brain keeps imagining a transition into ‘rainbow body’ while I’m playing ‘Soul Alive'” says April Love.
After such wonderful feedback and inspiring coverage in dozens of countries of ‘Soul Alive’, the first single from LUCKYANDLOVE‘s forthcoming ‘Transitions’ album, I’m happy to finally present you their second single ‘Dangerous Runaway’. This is the modern sound of futures past – a musical road map to our sonic destination.
“I play typical loud and bassy, control filter synths, and Loren has psycho beats and our spoon bending lyrical concepts brush up against danger, and suspense like in ‘Dangerous Run Away’. These songs are up for interpretation cause this ride is totally up to you.” – AL
If you happen to be a die-hard fan of Ladytron, Crystal Castles, Metric, Le Tigre or Phantogram, you should really appreciate LUCKYANDLOVE, but those nostalgic for a great 80s music straddling the cusp between synthpop and new wave music should also put some good mileage on their audio players with the new ‘Transitions’ album.
