The rock n’ roll of the 70s is alive and well with modern psych-rockers, Lovechild.
After finally landing the perfect old cargo compartment for the top of their car and spending the day jigsaw puzzling all of their gear inside in anticipation of a 1,700+ mile road trip from NYC to SXSW, the pandemic took full force.
Instead of feeling defeated, Lovechild—comprised of frontman Leo Lovechild, guitarist Aaron Mones and bassist/producer Wyatt Mones—turned lemons into lemonade.
“We were torn up to not get to play live music again for the first time in 4 months, but we figured we could still make something of the time we’d docked out to be on the road,” Leo Lovechild confesses. “So we holed up for a few days with a minimal amount of gear and a lot of whiskey in a cheap Airbnb I managed to find in Copake, NY, set up two mics, two amps, and about three-quarters of a drum kit that our good friend Ariel (who is credited to drums on the track) brought from his garage, and we let the recording juices get flowing.”
The result is a 70s-tinged love ballad, complete with fuzzy guitar riffs and Leo’s soulful crooning. Swoon. To accompany the single release, Lovechild put together a DIY-style “home video” inspired by the band’s road musings, chronicling their journey touring and recording.
