Los Angeles-based duo Lucky+Love present their self-titled debut album. These eight electrified tracks were written when bandmates Loren Luck (drums, synths) and April Love (vocals, keyboards, guitar) were living next to a noisy construction site in Glendale, California. Here, they successfully incorporate synth-heavy bass with polyphonic harmonies and crystalline vocals, propelling the music into trance-inducing territory. Inspired by artists such as New Order, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Depeche Mode, Washed Out, Tycho, and Cocteau Twins, their sound falls beautifully into an everyman's land between electro rock, dream pop, electronica, and synth gaze. This music has, in the words of Loren Luck, "lots of LFO, riveting arpeggiations, simultaneous solos via spacey square waves, with April's smoky vocals." Lucky+Love is an electronic music record, but comes from a more traditional place, where OMD or Kraftwerk came from -- one of an unsampled, unprogrammed live recording originally at 192kHz/24-bit quality. "Musically, as much attention was paid sonically to the organic moog instruments as April's voice, and we offered the analog synths space in the songs to breathe to their true dynamic potential," says Loren Luck. This album came to light through recordings at Eagle Rock's Cave Studio with Josiah Mazzaschi, sessions with sound editor Morgen Stary, and comp-ny Studio, with Grammy winner Be Hussey (Guides). Lucky+Love currently write and record in their music studio in Echo Park, California. The video for the lead single "Digging In The Earth" was directed and edited by cinematographer and animator Steve Barron.
