LOVATS – Over
LOVATS is a different kind of band though. Each song they’ve released is almost completely different, which just showing how many strings they have to their bow. ‘Over’ is the song that initially grabbed my nerve towards this band, a simple and catchy tune, apposing by a hurricane of a chorus. ‘Golden similarly incorporates catchy rhythms,throwing in a mesmerizingsynth.Although, there is one thing that remains consistent throughout all the tracks, the bold and brutal lyrics spat by lead singer, Ciaran Scanlon. The latest track, ‘White Fire’ is mixed with this epic andanthemic melody, bring together elements of White Lies and The Killers.
