The Lovers World Tour This Fall

The Lovers New Release: A Friend In The World on Badman Records.
The Lovers New Release: A Friend In The World on Badman Records.

Cue the pyrotechnics. From their website, it says: “The three first encountered in 2002 after Berk’s near-fatal van explosion while on tour with an earlier incarnation of the band.” How cool is that? It’s like an origin story for a super hero trio. And within the feminist community maybe Lovers is just that. They write songs that let you cry your heart out or might just inspire you to dance through it or drunk dial your girlfriend. Carolyn Berk, singer, and the mainstay in the band, since its inception, writes most of their material. This current version of the Lovers has seen its way to making two records. Their newest release on Badman records, “A Friend In The World,” is a seasoned second for the trio. Emily Kingan and Kerby Ferris make up the rest of the band. Berk and Ferris met in San Paulo, and it would seem may have been influenced by Argentine Wave, since their music can have a palpable pulsing trance quality to it. Berk calls Portland home, but made Somerville her home once, so come out and support the peeps from the hood. Whether you call it “heartfelt bedroom-pop” as Pitchfork has called it, or “queer synth-rock” as The New Gay has called it, the music is a well produced, professional and worth a listen.
