(Victoria, BC) – Victoria indie soul-pop group Lovecoast are releasing their newest single ‘The Floor’ along with a brand new music video TODAY via Exclaim.ca! After a successful 2015 playing alongside Canadian acts such as Jocelyn Alice and The Fast Romantics, and gracing stages like Pemberton Music Festival 2015, Lovecoast hasn’t let 2016 slow them down. Along with their newly released single ‘The Floor’, Lovecoast recently played JUNOfest in Calgary and were just named Band of the Month for April 2016 at The Zone 91.3 in Victoria.
Just like their 2014 debut EP “Chasing Tides”, Lovecoast’s newest single ‘The Floor’ was produced and engineered by JUNO nominated producer/engineer Tom Dobrzanski (Hey Ocean, Said the Whale, We Are The City) at Monarch Studios in Vancouver. Once again, Tom brought out the best in the band as ‘The Floor’ truly speaks to their dance driven nature and tight musicality. The band also had the pleasure of working closely on their new music and industry approach with CIRAA mentor Eon Sinclair of Bedouin Soundclash. “The members of this band continue to be very impressive in their approach to music and life at large,” said Sinclair.
A lot has changed for Lovecoast over the past year as members Danielle Sweeney, Andrew Fraser and Jesse McNeill have welcomed a new guitar player, Mike Clement, and have added a fifth member, keyboardist/trumpet player Phil Hamelin. Though they’re new members, Clement and Hamelin are no strangers to the group as all five members graduated from Vancouver Island University’s music program.
“It took us four years after our graduation to realize we should have never stopped playing together,” explains lead vocalist Sweeney. “And today it feels like we never did.”
Now a strong five-piece Lovecoast are ready to share their new sound, starting with a show at Guilt & Company in Vancouver tomorrow! And they’re keeping up momentum this summer and have just announced their first festival of the season: Victoria’s Ska & Reggae Festival June 25th opening for The Black Seeds.
