lovelytheband Release New Single 'sail away'

“sail away” is the first hint of what’s to come from the group’s third studio album, due later this year. 

Los Angeles alt-pop trio lovelytheband take the first step towards their third album with their emphatic new single "sail away". Dubbed iHeartRadio's "Best New Rock/Alternative Artist" in 2019 on the heels of the Billboard-nominated hit "broken", lovelytheband have continued blazing ahead, delivering "sail away" as the first peek into their highly-anticipated third studio album.

Frontman Mitchy Collins delivers an instantly memorable hook, both sung and whistled, over punctuated percussion. The aquatic-themed trio groove effortlessly over a bassline that sways like a lapsing wave, rising and falling in a sea of layered chant vocals. While clocking in at just under three minutes, lovelytheband switch-up "sail away" with a bridge that harmoniously pairs the track's powerful hooks together via bright organs and alluring vocal backings.

The up track's upbeat reverie is like a mirage on the horizon - the type of seeking-elsewhere that can only happen in the vastness of the open sea, as the band explains,

"The song is a daydream. It's a fantasy of escaping the overwhelming pressures and anxieties of everyday life. In those moments it would be easier to just drop everything and sail away. Even from your own mind. Leave everything as is with no goodbyes."
- Mitchy Collins

In addition to their late 2021 North American tour supporting their sophomore album 'conversations with myself about you', the trio also notched collaborations "Miss You A Little" with Bryce Vine, "games" with Tessa Violet and Matt Squire and more.

lovelytheband also recently rocked coast-to-coast shows in New York for The Bowery Presents' Summer Concert Series at Hudson Yards and Switchfoot's BRO-AM in San Diego, which "[gives] back to the San Diego community by heightening the profile of and providing grants to nonprofit organizations that provide services to homeless, at-risk and disadvantaged youth, with a special focus on programs related to music, art and surfing."

Adding to a string of hits dating back to their debut smash "broken", which broke the record for longest running entry on the Billboard Music Alternative Charts at 76 weeks, and lush sad-pop anthem "loneliness for love", "sail away" is the first hint of what's to come from the group's third studio album, due later this year.
