As if lost in their own creative world, April & Loren, better known as Lucky+Love, have found their sound of summer with their new single titled ‘Summertime Frolic’. An almost totally different style from their previous effort, ‘Digging in the Earth‘, but just as relevant in feeling and, as if taking said sound to a new level, layered. This is a soothing song with a lucid feeling of tranquility sprinkled about it that captivates the heart and stimulates the senses.

Lucky+Love have a brand of dark-electro pop that is in a league of its own. Consisting of band members Loren Luck and April Love, the pair have successfully incorporated synth-heavy bass with polyphonic harmonies which in result propels the music into a dreamy state.
Combined with April Love’s lush vocals, the two have mastered the art of live drumming, looping, and monophonic solos.
Inspired by artists such as New Order, OMD, Depeche Mode, Washed Out, Tycho, PJ Harvey, and Cocteau Twins, their sound falls beautifully into an everyman’s land between electro-rock, dream pop, electronica, and synth gaze. Justifiably also described as electro wave or indietronica, 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”.
This record is an electronic music record but comes from a more traditional place, where OMD or Kraftwork 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.
Their debut self-titled record was recorded at at Eagle Rock’s Cave Studio with Josiah Mazzaschi (Light FM), sessions with sound editor Morgen Stary, and Comp-ny Studio with Grammy winner Be Hussey (Guides). The vinyl release was mastered by Kevin Gray, who most recently engineered the reissue of Vangelis’s Blade Runner.
