Though you'd never know it from the lousy weather, but the spring/summer season is in full effect. Students will soon be leaving school, multiplexes are touting their big-budget offerings and musicians are releasing what'll hopefully be your next summer anthem. New Jersey's Lost Romance have dropped a strong contender for the title.
Lost Romance was formed in 2011 by vocalist/guitarist Gerry Perlinski as a solo effort, with recording duties of the debut EP being handled with session musicians. The EP's mixer is credited as being the one to give Gerry the idea for performing with a full band and name. In 2012 Lost Romance released a live album entitled Live at Great Scott and an EP, The Light and the Dark in 2013. Since its inception, the band has had revolving lineup of drummers and bassists. However, the past year and a half has seen a steady trio with Dave Harman (drums) and Dan Haag (bass).
With an emphasis on three-chord blasts over studio gimmickry, Lost Romance's new single "Heart On A Wire" hearkens back to a sound that's both nostalgic and modern. The band is hard at work on the full album, and I for once can't wait to hear the rest.
Check out the single below. I dare you to not get that chorus stuck in your head! Can't get enough? You're in luck! "Heart On A Wire" is available to purchase on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.
