Meet Your New Favorites: The Backseat Lovers
As artists began to take the precarious steps into playing shows after a harrowing 16 months, a band that is about to blow away the competition is Provo, Utah’s The Backseat Lovers. A band that was supposed to have a huge 2020 tour, clearly stopped by Covid, they are in the early days of their ambitious but sure to be a rewarding return to the road, and they are about to become your new favorite band. For fans of everyone from Cage the Elephant to The Weeks, The Backseat Lovers are coming in hot with a vengeance.
Exploring new music has been a battle in the overwhelming saturation of new quarantine records hitting, countless tours being announced, but The Backseat Lovers are simply something you can’t miss. They’re one of those bands you’ll be proud to say you saw in the early days for sure. The buzz about the band is translating to a slew of long sold-out shows like their Cambridge date a week from tomorrow at The Sinclair, and a never-ending list of festival appearances throughout this year that include Lollapalooza in just a few days to ACL to Life Is Beautiful and so many more.
The band’s route of making music was an independent game. Self-releasing their EP, Elevator Days, and then their first full-length album, When We Were Friends, the band quickly made their mark in indie music radio with the single, “Kilby Girl” that has already surpassed 50 million streams on Spotify. The band is currently in the studio working on their follow-up record and this is sure to be only the beginning for this quartet. While the Cambridge show is sold out, tickets can still be picked up to several shows of the run at their website now!
