The REGRETTES – ” I Love Us / On the Road “

Posted: October 3, 2020 in MUSIC

If there’s one positive take away from several months of quarantine, it’s the joy of reconnecting with friends (and bandmates) after all that time away. Fortunately, we were able to capture this glee when the four LA-based rockers in The Regrettes met up to celebrate the release of their new single “I Love Us.”

Spending the day with the band—who had all been tested before the meetup—we documented their trip from picking up lunch at Bloom & Plume in LA’s Filipinotown, to a picnic in Elysian Park, to band rehearsal at Balboa Recording Studio.

Last fall, LA garage pop act The Regrettes gave us an in-depth look at their most recent album How Do You Love?, which they’re following up today with a one-off single, “I Love Us,” recorded for the final season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. Nearly hitting the reset button on their established buzzy sound, the new single is a synth-heavy affair promising a step forward on future releases.

“‘I Love Us’ to me represents great change and growth for The Regrettes,” shares the band’s Lydia Night. “This song showcases the kinds of risks and genre bending I hope to accomplish moving forward with our third album… I’m so inspired by artists like Charli XCX, The 1975, St Vincent, Brockhampton, and much more however, never would let myself get a little weird by combining the elements from those artists that I love with the type of raw rock and power pop I normally write.”

Along with the song, the band is sharing an animated visual for the track, documenting an affectionate relationship between a young woman and a robot. I wonder if it’s a spoiler for 13RW.
