The REGRETTES – ” I Love Us “

Posted: April 7, 2022 in MUSIC

Further Joy by The Regrettes

Los Angeles rockers The Regrettes are their most sophisticated yet on the synth-y “I Love Us,” which arrived along with a cheeky animated visual. These days, bandleader Lydia Night notes that she’s been inspired by Charli XCX, The 1975, St. Vincent and Brockhampton, so don’t be alarmed if you hear hints of eccentric pop infiltrating The Regrettes’ typical raw rock sound.

The Regrettes third studio album, “Further Joy”, released on the 8th of April via Warner Records. The band, consisting of singer and songwriter, Lydia Night, as well as Genessa Gariano (guitar), Brooke Dickson (bass) and Drew Thomsen (drums), have written a manual for living in these times, replete with highly personalized songs about things we’re all going through.

“Further Joy” is a step into the band’s next era, and it is their most actualized, collaborative, and vulnerable album to date. These new songs, written in Night’s singular voice and with vast influences including Pat Benatar, Blondie, and Gwen Stefani, touch on subjects such as anxiety and mental health, feeling lost in one’s own environment, and coming to terms with one’s sexuality. They are also about hope, embracing and standing up for your inner child. A lesson she hopes fans can take away from the album is that “we all deserve happiness and to be present, and we’ll never get there if we feel so much shame and guilt for not being there already,” she adds. “Don’t get caught constantly chasing joy.”

new song and vid out now!!! ‘What Am I Gonna Do Today?’ is a song we recorded ourselves remotely in quarantine and we hope it brings you as much joy as making it did for us

The Regrettes are a ‘punk’ band out of Los Angeles and with ‘Further Joy’ are onto their third album.  Punk is in inverted commas as this is about as punk as a washcloth. It’s polished alt-rock with nods back to Katy Perry and before that No Doubt and Blondie. It’s all about…you know… this shit we’re all going through right now.
