San Francisco’s The Lovebirds have shared the music video for Filled with Hate, which is lifted from their debut EP. Watch the video via YouTube below.
Founded by San Francisco Locals (born and raised) and the brains behind Melters Records, The Lovebirds make superb jangly power pop with grit…
All of them jam their instruments with technique and style. Filled With Hate is about leaving Los Angeles for San Francisco.
Here’s a little more explanation from the band about the band: “You can go pretty far nowadays on the idea of a Band, but The Lovebirds don’t have time for that shit. Whether you wear denim, leather, or tie-dye it’s only worth about an El Rio drink ticket if you don’t know how to write the tunes and The Lovebirds wear a cloak of many colors. The guitars weave together beautifully, leads, hooks and riffs arranged like an American cheese platter. The rhythm section takes the cheese and deftly makes a deli sandwich, playing with smarts and panache. This is the kind of band that you can smoke weed with the drummer outside the bar and talk in-depth about the annexation of Hawaii and then walk inside, look the guitarist straight in the eye and say, “R.E.M is better than Teenage Fanclub” and he’ll still drive your fool ass home. They’ve even got a dude in the band who says funny shit on stage. You can take one look at them and know they learn things from books and write songs with instruments (no, seriously).”
