Kicking off with the energetic and bombastic “Hats Off,” All You Need Is Lovechild is bonafide rock ‘n’ roll for the modern day. The highly anticipated debut album from New York City band Lovechild, All You Need Is Lovechild is a nine track self-produced album that ranges from feisty, scuzzy, riff-heavy rolling classic rock anthems to more introspective, vulnerable, and wistful tracks. Written over the course of six years, the album encapsulates the ups and downs, the struggles and successes, the loves and losses of existing and navigating life as a twenty-something in New York.
Glide is proud to premiere the album before it’s January 14th release date. For fans of Bob Dylan, Father John Misty, and Courtney Barnett, stream the album here:
Lovechild is the New York City-based project of singer-songwriter Leo Lovechild, guitarist Aaron Mones, and multi-instrumentalist and producer Wyatt Mones. Together, they craft infectious rock music with classic sensibilities and a modern touch. The lyrics are clever, catchy, wry, a nod to Leo’s poetry background, and filled with energy, emotion, and a ton of character thanks to Leo’s delivery.
Alongside the album, the band is also sharing a short documentary “Driving With Leo.” Filmed by longtime collaborator Jack Tumen, “Driving With Leo” follows frontman, poet, singer-songwriter Leo Lovechild driving through his hometown of New York City, where he shares his musings on life, music, writing, and New York, offering a companion and context to the album.
Their debut album All You Need is Lovechild, is inspired by life in and around New York City, all the mystique and romance that surrounds that notion, and by the band itself and their journey together in life and in music. It’s music that’s meant to be as hopeful as it is sad, a reflection of the drive and determination it takes to keep going and striving for happiness every day. Leo confides, “Some songs are romantic, some are angry, some are wistful, but in its entirety the music is an expression of the human drive to keep going and keep striving for the potentially unattainable in the midst of a world that often tries to beat us down with struggle and strife.”
