LOVING ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM IF I AM ONLY MY THOUGHTS COMING JANUARY 31 VIA LAST GANG RECORDS
UNVEIL NEW SNGLE LATELY IN ANOTHER TIME
PRE-ORER IF I AM ONLY MY THOUGHTS HERE
Toronto, ON – December 4, 2019 – Loving's intimate, lo-fi psychedelic folk songs inspire a sense of ease, yet are deceptively intricate. They offer a space to ruminate in life's uncertainties and acknowledge the often-strange journey of being alive.
After a highly acclaimed self-released EP, which organically found success online, Loving return with their first full-length album, If I Am Only My Thoughts – set for release on January 31 via Last Gang Records. Today, they have revealed their latest single, Lately In Another Time. Watch the official music video for Lately In Another Time here.
"There isn't a single narrative driving this album, but we do linger on some basic human problems: confusion in the face of a desire for self-knowledge and belonging, a struggle for meaning that is circular and sometimes seemingly endless," Jesse says. On If I Am Only My Thoughts, those looming questions go largely unanswered. They are fodder for further contemplation, delivered with a peaceful naturalism in the vein of contemporaries like Bedouine and Kevin Morby.
Victoria, BC's Loving is the collaboration of David Parry and brothers, Lucas and Jesse Henderson. With lyrics written by both Jesse and Lucas, the lush, homespun collection of songs was recorded to tape, mixed, and mastered by David in his self-described cold, dismal basement studio in Victoria. In contrast, these songs are balmy and inviting, comprised of a series of open-ended questions that circle existential themes.

Lately In Another Time Lyrics:
Panning for gold without a river in sight
fingers crossed throughout the night
you can hear the sound
what you've been feeling
won't stick around
all of this I spend just getting by
sometimes forget to wonder why
lately in another time
the sound is not quite the same
I'm waking in a new place
without need for all these names
maybe these lines on my skin
will one day answer the questions I'm asking
but for now I'll keep an eye
on the water reflecting the open sky
