Lovelytheband - known for their edgy pop-rock music style and stage presence - kicked off their “Broken like me tour” last night at the Velvet underground in Toronto. Their first studio album “Finding it hard to smile” was just released on August 3rd with a combination of alternative rock/pop, which when added to the band’s edgy presence, made for a wildly appealing show.
The simplicity of the band’s lyrics can fool people at first but the music gives a way to the depth of the band’s character. In the age of short attention span and social media’s hype about how happy and cool everyone is – the band’s music is a fresh reminder of life outside of social media.
The opener Rad Horror showed equal California style explosive energy on stage with their grungy 90s style rock music. Their music can easily bring nostalgia to anybody who grew up in the 90’s listening to Kurt Cobain and Pearl Jam. Both bands are young and have a very bright future ahead of them.
