about

"Back to Me" is the first in a series of singles planned for release by the Loved over the first half of 2017. A full compilation of the singles and their B-sides is planned for release later in the year.

With most all of the tracks for the new album having been recorded live in two days at a pop-up studio in Portland’s warehouse district, the result is an exciting collection of songs self-described as a “step-up” by the Loved from its previous 5-song EP released in Summer 2016. These songs hold true to the band's belief that every song needs a memorable melody and a rhythm that should move you.

about

the Loved Portland, Oregon

NEXT SHOW: June 16th, The Secret Society (Portland).

Portland, Oregon based trio, the Loved believe in the simple power of three chords and the truth.

Lael Alderman’s assured vocals are undergirded by muscular yet sparse arrangements. With Daven Hall on bass, and Jake Endicott on drums, the Loved evoke influences as diverse as Elvis Costello, Guided By Voices, Spoon, Ryan Adams and The Smiths.

Track Name: back to me
take it from the start
oh
it’s always been my favorite part
nothing like
those looser ends

and where we go from there
depends
not upon some best laid plans
‘cause those always
fall apart

but you don’t want to say
it’s
so
right now it’s the only
thing
you know

let it be, let it be
let it be and you’ll come back to me
back to me, back to me...


here we go again
spin
this merry-go-‘round that we’re in
isn’t the end
just another start

come apart
too soon
if you’ll be my sun, let me be your moon
let me glow
across your room

but you don’t want to say
it’s
so
right now it’s the only
thing
you know

let it be, let it be
let it be and you’ll come back to me
back to me, back to me...
Track Name: run away
funny how a dart to the heart
goes straight to your head
even now
I can’t say what you said
all the things you thought true
all the pictures of you
and before you left me
you said

I’m a-gonna run away
yeah, I’m gonna run away...


all my time,
wasted,
waiting for you
and if I
had to do it again
I don’t know if I could

you're kind of like a thought I forgot
or a dream left in bed
either way
I can’t say what you said
sometimes just getting through
is the best you can
and in the end
I’ll come and find you

when you run away
yeah, when you run away
when you run away
Track Name: cruelest month of the year
the cruelest month of the year
ended the way that it began here
in fireworks & in fear
of losing what we hold so dear
why are we here

if just to count our days
if just to run through the mirrors and maze
of a life we’ve lived on loan
with regrets & mistakes we don’t even own
here in the cruelest month of the year

all that we are
all that we fear
it will stay here
in the cruelest month of the year


well, time will let you know
yes, time has a way, a way all its own
to lift you up so high
to let you down so low
oh, in the cruelest month of the year

all that we are
all that we fear
it will stay here
in the cruelest month of the year
