We at The Honey POP love Lovejoy. This British indie band has been rising in popularity and on our music streaming stats. February 10th has truly been an iconic day for new music, and that very much includes Lovejoy’s new single, ‘Call Me What You Like.’ It’s heavier than their previous album, but we’re here for it, and we think other fans will be too.
It’s about the phase in any kind of relationship that isn’t a relationship yet, where you’re not sure of the ‘what are we?’ That idea that you want it to be more than just a fling but you’re struggling with the commitment.
Wilbur Soot, vocalist of Lovejoy
In addition to giving us this amazing song that we’ll definitely have on repeat, they also released a music video for it. It’s entertaining, but we especially love it since it truly encapsulates the meaning of the song. The music video starts off with a seemingly normal plane ride. But it quickly escalates into utter chaos. Like love, it’s turbulent. And in the end, whatever happens, happens. You can check out the music video below.
Need to hear this song live ASAP? Us too. Luckily, American fans won’t have to experience FOMO for much longer. Lovejoy is finally going on their first-ever US tour! The historic 20-date tour (including their first US festival performance) will begin in Nashville, TN, on May 4th and will end on June 10th in New York City at the Governor’s Ball. Dates and tickets can be found here.
Need more song recs? We got you covered. Here are some of the songs we’re hoping to hear live on their upcoming tour.
‘Oh Yeah, You Gonna Cry?’
This is the first song off of their debut album, Pebble Brain. And honestly, it’s perfect for starting off the album because it gives you a sense of what you can expect from them. It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek song, and we seriously love it.
This is one of our favorites from their EP, Are You Alright? released in 2021. The brass instruments really make it stand out. It’s such a high-energy song, and we can’t get enough of it. You can listen to it here.
‘It’s All Futile! It’s All Pointless!’
The final track on Pebble Brain is slightly more serious in content, talking about the subject of growing up. But to keep their lighthearted vibe, they end the song with, “Eat my rent and eat my food, and eat my dues… and maybe use a sextant.” Peak Lovejoy energy, and we’re here for it. You can listen to it here.
