British indie-rock group Lovejoy have today released their highly-anticipated new EP, ‘Wake Up & It’s Over’. Listen to the EP here.
The six track EP, which includes the previously released single ‘Call Me What You Like’ (a former BBC Radio 1 Tune of the Week) alongside a further five energetic indie pop tracks, is available now in a variety of formats including digital, CD and cassette. To coincide with the EP release, the band has also revealed an accompanying visualiser for the single ‘Portrait of a Blank Slate’ (watch here) as well as a video for ‘It’s Golden Hour Somewhere’ (watch here).
Lovejoy said: “After a year of radio silence we are overjoyed to finally release our new EP ‘Wake Up & It’s Over’. We’ve had an incredible time on the road so far, playing shows and meeting our amazing community. We can’t wait to see you all again in what is sure to be a momentous summer.”
The fast-rising young band performed a sold out UK and European tour earlier this year, and are now on their first ever North American headline tour performing 20 shows across the USA and Canada which sold out 25,000 tickets in just two minutes. The new dates follow Lovejoy’s first ever shows both in the UK and USA last year (all selling out in seconds) highlighting their huge fanbase, which includes 30 million fans across their social channels and 800 million global streams.
Ahead of the release of the EP, the band recently took part in Spotify’s Our Generation fan event and recorded two tracks for the Spotify Singles series including a stripped back version of ‘Call Me What You Like’ and a cover of Beabadoobee’s ‘The Perfect Pair’.
The band released their debut EP ‘Are You Alright?’ in May 2021 including the single ‘One Day’, which currently boasts over 114 million streams on Spotify alone and continues to climb. They quickly followed up with ‘Pebble Brain’ in October 2021 – a second EP comprising of seven tracks which debuted at Number 12 on the official UK Album Chart based on streaming alone.
